  1. In that post you word something like Gucci was in jail for throwing the woman out of the car. That was a civil case though and so that's not possible I don't think. (What came of that case btw?) Also, you're not terribly clear on which offense Gucci was most recently in jail for. (Which?)

    1. Gucci was hit with two cases for throwing a woman out of a car, a civil one and a criminal one. In the criminal one he was given jail time, in the civil one he was ordered to pay restitution. I encourage you to read my friend Jordan's Thought Catalog article about the incident: http://thoughtcatalog.com/2011/gucci-mane-heading-back-to-prison/

      Re: his most recent offense, read the beginning of the article:
      "Last Friday, Gucci “Guwop” Mane was released from jail...Gucci had been incarcerated for smashing a champagne bottle over the head of a fan who asked him for a photograph. “I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane,” said the fan, “and Gucci Mane hit me in the head with a bottle. As I looked at him in the shock of why, one of his friends hit me in the side of my face.”
      He posted $75,000 bond for that charge, but found himself locked up again within 24 hours for an unrelated probation violation. There’s been no word yet on the second aggravated assault charge he might face for punching another fan in the jaw a mere two days after the alleged bottle incident."
