Chicago rapper Chief Keef was arrested in Highland Park on March 5, days before the release of his single "F*** Rehab." 

Keef -- whose real name is Keith Cozart -- was charged with driving under the influence, expired registration, driving while license suspended, and uninsured motor vehicle, according to TribLocal. The report did not identify Cozart, 18, of Northfield, but a Highland Park police spokesperson confirmed it was Cozart who was arrested Monday morning.

TMZ was first to report the arrest, citing police sources. 

He was released after posting $300 bail. His single "F*** Rehab," inspired by a stint in a rehabilitation facility in California, debuted last week.
