Charles Hamilton - Rapper Hamilton To Undergo Mental Evaluation

Troubled rapper CHARLES HAMILTON has been ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is fit to stand trial for felony assault.
The rising hip-hop star was arrested last month (Dec10) after allegedly striking a police officer who had been investigating reports of a number of bar disturbances, said to involve Hamilton, in Cleveland, Ohio.
He was released on bail and returned to Cayuga County Court on Tuesday (04Jan11), when a judge sent him for a mental assessment, according to XXLMag.com.
The results of the test, expected within a few weeks, will help the judge decide whether he is mentally stable to face trial.
Hamilton has a history of psychiatric concerns - he checked himself into a mental institution in New York in July (10) in a bid to deal with the stress of working in the music industry. He underwent a week's worth of treatment before being released.
