ATLANTA -- An arrest warrant has been issued for Gucci Mane after a fan accused the rapper of hitting him in the head with a champagne bottle at a downtown Atlanta nightclub.
Authorities say 32-year-old James Lettley, of Fort Hood, Texas, tried making conversation with the rapper -- whose real name is Radric Davis -- in the VIP section of Harlem Nights Ultra Lounge on March 16.
Police department spokesman Sgt. Greg Lyon says the rapper is accused of hitting Lettley in the head, causing a gash on the man's head. Police say Lettley was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Lyon says a warrant has been issued for aggravated assault. Calls to numbers listed for Lettley and Davis were not returned. It's unclear if the rapper has an attorney.
