Listen to Gucci Mane on iHeartRadio

Gucci Mane is facing drug and weapons charges after being arrested early Saturday morning in Atlanta. 

According to the "Atlanta Journal Constitution," one of the rapper's friends called police because he was worried about Gucci's behavior.  Police encountered Gucci Mane - born Radric Davis - walking down the street just before 1:00 a.m. Saturday. 

He reportedly became "increasingly agitated with officers," allegedly cursing at them and threatening them.  Gucci was then taken into custody and officers discovered he was carrying a handgun as well as a small amount of marijuana. 

He was booked on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and marijuana possession.  

Gucci Mane has been in trouble with the law numerous times.  Earlier this year, he was charged with assault for allegedly hitting a fan with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub.
