Leave it to Chief Keef to get arrested right after appearing in court.
The 17-year-old rapper, who has been arrested several times in recent months, had just appeared in court early Monday morning (Jun 17) when he was placed in handcuffs at around 12:30 p.m local time by Chicago police officers who had driven over 20 miles away from the Southside to arrest him on a month-old trespassing complaint.
His court appearance Monday stemmed from him being arrested for speeding earlier this month in Northfield, Ill. According to the Chicago Tribune, in court, Keef — reportedly dressed in a black T-shirt, plaid shorts and sneakers, and wearing a gold chain — pleaded guilty to driving 110 mph in a 55 mph zone and was reprimanded by the judge, who ordered him not to drive.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was fined $531, given 18 months probation and ordered to perform 60 hours of community service. He was also ordered to undergo random drug testing and is required to complete at least 8 hours of traffic school.
The judge made it a point to note that if he sees him again, off to jail he goes.
“You think you’re invincible, and you’re certainly not,” Cook County Circuit Court Judge Earl Hoffenberg reportedly said to Cozart. “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.”
Judge Hoffenberg added, “If I were you, I wouldn’t take this deal if you can’t follow these conditions. I’m really not sympathetic to people who don’t listen to me.”
If that wasn’t enough, as Cozart waited outside the courtroom (before he was arrested), he was served a paternity suit, his second in the past year. His first one, which is still pending, was filed last December by another girl who is in middle school.
