A warrant has been issued for a rapper who performed in Evansville Saturday night.
The arrest warrant was issued for Gucci Mane after a fan accused the rapper of hitting him in the head with a champagne bottle at a downtown Atlanta nightclub.
Authorities say 32-year-old James Lettley, of Fort Hood, Texas, tried making conversation with the rapper - whose real name is Radric Davis - in the VIP section of Harlem Nights Ultra Lounge on March 16.
Police department spokesman Sgt. Greg Lyon says the rapper is accused of hitting Lettley in the head, causing a gash on the man's head.
Police say Lettley was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Lyon says a warrant has been issued for aggravated assault.
Calls to numbers listed for Lettley and Davis were not returned. It's unclear if the rapper has an attorney.
We're told the concert in Evansville went on as scheduled.
Authorities say Davis was not arrested by officers in Evansville due to the warrant not calling for extradition back to Georgia.
