Update: Chief Keef's reps released the following statement to Billboard. "Keef is confident that he will successfully complete the terms outlined in the deal. He is looking forward to putting this case behind him and is focused on creating new music and promoting his latest project Back From The Dead 3."

Chief Keef was pulled over in Miami last year, where law enforcement arrested him for DUI after he reportedly tested positive for eight different drugs in his system. According to court documents obtained by TMZ on Tuesday (Nov. 13), the Chicago rapper struck a plea deal that will allow him to avoid jail time for the DUI arrest. 

The 23-year-old's felony DUI charge has been reduced to reckless driving, following him no contest plea to the former charge. The report goes on to state that Keef (born Keith Cozart) will walk away from the situation with just six months of probation and a court-mandated 50 hours of community service. 

At the time of his arrest, police reportedly discovered a range of drugs in Keef's system, including Morphine, Codeine, Promethazine, THC, Hydrocodone, Norcodeine, Dihydrocodeine, and Hydromorphone. The "Faneto" MC has kept busy on the music scene, releasing his seventh project of the year with Back From The Dead 3 on Halloween. He also stars in the latest mashup performance of Audiomack's Trap Symphony series
