ATLANTA -

Gucci Mane has been arrested by Atlanta police for the second time this year.

The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arrested by Atlanta Police just before 1 a.m. Saturday after cussing out officers who were flagged down by a friend of Davis near the corner of Moreland and East Confederate avenues.

Police say the 33-year-old Birmingham native had been acting erratic and the friend had become concerned over his health and safety.

Officers found Davis had a handgun and a small amount of marijuana on him. They took him Grady Hospital as a precaution.

Davis will be charged for disorderly conduct, drug possession and carrying a firearm by a convicted felon. He will be booked into the Fulton County Jail once he is released from the hospital.

Gucci Mane was last in the headlines in August when his request before a Fulton County Judge to perform community service for assault charges was denied. Police say the rapper smashed a bottle of champagne over a fan's head at an Atlanta nightclub in April. He was still awaiting a trial on those charges.
