The Atlanta-based rapper known as Gucci Mane said he’s innocent of accusations that he hit a soldier over the head with a champagne bottle in March at a night club.
Monday morning, the rap star, whose real name is Radric Davis, pleaded not guilty to an aggravated assault charge in a Fulton County courtroom, his attorney said.
“He’s out on bond, just going about his life,” Drew Findling said.
According to reports, a fan was trying to get a picture with Davis at the time of alleged incident.
Findling argued following Davis’ bond hearing that no evidence exists against his client other than the alleged victim’s report.
Davis has been arrested more than a dozen times since his rise to popularity, most notably for a 2005 murder charge that eventually was dropped.
A Fulton County Superior Court judge set Davis’ bond at $75,000 for the March assault charge, and he was released from jail last month.
