Things continue to go downhill for Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane as he is now facing up to 20 years in prison on federal gun charges.
Last week it was reported, due to a federal indictment, Gucci was ordered to turn his guns in.
The indictment related to two prior arrests, the first was believed to be from assaulting a U.S. soldier, which turned out to be false, and the second was from September 14th, when Gucci was arrested in Atlanta on charges of disorderly conduct for threatening a police officer, possession of marijuana and carrying a concealed weapon.

According to CNN, on Tuesday, Gucci Mane was charged in federal court with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon after two September incidents in which he showed a gun and threatened police, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.
At the time of the initial report, Gucci was taken into custody after one of his friends waved down police for help as rapper was acting erratically. When he was approached by the police the rapper began “cursing and threatening them,” which caused them to take him into custody where they discovered a small amount of weed and a handgun on the rapper.
As noted above, Gucci Mane was eventually charged with carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
Now, it turns out there was another arrest in September, just two days prior to the one that was reported on Sept. 14th, as federal prosecutors state:
“On September 12, 2013, Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found in possession of a firearm. Then, just two days later, on September 14th, he again possessed a firearm different from the earlier gun. On both occasions, Davis displayed the loaded firearm, acted erratically, and made threats to individuals, including police and his attorney.”
As a result of the two gun charges, Gucci Mane is facing a $250,000 fine and up to 20-years in prison. 10-years for each charge.
