Florida Arrest Warrant Awaits Chief Keef for Missing Court Date



Chief Keef’s legal woes continue to mount.

The Interscope artist was recently served an arrest warrant for failure to make a court appearance in Florida, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Chief Keef, born Keith Cozart, was set to appear before Judge Orlando Presscott on Jan. 23 in Miami for being in possession of marijuana.

Chief Keef reportedly was arrested Aug. 17 in Miami Beach after police found the “Roun Da Rosey” rapper sitting in a stolen vehicle and possessing cannabis. Keef was in the city celebrating his birthday when he was nabbed.

But Keef has good reason for missing the court date. He was serving 60 days in juvenile detention in Chicago for violating terms of his probation.

Chief Keef was briefly jailed Monday on a misdemeanor trespassing charge only minutes after leaving a court hearing for a speeding case, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sosa’s attorney, Leah Starkman, told the Tribune she didn’t know the full details of the Interscope artist’s arrest, but is being held in a Chicago jailhouse.

It was later learned the rapper was charged with criminally trespassing at his former home in the Parkway Gardens apartment complex on the South Side, according to the Tribune.

Chief Keef’s arrest came following a court appearance at Skokie courthouse where he pleaded guilty to speeding.

Wearing a black t-shirt, plaid shorts, sneakers and a gold chain, the 17-year-old rapper was fined $531, placed on probation for 18 months, ordered to perform 60 hours community service, undergo random drug testing and complete eight hours of traffic school.

It could have been worse for the O’ Block rapper who was charged with a Class A misdemeanor.

Chief Keef, born Keith Cozart, could have been fined $2,500 and sentenced a year in prison.

Cook County Circuit Judge Earl Hoffenberg scolded the Interscope artist for his reckless behavior.

“You think you’re invincible, and you’re certainly not,” Cook County Circuit Court Judge Earl Hoffenberg, according to the Tribune. “Violate (conditions of the plea agreement) and you’ll find out you’re not. … I sure hope I don’t see you again, because if I do you better be ready to go to jail.”

Dashcam footage of rapper Chief Keef’s speeding arrest hit the net shortly after his arrest. Sosa was caught “lacking” in traffic after Northfield Police clocked him driving 110 mph on the Edens Expressway in a 55 mph zone. Keef’s arrest came following a performance in Davenport, Iowa.

In the video, a very respectful Chief Keef answers and follows the orders of Northfield Police. Once out of his BMW X6 M, Keef is placed in handcuffs and asked a series of questions. Police learn that the young rapper had $8000 in his pockets after being asked how much money was on.

A very comical response from Chief Keef comes towards the end of video when an officer shows him how fast he was going on the speedometer.

“You see that on the dash board up here. The two numbers… well actually the one number… the 110, that’s you okay. That’s how fast you were going,” said the officer.

“That’s a fast car, that’s why I bought it,” said Chief Keef.
