Another arrest for Chief Keef: DUI charges in Highland Park
By Lisa Black, Tribune reporter
Highland Park police arrested the rapper Chief Keef and charged him with driving under the influence, just weeks after he completed court-ordered drug rehab, according to Lake County court records.
Cozart, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was arrested on March 5 and posted a $300 bond the next day and was released from custody, according to the court record. He recently completed a 90-day drug rehabilitation program in California, after testing positive for drugs.
Arraignment is scheduled April 11.
During a December court hearing, Judge Earl Hoffenberg told Cozart’s three lawyers during a hearing at the Skokie courthouse that he would send the rapper to jail if he fails another drug test.
