Back in 2015 Kevin Gates was caught on camera kicking a female who tugged at his pants during concert. According to the rapper, the young lady tried to grab at his genitals. A Polk County judge saw things differently and sentenced Gates to 180 days (6 months) in jail.
The girl that Gates kicked was 18 year old Miranda Dixon. She admits to tugging on his pants during the concert saying, “I was trying to get his attention for my friend.” She says the entire front row was grabbing at Gates’ pants. When Dixon grabbed the rapper the first time, he kept performing. She said the second time Dixon grabbed him, he ran and kicked her with force, and her friend fell back into her.
“She told me that she was excited to see him and next thing she knows she was kicked in the chest and she was passed out,” her mother said.
