Chief Keef calls Chicago home, but today the embattled rapper is adding a page to the legend of Florida Man (via Miami Herald).

The 22-year-old born Keith Cozart was arrested on Saturday in Miami beach and charged with a DUI after police found him with a “cup filled with a syrupy liquid known as sizzurp, which is also known as ‘lean’ or ‘purple drank.’” The report also said Keef had ““bloodshot, watery, droopy eyes” as he failed to perform up to standards in a sobriety test.

Green leafy substances were also involved in the stop that resulted in two more people being arrested.

We hope Keef — who has been arrested before — can stay out of trouble, but just enjoy the epic mugshot above and Keef (aka SosaOtto) tunes below.
