Chief Keef arrest video released in Northfield speeding stop

May 31, 2013 (NORTHFIELD, Ill.)

Real name Keith Cozart, the rapper was clocked at 110 mph, police say, as he drove home from a Davenport, Iowa, rap show just after 3 a.m. Monday.

Cozart told police he had $8,000 cash on him at the time of his arrest. When police are overheard showing Cozart how fast he was driving on their radar, he's heard responding, "It's a fast car, that's why I bought it." during the arrest, Cozart also handed an officer the insurance for an Audi, instead of the BMW he was driving.

Cozart was also charged with driving without a license because he only had a permit and had an unlawful number of passengers for a graduated driver.

The arrest came one week after being arrested in Georgia on a marijuana charge.

Cozart was stopped on the northbound Edens Expressway in a 55 mph zone from Lake Avenue to Tower Road in the north suburb, Pioneer Press is reporting.

Cozart, who listed a Northbrook address, had three passengers with him in his 2011 BMW when he was stopped.

He was booked into jail May 20 after an arrest at a hotel in Dunwoody, Ga. after hotel security "observed smoke and a smell of marijuana from a room."

The rapper posted a mugshot of himself May 21 on Instagram and announced on Twitter that he "Jus Got Out" of jail in DeKalb County, Ga.

For his most recent charge Cozart was given a $2,000 bond and a June 17 court date.

He has previously served time for a gun charge and a violation of parole related to handling a firearm.
