The Cook County Sheriff’s Department says his next court date is scheduled for April 3 and he is being held without bond.
On March 24 in Polk County, Florida, Gates waived extradition and accepted the transfer without asking for a new hearing.

Gates was released from Polk County at 4 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
Gates tried to get the kicking case dropped after claiming Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” defense, saying the fan kept grabbing at him.
