Earlier today, Chicago rapper Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was taken into custody by police officials for violating his probation.
According to the Sun times (via Sandra Rose), Keef was on probation for pointing a gun at Chicago police officers in January 2012. Judge Carl Anthony Walker found that the rapper demonstrated a “willful disregard” of the court.
The judge ruled that Keef violated his probation for visiting a gun range in June during the filming of a promotional rap video, where his lawyer Dennis Berkson tried to argue in the rapper’s defense. (Judge wasn’t having it)
The young rapper is being held until his sentencing hearing on Thursday.
