In a hearing Gates did admit to kicking the fan and during the trial the fan admitted to pulling his pants. She also shared that they grabbed at his pants a couple times and were not the only ones. After one day of testimony, Gates was convicted of battery and sentenced to 180 days in Polk County jail.
