Walter Cronkite dies on Friday, and then by Sunday we're all getting our news from an uniformed 18-year-old typing away on his Sidekick.

That's pretty much what happened this weekend when Soulja Boy announced via Twitter that his much-incarcerated homie Gucci Mane was going back to the slammer.

Just woke up to some bullshit... my nigga Gucci back in jail.. Free Gucci...

Word on the street (er, the blogs) was that Gucci had violated his probation with some cloudy piss, and within hours "Free Gucci" was a trending topic on Twitter. (Leaving plenty of folks wondering where to pick up their gratis clutches.)

But not only were there no free bags, but Gucci was not locked up, at least according to his lawyer.

"Gucci Mane is not incarcerated. His attorneys are addressing all pending issues through the courts," his attorney Dwight Thomas said in a statement.

Who knows if he'll be headed back at some point, but for now let's all just take a deep breath and pledge to stop trusting news scoops from someone with a song called "Booty Meat."
