Rapper Chief Keef, 17, was arrested Monday afternoon at the high-end LeMeridan Hotel, north of Atlanta, for smoking weed in his hotel room. TMZ has released the recording of the "nerdiest 911 call ever," in which a panicky hotel security guy alerts the operator about "a bunch of gentlemen rolling marijuana and smoking...all in the room...the room's filled with smoke." In the recording, the guard expresses his shock that the weed rollers allowed him to enter the hotel room, despite their illicit activities. "I announced myself as 'security' and they let me in the room as if it doesn't even matter," he says. He also asks the operator to send authorities as quickly as possible, out of fear that "those guys may just bolt." Chief Keef, real name Keith Farrelle Cozart, was arrested and charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct for smoking pot. He was released Tueday morning, which he announced on Twitter: "Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As fuck [emoticons]". The Chicago native, whose debut album Finally Rich dropped last December, is known for rapping about violence and drug use in tracks like "Hate Bein' Sober." This isn't his first brush with the law; in March, he completed a 60-day sentence for violating his probation on a gun conviction earlier this year.
