Rapper Gucci Mane has had some trouble with the law lately, which according to Wikipedia, is primarily due to various probation violations. The star was arrested last November after police discovered Gucci driving on the wrong side of the road, and needed to use pepper spray to subdue the musician. That was yet another probation violation, and Gucci Mane was taken into custody earlier this month to stand trial.
Here’s where it gets a little interesting. While appearing in court, the records from the Fulton County Superior Court Clerks office indicate that the rapper filed a “special plea of mental incompetency” on December 27 2010, which indicates he is unable to “intelligently participate” in the revocation process [via MTV]. Rather than go to jail, Gucci Mane was sent to a mental health facility and was released Thursday.

Some people questioned whether or not the mental incompetency plea was just an attempt to avoid jail time. But insanity is obviously the only reason anyone would voluntarily permanently brand their FACE with an ice cream cone, even if their trademark is ‘Brrr.’
