From the AJC.com:

Gucci Mane was ordered  released from Fulton County Jail Wednesday after prosecutors announced they would not pursue the pending multiple traffic charges or the obstruction allegation.

It was announced during a first appearance court hearing Wednesday morning the case was being dropped “for want of prosecution.” The judge told Gucci, whose real name is Radric Davis, that the charges could be refiled.

Gucci was jailed Tuesday, and held overnight, on charges of damage to government property, obstruction, driving without a license, reckless driving, running a red light or stop sign, failure to maintain a lane and driving on the wrong side of the road.

He was arrested Tuesday morning after an off-duty police officer reported seeing a white Hummer being driven recklessly on Northside Drive. Dispatched officers saw the Hummer outside an auto body shop and two men were  arguing.

The police officers tried to intercede but Gucci ignored them and hit the man, whose name was not released, according to a report of the incident. The officer used pepper spray to subdue Gucci.

Gucci’s arrest comes just a few months after he was he was released from the Fulton County Jail, where he spent several months for violating parole. Records show he has been in the Fulton County Jail at least five times since 2005 on drug, aggravated assault or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges.

When he walked out of the jail during the early morning hours on May 12, Gucci told reporters, “I have made some mistakes in my life that have hurt a lot of people who care about me.

“I have worked very hard to get past them, but those mistakes have brought me to where I am today, and they will not be repeated. These past six months have been a difficult time, but fortunately I have learned a great deal from my experience. I was able to do a great deal of soul searching; I am coming out with a new attitude towards life.”

While he was in jail, he missed the release of his album, “The State vs. Radric Davis,” which features Keyshia Cole, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Keri Hilson and Usher.
