Kevin Gates Will Not Be Released From Jail Today
Kevin Gates is being held in jail on an out of state warrant.
Disappointing news for Kevin Gates fans… After serving 180 days behind bars for kicking a female fan in the chest, Gates was scheduled to be released from Polk County Jail in Bartow, Florida today. Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to planned.
It appears that the “I Don’t Get Tired” rapper won’t be released just yet, due to an outstanding warrant stemming from a felony weapons charge in Illinois. This afternoon, Gates was extradited from Polk County to Cook County Jail where he faced the charges during an hearing.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Gates has a lengthy rap sheet – including stints in prison and several gun charges from 2013 in Illinois, including aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
Gates is scheduled to perform at “Hippie Hill” on April 20th.
Stayed tuned for updates…
