Kevin Gates almost saw the light when he was about to be released from jail today. The rapper, who already served five months behind bars, had been sentenced for kicking a woman in the face at a Florida show. He did his time and just when he was about to experience the sweet feeling of freedom, authorities found an outstanding weapons-related warrant on him. According to AllHipHop, he had to return to the Polk County Jail. Such a shame.

Gates is scheduled for a hearing later today. The details of the case remain unclear, but we’ll keep you updated as more news surfaces.
