Reports of Chief Keef posting the $500,000 bail have been confirmed Saturday by Complex. The Los Angeles County Sheriffs' online database confirms Keef, whose government name is Keith Cozart, was booked by the Van Nuys, California division of the LAPD at approximately 4:30 p.m Thursday. Keef posted the $500,000 bail and was released at approximately 11:33 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27.
Less than one week after producer Ramsay tha Great named Chief Keef as a perpetrator and uploaded pictures of himself bruised and bloodied as the result of a home invasion robbery, Keef was arrested as a possible suspect.
Last week, Ramsay the Great posted an Instagram photo of himself in a neckbrace with a swollen right eye and multiple bruises.
Ramsay captioned the photo with the following:
“Now if I was a celebrity I wouldn't come personally jump a person with you five friends and a Ak 47 [sic] that's just dumb your famous ......... now I'm taking everything from you .U really just fucked up dude coming to my house with your phone in your pocket with the location on........ yea I'm pressing charges on yo ass. You a fucking low life mf niggas out here tryna do positive shit and you still on some goofy Chicago shit . We'll see u in court.”
The LAPD has since confirmed the arrests were related to a Jan. 19 robbery in the San Fernando Valley area, which matches with the timeline of Ramsay’s allegations. However, the name of the alleged victim has not been released. Chief Keef's next scheduled court appearance is Feb. 24, 2017.
“It’s Chief Keef’s fault,” Ramsay said in a subsequent Instagram post. “If he didn’t do this to me, he didn’t run in my crib like that, if he didn’t jump me, punch me in the face, rob me, home invasion, he wouldn’t be going to jail.”
