Kevin GatesÂ is gonna do time for the crime of unloading a brutal kick on one of his fans … after she tugged at his shorts.
The rapper was found guilty of battery in the 2015 incident during a Florida club gig. The judge sentenced him to 180 days in Polk County Jail, and he was immediately taken into custody.
The video of the kick, which TMZ first posted, made it pretty clear Gates severely overreacted to the woman reaching for him from the front row, and the judge and jury agreed.
