The rapper, who co-stars in "Spring Breakers," reportedly cracked a bottle over the head of a fan.

Gucci Mane is reportedly wanted by the Atlanta Police Department after a soldier claimed that he was assaulted by the rapper at a local club last week.

According to Atlanta's Channel 2 (via WSBTV), an arrest warrant was issued for the troubled MC after a soldier approached Mane in the VIP section of the Harlem Nights club on the evening of Mar. 15. When the soldier, who is only referring to himself as "James" in media interviews, asked a security guard if he could take a picture with the rapper, Mane reportedly hit the man over the head with a champagne bottle.

"And as I looked at him in the shock of why, one of his friends hit me in the side of my face," says James, who was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital and received 10 stitches for the cut on his head. James, who serves in the Army, was out with friends to celebrate his birthday.

Atlanta police have since issued a warrant for the rapper (real name: Radric Davis) for aggravated assault. Mane was at Harlem Nights promoting his new mixtapes Trap Back 2 and East Atlanta Memphis, the latter a joint release with Young Dolph.

The 33-year-old MC has spent much of his career battling legal issues: Mane has been arrested for battery, probation violation and reckless driving, among other disturbances. The rapper -- who co-stars in the recently released Spring Breakers -- served a six-month jail sentence in 2011.
