Chief Keef Taken Into Custody For Violating Probation

Chief Keef was incarcerated after a judge found him in violation of his probation.

Chief Keef was jailed earlier today after a judge found that he had violated his probation stemming from a 2011 incident where he pulled a gun on policemen.

According to Chicago Sun Times, the 17-year-old rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, went to Cook County juvenile court where Judge Carl Anthony Walker found him showing a "willful disregard" for the court. He will be held until Thursday when he will be sentenced.

The incarceration marks a victory for prosecutors who said that he violated his 18-month probation after conducting an interview at a gun range in New York last June. The incident went against judge's orders that he cannot have contact with firearms.

Keef most recently released his debut album Finally Rich, which debuted at No. 27 with 50,000 copies sold.

    Hopefully kid, u don't get the whole 18 months, but either way, use this as a learning lesson. Leave the nonsense behind after this. We'll blame it on youth and legally, its all juvie stuff (even though your dumbass messing with some serious stuff). Do not commit any crimes as an adult please. You have some cash, get rid of the young hot heads around you that think its cool to be a punk and live a clean life.

    DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHY HE WAS ON PROBATION ? I DO, HE DROVE PASS A POLICE CRUISER WITH A GUN POINTED OUT THE WINDOW AT THE COP. HE SHOULD STILL BE IN JUVIE TILL THIS VERY DAY BUT THEY LET HIM OFF EASY BECAUSE THEY SAW HE HAD BIG LABELS EYEING HIM FOR A DEAL. ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS JUST KEEP HIS IMAGE CLEAN, BUT THE MORON HAS BEEN SEEN HANDLING GUNS EVER SINCE HE GOT OFF HOUSE ARREST.

    there is no conspiracy against keef. Stupid people don't require an organized conspiracy. they will take a cab to the trap. all that fool had to do was sit in his momma's basement while he was on probation. It is funny that famewhoring for pitchfork got him into this mess. Only break he's getting is the sentence as a juvenile. maybe suge can meet him on his release date?!?
