According to APD Officer John Chafee, shorty before 1 a.m., officers responded to a call from a friend of Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis. Upon arrival in the area of Moreland and East Confederate avenues, officers were flagged down by the caller, who advised he was concerned about the erratic way Davis had been acting.
When officers approached the nearby Davis, he became “increasingly agitated with officers and began cursing and threatening them,” according the Chafee.
Officers took Davis, 33, into custody and discovered he was armed with a handgun and had a small amount of marijuana with him.
As a precaution, Davis was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and charged with carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct, marijuana possession and related charges.
The incident comes after Davis was indicted this past spring on an assault charge after he was accused of hitting a soldier in the head with a champagne bottle in a downtown Atlanta club. He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
In 2005, the artist was charged with murder in DeKalb County after shooting a fellow rapper he said had assaulted him. The charges were subsequently dropped.
