Gucci is definitely no stranger to run ins with the law, but some people were shocked when his lawyer asked that he be treated as mentally incompetent.  Read below why this might not be as crazy as it sounds.

Gucci Mane has been ordered to undergo psychiatric tests, following an Atlanta court appearance on a charge he violated terms of his probation.

Davis' attorney, Michael Holmes, filed a special plea of mental incompetency on behalf of Davis, who has battled drug problems in the past.

The rapper was sent to Anchor Hospital, a 111-bed psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment facility in Atlanta.

Records show Davis has been in the Fulton County Jail at least five times since 2005 on drug, aggravated assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges.

So the facility that Gucci is being sent to is also a chemical dependency clinic.  That makes way more sense than Gucci pleading insanity.  Things are not looking good for Gucci since he has a history of violating probation.  All we can do is hope Gucci will use this as an opportunity to clean himself up.  On a side note, I'm going to slap the first person who screams "Free Gucci"!
