Chicago rapper Chief Keef was taken into custody on Tuesday after a judge ruled that the 17-year-old had violated his probation.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the rapper was handcuffed and taken out of court during a probation hearing on Tuesday. Keef is being held until a sentencing hearing on Thursday.
Chief Keef was reportedly sentenced to 18 months probation in January 2012 for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer. Judge Carl Anthony Walker ruled that Cozart violated his probation, which barred him from coming into contact with any firearms, by visiting a gun range in New York last June. The visit was part of a promotional video for Pitchfork.com; the video has since been removed.
Shortly after news broke of the rapper’s arrest, #FreeSosa became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter.
