ATLANTA -- Georgia rapper Gucci Mane has been denied bond on charges stemming from an alleged assault at a downtown Atlanta nightclub.

A fan accused the rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, of smashing a champagne bottle over his head in the club's V.I.P. area March 16. The man, who is a Fort Hood soldier, said he was trying to take a picture with Davis when the incident unfolded. The injured man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and said he had to get 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 told WSB-TV 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.
