Gucci Mane’s artist Foogiano was sentenced to five years behind bars after burning off his ankle bracelet while out on bail.
In March, Foogiano posted his $50,000 bail following a previous arrest in December for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was required to wear it as part of his bail requirements but he burned it off and threw the tracker out on the side of a highway in Barrow County.
Foogiano didn’t charge his ankle monitor and it went dead. He was untraceable for several hours. The ankle monitor was charged later that day but officers received an alert that the ankle monitor was being tampered with. That day Foogiano was nowhere in sight.

Music executive Boomman announced the news.
“Green County Just Gave @FoogianoDaMayor 5 years for cutting an ankle monitor for a gun charge that wasn’t his and was claimed by some one else this is beyond crazy,” he wrote in the tweet. “We have to do something about this!”
