HipHollywood can confirm that Kevin Jerome Gilyard aka Kevin Gates has been charged with simple battery after kicking fan, Miranda Dixon, in the “stomach/chest area” during his show at Rumors Nightclub in Lakeland, Florida.

In a video that was posted on WorldstarHipHop last week, Gates can be seen striking Dixon with his foot after she tried to touch the rapper’s pant leg while he was performing. “The kick was with such force that it pushed Dixon back into the crowd and caused her to lose consciousness for a brief period of time,” the police department tells HipHollywood.

According to a statement by Lakeland PD, “Gilyard’s action of kicking Dixon in the stomach was not as a result of self-defense and did rise to the level of a criminal offense.”

The incident, which took place on August 28, was captured by cellphone video and the venue’s surveillance cameras and will be used for further investigation.

We are told that the complaint affidavit for simple battery has been forwarded to the State Attorney’s Office and they will decide on how to proceed.
