Rapper and actor Gucci Mane had been arrested in Atlanta on assault charges after he allegedly hit a photo-seeking soldier in the head with a champagne bottle at a nightclub.

The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, turned himself in to police and was booked at the Fulton County Jail Tuesday. He was expected to go before a judge this morning. It’s unclear whether he has entered a plea.

Mane, 33, who plays a gang kingpin in the new movie “Spring Breakers,” was in the VIP area at the Harlem Nights club in Atlanta March 16 when a soldier approached the area to have a photo taken, according to ABC affiliate WSBTV.

“I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it OK?” the soldier told WSBTV he had asked a security guard.

The rapper then struck him in the head “with a champagne bottle, causing a severe laceration to the top of his head,” according to a copy of the incident report obtained by ABCNews.com.

Police said Gucci Mane left before they arrived and was possibly traveling in a white Chevy Tahoe.

The soldier, whom The Associated Press  identified as James Lettley, said he was surprised that Mane reacted so violently to a simple request.

After Mane allegedly attacked him, Lettley was taken to a local hospital where he received 10 stitches, WSBTV reported.

According to police records, Mane was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon.
