At one point in his career, after multiple jail and prison stints, Gucci Mane vowed to stay on the straight and narrow, but somewhere a long the way, he’s lost his way… and has gotten himself into some trouble.
The Atlanta rap star is wanted by police for allegedly hitting 32-year-old soldier James Leonard Lettley over the head with a champagne bottle at Harlem Nights nightclub last Friday (March 22), after he asked for a photo, reports WSBTV Channel 2.
James said that he was asking a security guard for permission to get a photo with Gucci… and was assaulted instead.
“I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it OK?” James said he asked the security guard. “I was speaking to the security guard, and Gucci Mane hit me in the head with a bottle. And, as I looked at him in the shock of why, one of his friends hit me in the side of my face.”
Following the incident, an arrest warrant was issued for the rapper.
Now, a second man has come forward accusing Guwop of assault, as well. WSBTV also reports that a Philadelphia man — who asked to only be identified as TJ — called them to say Gucci punched him in the face at Club Onyx in Philly, just two days after he allegedly assaulted the soldier.
“I haven’t ever been so humiliated in my life and disrespected,” TJ told Channel 2 Monday night (March 25). “He punched me on the left side of my face, right here in the jaw, knocking off my glasses.”
TJ claims he approached the rap star to say hello and shake his hand when the attack happened.
“I sustained a chipped tooth in the back. I sustained also swelling on the left side,” TJ told Viteri. “I was totally outnumbered. Them guys they would have dogged me if I tried to swing back. You just don’t go around hitting your fans.”
Police are still looking for Gucci Mane, and are hoping to talk to him before he leaves town for upcoming shows in Florida and Virginia.
