Is Chief Keef In Jail For DUI Case?

A message surfaced on Chief Keef’s Twitter account that has many pondering whether the Interscope artist’s freedom is in jeopardy.

“#CampaignFreeSosa,” a message on his account read.

We reported in Late August a $50,000 bench warrant was issued for the embattled South Side Chicago native’s arrest after he missed a scheduled court appearance for his DUI case.

Chief John Byrne of the Lake County Sheriff’s Department told the Chicago Sun Times said he was trying to arrange the surrender Sosa’s surrender through his attorney.

Keef pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence of marijuana April 11.

The South Side Chicago rap star was arrested in Highland Park, IL in the early morning of March 5, according to the Tribune.

Police reportedly stopped Sosa for driving his 2010 Jeep Cherokee with expired tags. Police smelled marijuana upon approaching the “Hate Being Sober” rapper’s vehicle.

Sosa reportedly failed a sobriety test and was later placed under arrest for DUI, driving on a suspended license and no proof of insurance.

He was reportedly released after posting $300 bail.

Sosa posted his DUI mugshot to IG with a caption, reading, “High as f*ck.” The caption included a “smiley face” emoticon.

Sosa’s latest arrest comes following a court-ordered 90 days in a California drug rehabilitation center.

In October 2013, a judge ordered Chief Keef to serve 20 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation after testing positive for marijuana, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Sosa was released a few days later for good behavior.

But Keef soon found himself back in jail Nov. 7 after failing yet another drug test. He was subsequently ordered to undergo 90 days of drug treatment.

Sosa’s legal woes stemmed from a June 2013 speeding ticket.

Northfield Police clocked Sosa driving 110 mph on the Edens Expressway. Keef’s arrest came following a performance in Davenport, Iowa.

Chief Keef plead guilty to the charge and was fined $531, placed on probation for 18 months, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service, undergo random drug testing and complete eight hours of traffic school.
