Gucci Mane Faces Up To 20 Years On Federal Gun Charges

Gucci Mane faces a maximum of 10 years each for two federal gun charges.

Gucci Mane has been charged in federal court with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon, leaving the rapper facing major jail time.

CNN reported the charges, which stem from two September incidents during which the rapper showed a gun and threatened police, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

At the time of his arrest on September 14, a friend had flagged down police, stating that he was concerned about Gucci's behavior.

Police say the rapper became "increasingly agitated" and threatened the officers. He was taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct, marijuana possession, and carrying a handgun.

The federal prosecutor provided a news release. "On September 12, 2013, Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found in possession of a firearm," the release said. "Then, just two days later, on September 14th, he again possessed a firearm different from the earlier gun. On both occasions, Davis displayed the loaded firearm, acted erratically, and made threats to individuals, including police and his attorney."

Atlanta Police Chief George Turner applauded the arrest. "We cannot tolerate convicted felons ignoring the law by carrying firearms and endangering our citizens."

U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates also spoke on the matter. "This is how people get hurt, and we are committed to ensuring that convicted felons not have guns," she said.

A federal grand jury indicted Gucci on November 19. Each charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

In March, Gucci was arrested for hitting a man over the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub.

    6 foot 2 300 pounds of nothing but a real nigga. People saying gucci killing someone was an accident are jokes. How was it an accident when he shot at a nigga cus he tried robbing his chain and plead as self defence and won. Gucci shot the nigga to death with out any remorse like a real nigga would do salute big guwop.

    Also, quite unbelievable the amount of cock suckers on here saying 'lock him up'. That's little more than snitching, why are you wishing jail on a man you don't know?? But most of you will turn round in the same breath and criticise Officer Ricky for being a CO. Fuck you all.

      fish you dumb as hell snitching is when you tell on somebody to get your own sentence reduced or thrown out not telling some dumbass rapper he should be locked up you aint a street nigga or you would know the difference

      "That's little more than snitching, why are you wishing jail on a man you don't know??" criminals belong in jail. its pretty simple. why should gucci mane get special treatment just cause he makes rap music? if i did half the shit he did i would still be locked up. hes had plenty of chances to clean up his act but goes back to jail multiple times a year for years now

      Shut cha ignorant ass up. Tip didn't snitch and has something you will never have. That's wealth. Rich people don't do much time at all. Money reduces their sentence or buys freedom.

      I've thought that TI sentence was bullshit for years, definitely snitching going on.

    if your black and you hate on gucci you should be ashamed. Hes probably the only nigga that allways keeps it real. Real niggas from the south appreciate gucci its just these media fead industry puppets who hate on a real nigga like gucci.

      We should all be blessed. We have the official spokesperson for all black people posting here.

    • Jake

      Dude are you for real right now? Gucci isn't respectable by anyone. He's a terrible artist, and as we see here he is a complete psycho. He himself is a "media fed puppet" and is not "real" just for committing crimes and carrying weapons. His music is anything from real, especially to anybody with a double digit IQ.

    • Anonymous

      whats so great and respectable about a thug criminal who cant stay out of jail when he has a legal way of making real good money for him and his team?

  • Anonymous

    He must love it in there. Who do you know who raps and go to jail and doesn't get better at rappin, or come home not any smarter and fat? Unless he's a wide receiver for the(butt)raiders, he should be swole with bars for days as much as he's been in there.

  • hahahahahaha

    aaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahhhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahaha have fun Gucci!

  • Maury P

    Dude career shot anyway, for all the low-minded boxed in minds that think he hot remember Gucci had some singles and a slew of mixtapes. Can any Gucci fan name one Gucci album not a single that went gold. He killed himself alienating himself like Fifty did. When your buzz die you can't collab cause you gave folks a bad taste. I think it's lights out and all his rants worked against any attention and progress he thought he could get. Wall Street Quote : " A fool and his money where lucky enough to meet in the first place" What should have been a decent living turned out to make him a killer, unstable and now financially in ruin. Lawyers are the pimps here, he just some lawyers a couple hundred thousand to save his neck.

    maybe at that time he learn how to rap ...

    its too many fuck niggas around gucci for someone to flagg down the police cause he was acting "erratic"... a dude with his kind of celebrity should be able to carry as many weapons as he need

    • NEGRO PLEASE

      So celebrities should get a pass because they can rap, sing or dance? Negro PLEASE! He is a convicted felon,he CANNOT possess a firearm in the United States. He should have hired an armed bodyguard if he was that damn scared.

      i strongly disagree. a mentally unstable drug addict with a history of violence should be no where near any weapons

  • insanemacbeth

    silly billy. didn't he buss' bare cases? at least he's 'real' to THE LIFE, though.

