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.

for Driving Under the Influence

7:51 AM PT -- Cops say Irsay had "multiple prescription drugs" in various pill bottles at the time of the arrest.
Cops also say Irsay was initially stopped just before midnight on Sunday after an officer noticed him driving really slow and failing to signal before making a turn.
After he was pulled over, Irsay failed several field sobriety tests and was eventually arrested for OWI.
Cops say the prescription pills found in Irsay's car did not match up with the prescription bottles.
He was ultimately popped for 4 felony counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was ARRESTED early Monday morning in Indiana for operating a vehicle while intoxicated ... this according to officials.
54-year-old Irsay was booked at 3:07 AM. He was also arrested for possession of a controlled substance ... though so far, it's unclear what that substance was.
Irsay was hauled to a jail in Hamilton County, Indiana. Jim's total bond was set at $22,500, according to the official jail website.
FYI -- The Colts have been in Jim's family for decades. Irsay's father purchased the Colts when Jim was 12 years old.

Bree Walker is making a return -- not to local news -- but to rehab ... telling TMZ she's going to seek help.
As TMZ previously reported, the former local news icon was busted for DUI in Orange County, CA last month. Police say she failed a field sobriety test and when she was hauled off to jail, cops had to take her pit bull (who was in the car with her at the time) to Animal Control. She freed him after she posted bail.
Last night outside Mr. Chow, Walker was tight-lipped about the arrest, but did tell our photog, "I'm on my way to rehab, baby."
Walker previously did a stint in rehab back in 2007.

We're Going to Court
3/14/2014 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Another fun photo for the Lohan Family album ... Michael Lohan showed up to court this morning in Florida for baby mama Kate Major's arraignment ... pushing their young child in a stroller.
As TMZ first reported, Major was arrested Thursday night after she got into a huge fight with Lohan, tried to drive away ... but crashed and got busted for DUI.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, the officer on the scene asked Major to perform SIX field sobriety tests ... and she didn't pass a single one.
When asked to touch her finger to her nose, the report says ... "Major missed the tip of her nose on her second, third, fourth, and fifth attempts. Touching her nostril on her second, third, and fourth attempts, and touching the space between her nose and upper lip on her fifth attempt."
As for reciting the alphabet -- "On her first attempt she gave the sequence LMX twice and spoke at a really fast pace. On her second attempt she did not keep her eyes closed and got stuck on the letter V. Major was never able the recite the alphabet from A to Z."
Police say her BAC was .243 -- more than 3 times the legal limit. According to the report, she fittingly told police, "I know I have a drinking problem."
Major was arraigned on the DUI charge, plus a battery charge for the fight with Lohan. She'll be in jail until her next hearing ... on Tuesday.

Call it the rematch ... Michael Lohan and Kate Major had another blowout fight tonight -- but this one ended with her in handcuffs for DUI ... TMZ has learned.
Michael claims they were in a nasty argument at their home in FL when she hit him multiple times in the face.
We're told Lohan called 911, and just as cops arrived ... Kate was fleeing in her car.
She didn't get far -- according to law enforcement, Kate crashed into some bushes near the house ... and was busted for allegedly driving intoxicated.
We're told she's still in custody, and getting booked for DUI ... and possibly domestic battery.
Less than a month ago Kate locked herself in a bedroom, and claimed Michael was trying to break down the door while brandishing a knife.
Police responded to calm the sitch, but no one was arrested ... that time.

"Little People, Big World" couple Matt and Amy Roloff can't stand living together anymore -- they've just announced they're separating after 26 years of marriage.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Matt and Amy have been living separately since the holidays -- Amy currently resides in the family's main house in Oregon ... Matt lives in the guest house.
We're told neither Amy nor Matt is currently pursuing other relationships -- they're just testing the waters living alone ... for now anyway. So far, divorce isn't on the table.
Matt has had a history of drinking problems -- such as his 2007 DUI -- but we're told alcohol was NOT an issue in the split.
The Roloffs -- who have 4 children -- released a statement, saying, "Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation."
Busted for DUI
In Kiwi Country

