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.
From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album
Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.
Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.
“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!
But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.
Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?
