Gucci Mane Pleads Not Guilty in Soldier Assault Case


Gucci Mane


The 'Nothin' on Ya' hitmaker denies hitting a soldier with a bottle outside a club back in March.

Gucci Mane pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault. The rapper showed up at Fulton County Superior Court on Monday, May 14 to enter his not guilty plea connected to an alleged assault where he hit a soldier's head with a bottle outside a nightclub in Atlanta back in March 26.

Prosecutors alleged that Gucci struck a soldier named James Lettley in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub when the Lettley asked if he could get a photo with the rapper. The attack caused deep cuts on Lettley's head and he claimed he needed several stitches. Mane's lawyer, Drew Findling, argued that no evidence exists against his client other than the alleged victim's report.

Mane was indicted on April 9 and was released from custody on April 12 after posting $75,000 bail. He could only enjoy his freedom for less than 24 hours since he was sent behind bars again on April 13 for allegedly violating probation which had nothing to do with the assault case. Mane was freed on May 2.

Mane has been jailed for several other run-ins with law, including alleged murder, drug offenses, battery, reckless driving, and disorderly conduct for pushing a woman out of a moving car.
