Details have emerged in Chief Keef’s arrest in December 2011 stemming from an incident where he pointed a handgun at officers.
According to DNAInfo.com, Keef left his grandmother’s home holding a coat over his hands in front of his waistband. A policeman stopped to question the rapper, who dropped the coat, flashed a blue-steel handgun and ran away.
Officers chased then 16-year-old Keef, who turned around several times and pointed the gun at them. The policemen “discharged their weapons,” but missed. They caught him a half-block later and recovered the pistol, which was loaded.
Keef was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was also given a misdemeanor charge for resisting arrest.
The “I Don’t Like” rapper will return to court later this month for a probation violation hearing for conducting an interview at a gun range and failing to complete his GED before deadline. If he in fact violated his probation, it is unclear how much time the 17-year-old would serve. In some cases, underage felons are detained with adults at Cook County jail.
