Rapper Gucci Mane has had an arrest warrant ordered against
him after an alleged assault incident in a club. A soldier with the United States Army claims
that he was at a nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month. According to the soldier’s account, he
spotted Mane in the VIP area and went up to the security guard to ask permission
to enter the exclusive area in order to take a photograph with the rapper. The soldier, who is only named as “James” in
the complaint, claims that he was still speaking to the security guard when
Mane himself hit the soldier on the head with a bottle. No further violence is known to have ensued,
but the soldier told media outlets that his head wound required 10 stitches to
Police were not called to the scene of the incident, but a warrant for the
arrest of the rapper was later issued, and Atlanta law
enforcement agents spoke to media outlets hoping Mane would contact them to
resolve the issue. Mane is currently
being sought on suspicion of aggravated assault.
For those who do not already know, having a warrant out for
your arrest means that at any point that law enforcement agents spot you, they
can arrest you on site. Arrest warrants
can be issued for a variety of reasons, usually because local police or law
enforcement suspects you of having committed a crime. In Mane’s case, he is suspected of committing
the crime of aggravated assault. If you
think that law enforcement agencies may have issued a warrant for you arrest,
you need to contact a criminal defense attorney right away. A good attorney can use a number of methods
to help you, including contacting authorities to possibly cancel the warrant if
you have not yet been taken into custody.
If you have already been arrested, your attorney can work to have you
released without bail, or to lower your bail if it has already been set. An experienced attorney will know what kind
of documents and information the court will need in order for you to be
released from police custody, and can then help you fight potential criminal
charges. In many cases your attorney may
be able to have the criminal charges against you reduced or even dismissed altogether.
