In early January, Hamilton was reportedly placed under medical watch.
Hamilton is still in Cleveland county jail for a felony assault charge from last month, but today (January 4) the troubled rapper was in court, where he was referred to a psychiatric clinic. A clerk for the Cayuga County Court of Common Pleas confirmed with XXLMag.com that Hamilton will be evaluated by the court's psychiatric facility to see if he is competent to stand trial in the case. He will not receive another court date until the report comes back. The clerk says that usually doesn't come for a couple of weeks. (XXL Mag)
Initial information on Hamilton's December 10th arrest emerged a few weeks ago.
Where is Charles Hamilton? Well, he was arrested last week in Ohio for assault. Details are sketchy, but he allegedly was causing a disturbance at various bars.

The rapper made headlines after checking into a New York mental hospital last summer.
"Basically my stay here [NY Presbyterian Mental Hospital] is like identical to my stay in the industry. As far as being the new guy in here having to deal with politics & people trying to control you. The critics would have to be the doctors and the rounds [medicine guys]. So you can say this is like an experiment to see if the industry is really like an asylum or if I was the one bugging. Some say the Industry is like High School but it's just like a [mental hospital]." (Bossip)
