Ain't that a kick in the head…
Things were looking up for Kevin Gates, as the rapper had completed his 180-day prison sentence on Friday.
After being sentenced for 6 months in jail for round-house kicking a female fan at a Florida show, the 2 Phones performer was scheduled to be released a month early.
But just as he started tasting the sweet smell of freedom, Gates was sent directly back behind bars!
As he was being processed out of jail, officials found an out-of-state warrant which cites an outstanding weapons charge in Illinois.
The 31-year-old was immediately arrested again and is currently being held in Florida's Polk County Jail.
According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Gates is waiting to be extradited to Illinois' Cook County, where the charges originated.
Damn… so close, but so far!
