The 18-year old woman that was kicked, Miranda Brown, admitted to grabbing at Gates’ feet before she was kicked, but still affirmed the rapper overreacted.
Body guards present testified that there were several people there to keep control of the crowd; several people were grabbing at his legs; and Gates had room to move back if he didn’t want to be touched.
