Chief Keef Taken Into Custody For Probation Violation

Looks like the Chief Sosa show will come to a halt for a bit. News just broke that the young front man of Chicago rap has been arrested for his probation violation. Here’s the latest on his case:

Chicago rapper Chief Keef was jailed Tuesday after a judge found he violated probation.Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, appeared in Cook County juvenile court. Cozart, 17, is on probation for pointing a gun at Chicago Police officers.
Judge Carl Anthony Walker found Cozart showed a “willful disregard” of the court. He’s being held until Thursday when the judge will hold a sentencing hearing.
Prosecutors said he violated his probation in June when he visited a gun range in New York. He was prohibited by the judge from having contact with firearms. His attorney Dennis Berkson argued Cozart fired a rifle on private property as part of a promotional video. He said that didn’t violate the spirit of the judge’s order.
But Walker said it was no different than if Cozart handled a gun in a home. In that situation, he would have violated Cozart’s parole, the judge said.
