Chief Keef has found himself in even more legal trouble. According to TMZ, after failing to appear in court in Miami on Tuesday for an arraignment, a judge issued a warrant for the Chicago rapper’s arrest.
This latest court setback stems from an incident that took place near the beginning of April. Keef was driving around South Florida in a two-door McClaren. At one point he stopped at a red light, where the passenger in his vehicle hopped out and jogged toward an Altima parked behind them and handed what police observed to be, “a bag with a green leafy substance.”
Having spotted the exchange, Offices stopped McElrath and pointed a taser at him. Another policeman approached Keef and drew his taser as well because, as he explained in his report, Keef “was moving his hands around in the vehicle.” After Police examined the rapper and the contents of his vehicle they noticed that, he had “bloodshot, watery, droopy eyes” and “a cup filled with a syrupy liquid known as sizzurp, which is also known as ‘lean’ or ‘purple drank.”
Keef was charged with a DUI after he “did not perform to standard,” on his field sobriety test. According to the report he told the officers, “It’s OK, when you find weed in my urine, I’ll just get my attorney to get my marijuana card.” He added, “You’ll find weed in me.”
In a statement given to Billboard, FOTV Media/Hologram USA CEO, Alki David said, “Keef’s crack legal team will work this out. In the meantime Hologram USA is prepared to beam him in wherever he needs to go. Boldly, like no man has gone before.”
