Dashcam video shows arrest of Chief Keef

Chief Keef can’t drive 55 – but he can drive twice that along Chicago-area expressways.

“He was clocked at 110 in a 55 mph zone,” Monday at 3:45 am along the Edens Expressway, according to Northfield Deputy Police Chief Claude Casaletto.

Dashcam video shows as police conducted a pat-down, they discover a bundle in the 17-year-old’s pocket: an $8000 roll of cash..

Police reports list Chief Keef’s real name “Keith F. Cozart” and his occupation as “Hip Hop Superstar.”

Cozart was taken into custody and charged with two misdemeanors:  excessive speeding and unlawful number of passengers.

This arrest comes on the heels of his arrest last week at the Le Meridien Atlanta Perimeter, after hotel security alerted police about illegal drug activity in his hotel room.

    This criminal doesn't know how to live within the law and needs to stay in jail…He's been arrested for Meth production/distribution, pointing a gun at a cop, parole violation (possessing a weapon while on the gun charge parole), a week ago he was arrested for smoking weed in a hotel in Atlanta, and now 110 mph on the Edens…how many "regular" folks would get that many bites at the apple before being put away for a good long time?

    110 in a 55 is reckless disregard for the lives of others. He should be sent back into juvie. After he turns 18 in August they can send him to Stateville for his next offense.

    I would think that reckless endangerment would be the suitable charge. He's just as dangerous as a drunk driver, if not more so since drunk drivers usually don't drive at a high rate of speed. Forget about throwing the book at him, just knock him upside the head with it a few times

    hes living his life how he wants…and going 110 is more dangerous than a drunk driver? i forgot that going 55mph cant be fatal….too many idiots commenting on this. give the KID a break, you all act like he grew up in a normal environment, when you deal with crack heads, dope fiends, killers, rapists, robbers, everyday im sure that you start to act different and have a different attitude on life. he earns his money, spends it how he wants, big deal if he goes 110mph on a highway, none of you guys done that before?…no sense even continuing to comment on this video

      You are an idiot……….. If my family of 5 would have been taken out by this thug because of his carelessness, would you feel the same? You get voted for having the most moronic statement yet.
