A rundown of what allegedly took place has also been revealed.
Mane, real name Radric Davis, was behind the wheel of his white Hummer around 11:30 a.m. driving “at a high rate of speed,” per an off-duty cop. The officer quickly dispatched on-duty officers, who tracked the SUV to a nearby auto body shop, where Mane was involved in a heated argument. When cops attempted to break it up, Mane allegedly struck the other man, whose name was not released. Mane refused to submit to police, according to the incident report, and wound up on the receiving end of some pepper spray. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital to be checked out before he was checked in to Fulton County Jail. (E! Online)
