Arrest Warrant Issued For Gucci Mane For Allegedly Hitting Soldier In The Head With A Champagne BottlePosted: March 23, 2013
A soldier, identified as 32-year-old James Leonard Lettley, says he approached Gucci at an Atlanta nightclub last Friday for a picture when the rapper attacked him, striking him in the head with a champagne bottle.
Pictures taken of the alleged victim show a gash on the top of his head.
James told Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri that he was asking a security guard for permission to get a photo with Guwop when the assault took place.
“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.”.
The Army veteran was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he needed 10 stitches to close his wound.
