Gucci Mane was arrested on Friday on a misdemeanor battery charge from an incident in January in which the rapper allegedly pushed a woman out a moving car. According to police, Gucci picked up a woman at a mall near Atlanta, invited her to breakfast and attempted to give her $150 in exchange for her accompanying him to a hotel room. When she refused, he threw her out of his vehicle.

In addition to the battery charge, Gucci Mane will also be charged with violating his probation. The rapper has had several run-ins with the law since being released from an Atlanta prison after serving six months of a one-year sentence for violating probation on an assault charge. In November he was arrested for driving erratically and attacking a man, and he was detained during a raid of fellow emcee Waka Flocka Flame's home in December.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
