Gucci Mane has been committed to a mental health treatment facility after he filed a “Special Plea of Mental Incompentency” in a Georgia courtroom yesterday. The plea claims that the rapper would be unable to “intelligently participate” in his probation revocation hearing; his condition is currently being evaluated at the facility.
Gucci Mane has had a few run-ins with the law since being released from an Atlanta prison in May after serving six months of a one-year sentence for violating probation on an assault charge. Though he vowed to focus on music at the time, the rapper was arrested for driving erratically and attacking a man in November, though charges were later dropped. He was also detained during a raid of fellow emcee Waka Flocka Flame’s home in December.
