Kevin Gates Arrested on the Same Day He was Set to be Released from Prison

Well this has got to be the most craziest thing to happen since Craig got fired on his day off. Today, Louisiana-based rapper Kevin Gates was scheduled to be released from jail, after he just completed his sentence for kicking a woman in the face at a Florida show back in 2015.

But that celebration was cut short…very short, as he was being processed out of jail authorities found an outstanding weapons-related warrant…from 2013.

Kevin was sentenced in October and was ordered to serve 180 days in Polk County Jail, located in Bartow, Flordia.

Now, while I am not the biggest fan of Kevin Gates, I do feel like this should have been taken care of YEARS ago. When he was booked, I’m sure they were able to notice the warrant and they could have simply factored the time with the kicking charge.

There is currently no word to what will happen, but a hearing is scheduled for later this evening.
