Gucci Mane has been denied bond on charges stemming from a fan's accusation that the rapper hit him in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub.

A fan says the rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, hit him in the club's V.I.P. area on March 16 while he tried to take a picture with Gucci Mane. The fan, James Lettley, says he needed 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, tells WSB-TV that Davis' criminal history made it difficult for a judge to set bond. He said, "Mr. Davis has a history, we're not going to skirt that issue, and that history made it difficult for him to get bond today. Fulton County jail records show Davis has been arrested 10 times since 2005.

Davis appears in the new movie, "Spring Breakers," alongside James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.
