Gucci Mane Sentenced Psychiatric Facility

A judge in the Superior Court of Georgia's Fulton County ordered rapper Gucci Mane to a psychiatric hospital on Monday. Mane was arrested in November for alleged reckless driving; the charges were soon dropped, but Gucci nonetheless faced possible revocation of his probation from a previous crime.
According to our friends at Entertainment Weekly, the court documents reveal that his lawyers filed a Special Plea of Mental Incompetency on December 27th arguing that Mane is unable "to go forward and/or intelligently participate in the probation revocation hearing." He is currently awaiting a hearing on his competency. In the meantime, the judge ordered yesterday that Gucci be transported to an Atlanta hospital identified on its website as "an 111-bed psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment facility."
Get well soon, Gucci!
