Someone who’s clearly not a “Versace” fan opened fire on the rap group Migos … and the whole situation exploded into a rolling shootout in Miami last night.
According to police … the Migos crew was driving in a van on a highway — after a club appearance — when another vehicle pulled up alongside them and started shooting.
There are reports one of the group’s bodyguards was shot in the leg and hospitalized, but Migos’ manager tells us no one in their van was injured.
He also claims they returned fire at the other vehicle, telling us … “There was at least 40 rounds being blasted on those n*****.”
The manager says their driver drove to the nearest hospital … thinking someone on board might have been shot — though somehow they escaped unscathed.
Police confiscated the van from the hospital — it was was riddled with bullet holes — and it’s being processed as part of the investigation.
Chief Keef really does hate being sober — TMZ has learned, the rapper was popped for DUI … less than two weeks after he left rehab for weed.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Keef was pulled over in Highland Park, IL early in the AM on March 5th for having expired tags on his 2010 Jeep Cherokee. When officers approached the vehicle, we’re told it reeked of pot and, according to our sources, Keef openly admitted to smoking before driving.
We’re told police administered a field sobriety test and Keef choked. He was placed under arrest at the scene. In addition to DUI, Keef was also charged with driving on a suspended license and cited for having no proof of insurance.
The rapper was subsequently released after posting $300 bail.
It’s crazy for several reasons — Keef had just left court-ordered rehab for weed addiction in February … and three days after his arrest, he posted a pic of himself smoking weed on Instagram.
