Fake Shore Drive is reporting that Chief Keef has been arrested by Chicago city police on unknown charges.
The rapper was at traffic court in Skokie, Illinois, for his recent speeding arrest. After he was let off by the judge with a warning, Chicago police arrested the rapper on, as Fake Shore's Andrew Barber says, "unknown charges."
It's unclear what he's being charged with at this time; more information as the story develops.
UPDATE 2: One of Keef's managers, Peeda Pan, contacted us with this press release:
Keith Cozart was arrested this afternoon around 12:30 P.M. after leaving traffic court. The 17 year old rap phenom, Chief Keef, road about 4 blocks from the Skokie Courthouse when his vehicle was pulled over. His manager Rovaun “Dro” Manuel was driving when two unmarked cars cut the vehicle off. Present were Chief Keef, Dro, Mike Starkman, and Ballout. Mike Starkman says six officers armed with AK47’s hopped out of the cars to extract a compliant Cozart. Keith Cozart was arrested on charges of misdemeanor trespassing and taken from Skokie back to the south side to be processed. It is not normal practice for police to come from the south side armed with AK47’s to arrest a person on misdemeanor trespassing charges, but clearly Chief Keef is a special young man that garners special treatment from the Chicago Police Department. Hours later, amidst jovial officers with no sense of urgency, Chief Keef is still being held waiting to be processed. So special they just wanted to keep him around for a little while longer.
UPDATE: The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Keef was picked up on a trespassing charge.
The paper also had more information on his court appearance for speeding:
"You think you're invincible, and you're certainly not," said Cook County Circuit Court Judge Earl Hoffenberg. "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."
Under sentencing guidelines for the Class A misdemeanor, Cozart could have been sentenced to a year in prison and fined up to $2,500. But the judge fined him $531, put him on probation for 18 months, ordered him perform 60 hours community service, and undergo random drug testing. He must also complete eight hours of traffic school.
"If I were you, I wouldn't take this deal if you can't follow these conditions," Hoffenberg said.
"I'm really not sympathetic to people who don't listen to me," the judge added.
