As Def Sounds previously reported, Gucci Mane was released from the Fulton County jail on bond, April 12th, after being indicted in connection to his aggravated assault case. The following day, he was back in a different jail, Dekalb County, as he was once again arrested, but this time on a probation violation for an unrelated charge. Now, Gucci Mane has been released from Dekalb County.
According to TMZ, earlier today, Gucci Mane was released from Georgia’s Dekalb County jail after being locked up for just about three weeks.
The Atlanta rapper’s lawyer, Drew Findling, says Gucci’s probation violation stemmed from the March nightclub incident when he allegedly broke a bottle over a U.S. soldiers head after he asked to take a picture with the rapper.
Gucci Mane will be back in an Atlanta courtroom later this month to face the aforementioned aggravated assault charges, which he was indicted for on April 12th.
Update: According to new reports, although free from jail, Gucci Mane has been placed on house arrest.
As reported by AHH, Gucci Mane is presently on house arrest in Atlanta, not completely free as previously reported.
