It appears Chief Keef’s legal troubles are following him into 2017, as the rapper has reportedly been arrested for the second time this year. Footage of Chief Keef being restrained by Florida Police surfaced Saturday night, with multiple sources reporting the Glo Gang leader was briefly detained.

“Police put handcuffs on the hip-hop star after Chief Keef's friend in the passenger seat, allegedly hopped out of the bright green vehicle and started talking to people in another car,” wrote Cheyenne Roundtree in a report for The Daily Mail. “Miami Beach officials saw the interaction and believed it was a drug transaction and detained five people for questioning. The rapper has not been officially booked or charged yet.”

The corresponding video seems to corroborate the report, and it also appears the 21-year-old was subsequently released on bond. He re-appears with police shortly after the initial incident. 


While both TMZ and The Daily Mail are reporting the arrest was in conjunction with a possible drug transaction, this has not been officially confirmed.

On Jan. 27, Chief Keef was arrested for his possible connection with a home invasion robbery his former producer, Ramsay Tha Great. According to the LAPD, Darron Rose was also arrested as a potential suspect in the January robbery. Chief Keef and Rose were respectively being held on $500,000 and $250,000 bail at the time.
