Kevin Gates has been charged with simple battery after "deliberately" kicking an 18-year-old woman during a recent concert in Florida, the Lakeland Police Department tells Billboard. ABC Action News first reported the news.
According to police, Gates (real name Kevin Jerome Gilyard) "turned and deliberately kicked [18-year-old Miranda] Dixon in the stomach/chest area" after she touched his pant leg during a concert on Friday.
The kick allegedly knocked Dixon back into the crowd and "caused her to lose consciousness for a brief period of time," according to the press release. A police report on the incident indicates that Dixon wants to pursue charges against the 29-year-old rapper.
