• Second victim comes forward with claims of Gucci Mane assault

    By: Amy Napier Viteri


    ATLANTA - Channel 2 Action News has learned of a second man who says rapper Gucci Mane assaulted him two nights after he allegedly hit a soldier over the head with a bottle at a downtown Atlanta club.

    Atlanta police tell Channel 2's Amy Napier Viteri they still haven't heard from Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, about when he will come to Atlanta and turn himself in.

    After Viteri's story aired about Davis attacking a soldier in a downtown club, another man reached out to Viteri saying Davis assaulted him just two nights later in Philadelphia.

    "I haven't ever been so humiliated in my life and disrespected," the victim, who asked only to be called TJ, told Viteri Monday night.

    TJ said Davis punched him in the jaw in the early hours of March 18 in Philadelphia two days after Atlanta police said Davis hit a soldier over the head with a champagne bottle at Harlem Nights club on Courtland Street in Atlanta.

    "He punched me on the left side of my face, right here in the jaw, knocking off my glasses," TJ told Viteri.

    TJ said he was at Club Onyx in Philadelphia to see Gucci Mane perform. Afterward, he said he tried to shake hands and say hello and the rapper responded with a punch to the face.

    TJ showed Viteri tweets from witnesses. One person wrote "Why did Gucci Mane punch the dude in the face?"

    "I sustained a chipped tooth in the back. I sustained also swelling on the left side," TJ told Viteri.

    On March 16, Channel 2 Action News was there as police responded to the Harlem Nights club on where they said Davis hit a soldier over the head with a champagne bottle.

    The soldier told Viteri he asked for a photo with the rapper. He shared pictures with Viteri that show his head injury which ended in stitches and a concussion.

    TJ said he was shocked at the report Gucci hit another fan. In his case, he said he walked away to keep others from jumping in.

    "I was totally outnumbered. Them guys they would have dogged me if I tried to swing back," TJ said.

    Despite the warrant for his arrest, Gucci performed in Evansville, Ind., Saturday night.

    TJ said he feels betrayed by an artist he's supported for years.

    "You just don't go around hitting your fans," TJ said.

    Atlanta police told Viteri they have tried to reach Davis but have been unsuccessful so far.

    Gucci Mane has shows scheduled in Florida and Virginia in the coming weeks, but investigators are hoping to talk to him before then.
