ATLANTA -- Gucci Mane has been denied bond on charges stemming from a fan's accusation that the rapper hit him in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub.

A fan says the rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, hit him in the club's V.I.P. area March 16 while he tried to take a picture with Gucci Mane. The fan, James Lettley, says he needed 10 stitches.

Davis was in custody on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon and appeared in court Wednesday.

The rapper's attorney, Drew Findling, tells WSB-TV that Davis' criminal history made it difficult for a judge to set bond. Fulton County jail records show Davis has been arrested 10 times since 2005.
