A Lake County judge agreed to schedule a court hearing around rapper Chief Keef’s tour schedule. Keef, 18, must appear back in court on August 22 for his next hearing. He was previously given permission to travel out of state.
Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, faces DUI charges stemming from a March traffic stop made by Highland Park police. He was initially stopped for an expired registration in the 2600 block of Skokie Valley Road, and subsequently submitted to field sobriety tests. Police allege that Keef showed signed of impairment from drugs and smelled the odor of burnt cannabis in his vehicle. Keef was also charged with driving on a suspended license and without valid insurance.
Since his arrest, he was evicted from the Highland Park home he was renting after the landlord complained to the Lake County Sheriff’s Department. He reportedly owed four months of rent.
