Today, Kevin Gates finished his six-month sentence for kicking a teenaged fan at a 2015 Florida show. However, upon leaving jail, authorities discovered an outstanding felony warrant from a weapons charge in Illinois. Gates was arrested again, and is currently awaiting a court hearing. He’s currently being held in Florida’s Polk County Jail and is due to be extradited to Illinois’ Cook County, according to The Fader.