  • Gucci The ROAT

    Atleast Gucci is a real street nigga. Fake niggas: * Nas never sold drugs. Remember when Jay-Z said "i showed you your first tech at Large professors tour" * Mobb Deep were at the school of arts. So when did they there robberies and shootouts???????? * Ice Cube never was a gangbanger and was bullied at school according to his old forgotten homies. * Big L never was a gangster. (r.i.p.) * 2Pac never sold drugs. Suge Knight was the mussles behind 2pac because without him 2pac was a coward. * Eminem never killed someone or was a serial killer. His image was made up by Interscipe Records to sell records. Lol the angry frustrated white kid. * Snoop sold some drugs but was just a SMALL soldier. * T.I. is a snitch how can you get away with housearest for illegal weapons without snitching? Normally you 10 years! * Young Jeezy was already exposed by Gucci as a fraud.

    • NONO

      * Nas did sell drugs. Everyone in QB knows it. My people are still there. * Mobb Deep were not. Prodigy went to his grandmother's school as a child. Just like you watched cartoons as a child... * Ice Cube never claimed to be a gangbanger...Only a NWA * Big L comes from a family of Og's. He was murdered froma retaliation of a threat his brother gave to someone. * 2Pac was an "intellectual nut" as his brother would call it, and you can't spell muscle as mussle.(what are you 5?) * Nobody thinks "Eminem" is a killer...Well maybe the same people who think Sylvester Stallone is really Rocky. * Snoop wasn't a soldier(unless you're taling Master P), he is an official Crip member. * T.I. didn't Snitch. GA knows he didn't, but T.I. has a past himself...More pull than some think * I remember when "Young Jeezy" had someone I know scared to death when he had that choppa with him. He ain't soft at all. Gucci never came at him for a reason. * Gucci apologized for that self defense shooting, and then bragged about it after everyone was in jail..Funny that he's apologizing and suing people who put him on like Zaytoven. Gucci exposed himself... "The only people who think Gucci is a real gangster are out of state". GA don't respect that boy like that.

    Thank God. About time someone locked this talentless nigga up. He should get lumped in prison, then we'll see how "gangsta" and "real" he is.

  • WaleMeekStalley

    What type of friend flags down the police? When a person is acting erratic you alert their closest friends and family members or someone they are close to whom they listen to but you never flag down no damn police. I hope Gucci gets rehab for his drug issues and some counseling for his mental issues but 20 years for a non-violent crime is insane and extreme.

    • Anonymous

      " 20 years for a non-violent crime is insane and extreme" gucci has already been convicted of multiple violent crimes though including multiple assaults! 3 strikes you out nicca

    • Anonymous

      "you alert their closest friends and family members or someone they are close to whom they listen to but you never flag down no damn police." I'm pretty sure Gucci had already alienated and dissed most of his close friends and family at this point... it was just after his twitter rant going at everybody. fact is he was a danger to himself and everybody around him. hes mentally unstable.

    • Police

      It's for the good of the public. If you had someone brandishing a gun & acting a donkey, wouldn't you want to alert the authorities? They have guns as well, so they're best suited for the situation.

    lol dumbass nigga. I hope he gets all 20 years so he can finally stop putting out shitty ass music like that one song on GTA 5 that gets on my fucking nerves every time it comes on.

    Gucci Mane is a great rapper and solidified himself as a music legend. A truly smart and talented individual but sadly long drug usage is his downfall. I hope he doesnt go to prison for that long cause I and many others enjoy Gucci's music. If he goes though it is what it is. Stay away from hard drugs kids

    • Anonymous

      if he goes to jail his lyrics will be studied, examined, and discussed by scholars for centuries and a statue will be made in his honor by the metro mall in atlanta...BURR

      "Stay away from hard drugs kids" is the only accurate thing that you've typed. You need to stay away from all drugs if you consider this no talent having ice cream face nigga a music legend.
