Chief Keef taken into custody for violating probation

JAILED: Chief Keef

CHICAGO RAPPER Chief Keef was taken into custody yesterday (Jan 16) after a judge ruled that he violated his probation.

According to the Chicago Sun Times Judge Carl Anthony Walker concluded that 17-year-old hip hop star showed “willful disregard” to the terms of his probation stemming from a 2012 gun charge.

The Love Sosa hit-maker was reprimanded for a video interview he did with popular entertainment website Pitchfork in which he’s seen holding a gun at a New York City gun range.

The teen was put on probation and house arrested last year after he was convicted of pointing a weapon at a police officer.

He is currently being held in a Cook County jail to await a sentencing hearing on Thursday (Jan. 17).
