Gucci Mane

Committed to Mental Facility

1/4/2011 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Gucci Mane believes he's not mentally competent to fight prosecutors' efforts to revoke his probation ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Gucci Mane

The 30-year-old rapper -- real name Radric Davis -- appeared in a Georgia courtroom yesterday after filing a "Special Plea of Mental Incompetency" ... in which he explained he was in no state to "intelligently participate in the probation revocation hearing."

Gucci is accused of violating his probation by reportedly getting in an altercation during a November traffic stop.

According to the document, the judge ordered Gucci into custody -- and immediately committed the rapper into a mental health treatment facility pending an evaluation of his mental condition.

We're told Gucci is currently at the treatment facility.

UPDATE: Gucci Mane has added an ice cream tattoo to his face.

It's amazing the ways the rich and famous find out way to stay out of prison with the lindsay Lohan and Alexis Neiers it's "I need treatment" because I can't control myself and for this guy it's "I not mental" enough to go to prison, any guess what is next.

Who is this guy and who the hell cares about him?? By TMZ putting this up he continues to get his "fame". Leave it alone and he WILL disappear - no more publicity - no more Guccie Mane - sounds like a dog problem.

Well, guess any dude that's worn a gold Bart Simpson chain around his neck, I'd definitely have to wonder about his mental faculties...

Sad to say that it sounds like Gucci has been watching too much Law & Order and is just repeating stuff he heard on television. This would almost be hysterical if it wasn't so pathetic. Oh well, whatever it takes to stay out of the big house, huh Gucci? Man up and take your punishment like Weezy; nobody's gonna buy that defense. Save your money, do the time.

Did you say that Gucci is educated??? Are you serious??? Cause according to the court papers he is too stupid to be in court!!! Those are from his and his lawyers mouth! He will not get out and if he does he is just dumb enough to go back.

I really do think he is crazy. If you research some of the stuff he has been accused of doing in the past 5 years - Murder, assault, driving on the wrong side of the road, thats the stuff they caught up with him on.

Allegedly, he had a mental break down last year while promoting his album. No one did anything to help him - 6 months later - wellllll......

Someone named their child Radric?! Lord have mercy. Sounds like Scooby Doo or Astro trying to pronounce Frederick.
