Chief Keef is in legal hot water ... a California judge issued a bench warrant after the rapper failed to show for a court date.
Chief Keef was MIA from a Wednesday court hearing relating to his DUI case, so the judge issued a $10K bench warrant.
Things seem to have been unraveling for Keef, legally speaking, since his arrest for DUI back in June 2021.
According to our sources, there was an outstanding warrant in that case from missing a court hearing. Law enforcement sources tell us cops were running plates during a routine traffic stop last month and pulled Keef over for driving on a suspended or revoked license. That's when officers saw an active warrant in the system from the DUI case, and Keef was booked and released without bail.
Our law enforcement sources tell us Keef was ordered to appear Wednesday in court but never showed, which led to the new warrant being issued.
We reached out to Keef's camp ... so far no word back.
