Gucci Mane is a free man today after being arrested yesterday under what many consider suspicious circumstances.

After appearing in court today (November 3rd), Gucci, real name Radric Davis, was ordered released from Fulton County Jail after prosecutors announced they would not pursue the pending multiple traffic charges or the obstruction allegation.
The case is apparently being dropped ?for want of prosecution.?? During this morning’s hearing, the judge set Gucci free but advised him that the charges could be refiled.
Gucci was jailed Tuesday, and held overnight, on charges of damage to government property, obstruction, driving without a license, reckless driving, running a red light or stop sign, failure to maintain a lane and driving on the wrong side of the road.
I personally thought it was strange that an “off duty” cop would follow Gucci and then call for back-up.? Note to cops, if you’re gonna put someone under surveillance at least have your all your ducks in a row before you arrest him.
And Gucci…. ummmm…. I think you should keep your nose clean for a lil while.
Tameka ‘Tiny” Cottle plead not guilty to one misdemeanor charge of possessing ecstasy.
Tiny entered the plea through her attorney yesterday in Beverly Hills.
As you know, Tiny and her hubby T.I. were arrested together in L.A. back in September [MUGSHOTS]. The D.A. elected not to prosecute T.I. after he received jail time for a probation violation stemming from the arrest.
T.I. turned himself in to an Arkansas facility yesterday (Nov. 1st) to begin serving his time and Tiny was by his side while her attorney was entering the plan.
Word is… Tiny could be facing up to a year behind bars. She’s due back in court on January 6.

Some words that have been spoken by Bishop Eddie Long are coming back to haunt him… in a big way!
Long’s controversial billboard asking drivers to “Love Live Lead” like him was the first under scrutiny and now his own words are creating a firestorm.
The ‘Bishop’ as he’s affectionately called by members of his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, once preached a sermon where he spoke an analogy between the word of God and “fresh sperm”.
The video of that sermon, delivered during the early days of Long’s ministry in the 1990s, has gone viral.? And now it’s being discussed in context of the four lawsuits that claim the 57-year-old Long used his spiritual authority to coerce four young men into sexual relationships with him.
“Bishop” has since denied the allegations but his own words speak volumes.

In light of recent news that Tameka “Tiny” Cottle will be facing charges in L.A. for drug possession, I posed the question on my twitter of who’s gonna stand up for Tiny since her hubby T.I. had everyone under the sun trying to keep him outta jail (again) and a “mystery” group of admirers even filed a motion on his behalf.

Well, contrary to popular belief, Tiny has at least ONE disgruntled admirer willing to fight for her freedom and he even wrote a letter to the LAPD begging for them to reconsider taking another one of our “Black People Royalty” to prison.
Dear LAPD , Los Angeles District Attorney and Whoever the hell else,
As I searched the blogs this weekend in hopes of finding some new Ashanti music I was shocked to see a headline that you would be charging my auntie in my head Tameka Cottle aka Tiny with possession of ecstasy.
I immediately in my keys the problem voice said “what? my shit must have a virus!” and refreshed my page. I couldn’t believe my eyes. You guys are really charging tiny!!
Now. What did tiny do to yall? So what she had a little ecstasy? Her man had just got outta jail for 11 months. Continue Reading…
Tameka “Tiny” Cottle is not being let off the hook for that September drug arrest in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, Tiny is being charged for her part in the situation.
L.A. County District Attorney has charged T.I.’s wife — Tameka Cottle — for possessing the drug ecstasy when the couple was arrested on Sunset Strip last month.
If convicted, Tameka could face up to a year behind bars.
As previously reported, the D.A. elected not to prosecute T.I. for charges stemming from the incident, noting that the rapper will already be serving time in Georgia for a probation violation stemming from the L.A. arrest.

T.I. is scheduled to turn himself in to an Arkansas miminum security facility to start serving his 11 month sentence on Monday (Nov. 1st). I wonder who’ll take care of all those kids while they’re both are in jail?
