Troubled Rapper Gucci Mane was arrested Saturday in Atlanta for disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed weapon, and possession of marijuana, police said.

The arrest was just the latest on Mane's laundry list of a rap sheet.

It started around midnight Saturday when a friend of Mane's – whose real name is Radric Davis – flagged down police officers on an Atlanta street and complained that the rapper was acting erratically.

Officers claimed that when they approached Mane he began "cursing and threatening" them, according to TMZ. He was taken into custody and, upon searching him, police found a small amount of marijuana and a handgun.

As a convicted felon, Mane, 33, is not permitted to carry a weapon.

He was booked and taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.

Mane has had many run-ins with the law over the years.

In March, he was arrested for hitting a man over the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub. The man told police the incident occurred after he tried to strike up a conversation with the rapper.

In 2011, a judge ordered Mane to a psychiatric hospital.

In 2005, Mane was charged with murder in the shooting death of a man, but the charge was later dropped because of insufficient evidence.
