Chief Keef’s Camp Releases Statement On Arrest, Claims Excessive Force

Andrew Barber


Earlier today, Chicago Police arrested Chief Keef as he left the courthouse in Skokie, IL where he was fighting a traffic case. We now know that Keef was arrested on a trespassing charge, and reps from his camp have sent over the following press release, stating the CPD used excessive force during the arrest.

We’ve also been told that various news crews are on hand at the station awaiting Keef’s release.


Keith Cozart was arrested this afternoon around 12:30 P.M. after leaving traffic court. The 17 year old rap phenom, Chief Keef, road about 4 blocks from the Skokie Courthouse when his vehicle was pulled over. His manager Rovaun “Dro” Manuel was driving when two unmarked cars cut the vehicle off. Present were Chief Keef, Dro, Mike Starkman, and Ballout. Mike Starkman says six officers armed with AK47’s hopped out of the cars to extract a compliant Cozart. Keith Cozart was arrested on charges of misdemeanor trespassing and taken from Skokie back to the south side to be processed. It is not normal practice for police to come from the south side armed with AK47’s to arrest a person on misdemeanor trespassing charges, but clearly Chief Keef is a special young man that garners special treatment from the Chicago Police Department. Hours later, amidst jovial officers with no sense of urgency, Chief Keef is still being held waiting to be processed. So special they just wanted to keep him around for a little while longer.

Update: Keef is a free man

    How is that excessive force? It’s a bit much for one dumb ass kid but excessive force sounds like the managment are making it out to be more than what it was.

  • whocares

    Based on the court order given by the court, his stupid ass will violate without 1-2
    Months. He cant drive for almost 2 years, 60 hours of swap, traffic classes, and random drops he’s done.

      Why in the world would his lawyer or any adult around him take a deal where this kid gets drug tested? The prosecution and Judge knew what they were doing the judge even said if you can’t comply you shouldn’t take the deal, WTF!

  • ijuinji

    Excessive force? Keef’s lawyer is reaching. haha

    It’s too bad that this kid has no one around him with any sense that he will listen to. The plea deal that included not using drugs will have him back in jail in a week or two, and he really needs to leave the state of Illinois, Cook County and the CPD are on a mission to put this kid away for bringing attention to violence in the city and their inability to do anything about it.
