Chief Keef Taken into Custody for Violating Parole with 'Pitchfork' Video
As the Chicago Sun-Times [via Complex] reports, the 17-year-old appeared in Cook County juvenile court. He was accused of visiting a gun range in New York this past June in a video for Pitchfork, despite being forbidden from having any contact with firearms.
The rapper's lawyer, Dennis Berkson, said that Cozart fired a rifle as part of a promotional video for the website. This apparently didn't sway Judge Carl Anthony Walker, who found that Keef exhibited a "willful disregard" of the court. Cozart will be held until his sentencing hearing on Thursday (January 17).
The 17-year-old was placed on probation after a 2011 incident in which he pointed a gun at police officers. In 2012, he was investigated by Chicago police for a possible role in the drive-by shooting of a rival rapper Joseph "JoJo" Coleman.
Chief Keef's debut album, Finally Rich, came out back in December.
