Kevin Gates could be just days away from being release from jail after serving six months for for kicking a fan at one of his concerts.
Gates started serving his sentence in October last year, but new reports suggest that he is expected to walk out of jail on March 24, XXL reported. In October, Kevin Gates was found guilty on a charge of misdemeanor battery for kicking a female fan at his concert in Lakeland, Florida back in August. The incident was caught on video which shows the rapper getting into a melee with the fan at Rumors Nightclub.
The rapper claimed in court that he was standing his ground after the fan came at him first. Prosecutors asked a judge to sentence him to 60 days in jail, but the judge gave him a whopping 180 days. Kevin Gates wife was furious over the sentencing and went on a social media rant about the case claiming that the female fan was the one who instigate the fight.
“She claims she fainted, but yet she and her friend stayed at the club at the front of the stage even after this incident,” Dreka added. “She also acquired a civil attorney early on…what does that tell you? She also touched him FIRST (more than once) without his consent but yet he was the one sentenced to jail today for the same crime.”
