ATLANTA (AP) — Rapper Gucci Mane was being held in jail on an assault charge after a fan told police the rap artist smashed a champagne bottle on his head in a downtown Atlanta nightclub.

Fulton County Jail records show that Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, was in custody early Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon.

An arrest warrant was issued for the rapper after James Lettley of Fort Hood, Texas, who is a member of the military, told police Mr. Davis struck him at Harlem Nights Club on March 16. Mr. Lettley said he was hoping to get a picture with the rapper when he was attacked.

It was unclear whether Mr. Davis has an attorney.
