It was last year that Kevin Gates kicked a female fan during one of his shows in Lakeland, Florida and it was Wednesday that the rapper was found guilty of battery. Gates has now been sentenced to 180 days in Polk County jail after testifying in front of a jury of six women who found him guilty.

The rapper stated that he kicked 18-year-old Miranda Dixon after she grabbed his legs multiple times and claimed that it was done out of self-defense. "I kicked them, I wanted them off me," he said, although Dixon claims different, and stated during the trial that she "was trying to get his attention for my friend."
