Rapper Chief Keef is wanted by police after failing to appear at a court hearing stemming from his driving under the influence (Dui) arrest earlier this year (14).

The 19-year-old hip-hop star, real name Keith Cozart, was arrested and charged with Dui after failing a roadside sobriety test in Chicago, Illinois in March (14).

Cozart was also charged with driving on a suspended licence and having no proof of insurance.

He was due to appear in court this month (Aug14) for a hearing regarding the case but failed to show up and now police are searching for him, according to Tmz.com.

The star's arrest in March (14) occurred just days after he completed a court-ordered stint in rehab to deal with his marijuana habit.
