Charles Hamilton Under Mental Evaluation
As if last year wasn't bad enough for rapper Charles Hamilton, the new year hasn't gotten off to a good start either.
Already in Cleveland county jail for a December 2010 felony assault charge, today (January 4) the troubled rapper was in court, where his mental health was questioned and he was referred to a psychiatric clinic.
According to a clerk for the Cayuga County Court of Common Pleas, Hamilton will be evaluated by the court's psychiatric facility to see if he is competent to stand trial in the case. H
e will not appear in court again until his mental health is evaluated.
As previously reported, Hamilton was arrested on Friday, December 10 in downtown Cleveland for assaulting two police officers and resisting arrest.
This isn't the first time the Cleveland rapper's sanity has been in question.
In 2010, Hamilton was treated at a mental health hospital.
Later in the year, the rapper was taped dancing with a wino on a street corner and rapping in a subway.
Coincidentally Atlanta rapper, Gucci Mane was also recently ordered to a mental treatment facility for 30 days, to see if he is competent to stand trial in his probation violation case.
