Chief Keef got into trouble in 2011 after pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer. The details of the arrest were exclusively reported Monday by DNAinfo.com Chicago.
Just before noon on Dec. 2, 2011, police responded to a call of shots fired in the 6100 block of South Indiana.
Officers spotted Chief Keef walking out the front door of his grandmother’s apartment building in the 6100 block of South Michigan, holding a coat over his hands that were in front of his waistband, according to police reports obtained by DNAinfo.com.
When a police officer tried to stop and question Chief Keef, the rapper dropped the coat, flashed a blue-steel handgun and sprinted through the vacant lot next door, according to police reports.
When officers gave chase, Chief Keef — who was 16 at the time — twice turned and pointed the pistol at the officers, according to the police report. The officers “discharged their weapons” but missed, according to the police account.
Chief Keef made it about a half-block before officers nabbed him in the alley of the 6100 block of South Indiana, according to the report.
One officer suffered bruises in the struggle to detain the rapper. Police recovered the pistol, which was loaded, according to reports.
Chief Keef was charged with four felonies — three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He also was hit with a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. When he was collared, police noted that 16-year old had two tattoos — “Fast” on his right hand and “Life” on his left hand.
