The incident occurred at a recent concert in Florida.

Kevin Gates has been charged with simple battery after “deliberately” kicking an 18-year-old woman during a show in Florida, Lakeland Police Department told Billboard.

Police claim the Baton Rouge rapper “turned and deliberately kicked [18-year-old Miranda] Dixon in the stomach/chest area” after she touched his leg during a performance on Friday. Footage of the incident has since surfaced online.

The kick allegedly knocked Dixon back into the crowd and “caused her to lose consciousness for a brief period of time,” according to the press release. A police report on the incident indicates Dixon’s intention to pursue charges against Gates. Representatives for the 29-year-old are yet to comment. [via Billboard]
