Rappers Chief Keef and Joe Budden both find themselves wanted by police this weekend.

Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, has a warrant out for his arrest after missing a court hearing in Chicago on Friday, according to NBC Chicago. In March, Cozart was pulled over in a suburb near Chicago and arrested after police found marijuana in his car. Cozart has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence of marijuana; however, when he failed to show up in Lake County court on Friday, the judge issued a $50,000 bench warrant for his arrest. Cozart is also being sought on a second warrant for child support he owes.

Budden, meanwhile, is wanted by the NYPD after allegedly assaulting and robbing his ex-girlfriend early Monday morning. According to the NY Daily News, Budden confronted the woman outside a Washington Heights restaurant and forced her into his car. It was then that he allegedly stole her cellphone and twisted her arm before driving her back to his New Jersey home, where he continued the assault.

The NYPD posted Budden’s photo on Twitter asking the public for help in finding him.

Budden responded on Twitter by threatening to sue the NYPD and taunting them over their “manhunt.”
