A new prosecutor was assigned to a case involving rapper Kevin Gates in Lakeland, Florida, where he is accused of battery, after kicking a female fan during a performance.
According to the Lakeland Ledger, state prosecutors replaced Assistant State Attorney Brittany Shell, who was booted from the case after she asked Kevin Gates for an autograph following a motion to dismiss the trial.
Gates was performing at Rumors Niteclub, when a 19-year-old woman named Miranda Dixon tugged on the rapper's shorts during a performance.
Kevin Gates wasn't in the mood for being accosted by the fan, so he kicked the woman with such force, that it caused bruising to her stomach, according to reports.
