In news you couldn’t make up: Keith Cozart, a.k.a. Chief Keef, was arrested in Chicago today only minutes after pleading guilty to a separate charge.

According to The Chicago Tribune, Cozart appeared at the Skokie Courthouse to face charges stemming from last month’s arrest on the Edens Expressway. Cozart was clocked going 110 in a 55 mph zone, and was also cited for having too many passengers in his vehicle (Cozart currently has a learner’s permit, which allows for just one passenger.) Under terms of his plea deal, Cozart was sentenced to 18-months probation, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service, and fined $531. He must also complete eight hours of traffic school.

Upon leaving the court house, Cozart was was arrested by Chicago police officers on a misdemeanor trespassing charge and was taken into custody.

This marks Cozart’s third arrest within the last 30 days. On May 20th, Cozart was arrested in Atlanta and charged with disorderly conduct after he was found in possession of marijuana. He also remains on probation in Illinois stemming from an incident in 2011 in which he pulled a gun on a police officer. Earlier this year, he was sentenced to 60 days in prison for violating his probation after he was filmed firing at a gun range in a promotional interview. During his sentencing hearing in January, Cozart told the judge, “I beg you please. Give me one more chance to show you… I am a very good hearted person. I have not picked up any more cases… That’s not my life anymore.”

Yet, despite all this, he still found time to record a verse for Kanye West’s new album, Yeezus.