Chris Pine was popped for DUI after blowing through a sobriety checkpoint and then allegedly blowing a .08.
Pine had been partying at a bar in New Zealand with some fellow actors and his girlfriend, beauty queen Iris Bjork Johannesdottir.
Law enforcement tells TMZ ... he caught their eye after driving through the checkpoint. Officers then made him stop and Chris reportedly blew a .08 ... the minimum for being legally drunk.
The incident occurred on March 1st. He must appear in court on Monday, and if he doesn't the judge will issue an arrest warrant.
Chris was his usual charming self ... very polite and "easy to deal with."
As for what he was doing in the bar ... beer. Maybe it was a game --- say the name of your GF 3 times really fast.
I Take Xanax Illegally
3/10/2014 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber jumped the gun in his deposition Friday ... and in the process admitted he was taking
Rx meds illegally.
As you know, Justin is being sued by a photog who claims the singer instructed his bodyguard to beat him up.
During the questioning, the photog's lawyer asked Bieber if he had a prescription for Xanax. Before Justin's lawyer could object, the singer blurted out that he did not.
Justin's lawyer was clearly upset and told Bieber to hold his horses before answering.
It's a significant question ... because during Justin's DUI arrest cops say he admitted his mom had given him Xanax, and he tested positive for Xanax which is the basis for the DUI charge.
It probably won't impact the case. If Bieber was under the influence it doesn't matter whether he took it legally or not.
But it wasn't the smartest thing for him to say.
The Peeing Video
3/6/2014 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber either has a gigantic dong or cops are being overly cautious ... because the jailhouse video of Bieber taking a leak behind bars has an ENORMOUS black bar.
Miami Beach P.D. just released the video ... shot while Bieber was being booked at the jail.
Nine hours of video has already been released, but the judge wanted special care taken for the video showing Bieber peeing -- the judge wanted to make sure cops covered his junk before releasing it.
It's weird ... law enforcement told us they were having problems black-barring the video because Justin's penis was moving around. But the video only shows him walking to the toilet -- possibly with his penis exposed ... but the movement isn't that radical.
Arresting DUI Cop ...
More Evidence of LIES
3/6/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Miami Beach cop who says he saw Justin Bieber drag racing before his DUI arrest may have been caught in a BIG FAT LIE ... because the GPS results from the cop's car shows normal speed.
TMZ has obtained the GPS readout during the 4 AM hour on January 23. Bieber was stopped at 4:11 AM. The cop claims he saw Bieber drag racing rapper Khalil at speeds between 55 and 60.
Now here's the problem. According to the GPS readout on the cop car ... it was going 11 MPH at the 2600 block of Pine Tree Dr. ... which is where the cop says he first spotted the singer in the Lambo.
The cop accelerated from 11 to 31 MPH in a single block but stayed between 30 and 40 for 3 blocks.
The GPS readout shows the cop car accelerated to 46 and then 49 ... but that's the FASTEST it went.
Now this is significant ... at the 3700 block of Pine Tree ... the cop car had slowed down to 31 MPH. This street is critical because according to the cop it was smack in the middle of the drag race. And get this ... we already broke the story that Bieber's GPS shows he was going 27 MPH on that block.
So the question ... where the hell is the drag race? Remember, the other cop on scene may have lied about smelling alcohol on Bieber's breath ... fact is, the singer registered a .014.
The GPS makes the case against Bieber VERY shaky because it calls the arresting officer's credibility into question. We're told Khalil's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, is going to attack the cop's credibility. Khalil was also busted for DUI.
Peeing Behind Bars
Jail's Got More Cameras Than 'Big Brother'
3/5/2014 11:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
This is getting ridiculous ... the Miami Beach PD just released yet another video of Justin Bieber in jail -- this time showing the singer peeing into a cup -- and it feels like an episode of "Big Brother."
So far, the Miami Beach PD has released 9+ hours of footage (photos too) showing Bieber in jail following his DUI arrest -- including the pat-down, the push ups, the sobriety test, the tattoos ... and now they're showing Bieber taking his urinalysis test.
As we reported, the urinalysis test came back positive for Xanax and weed. (This is NOT the video clip police are having trouble blurring. It's a different camera angle of the same thing.)
It's like the police are turning Bieber's arrest into a mini reality show -- they claim the singer isn't entitled to privacy in jail ... and they might be right ... but we've never seen anything like this before.
And we've seen plenty of DUI arrests.
Showing Off Tats & Muscles in Jail
3/4/2014 9:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
If the push-up video didn't convince you Justin Bieber's a hard mofo, this should do the trick -- the singer showing off his badass tats in jail ... so police could take photos of them.
The Miami Beach PD just released the pics -- presumably snapped to keep a record of Bieber's identifying marks -- and they're GANGSTA AF.
Not really ... but it's hilarious that Bieber obviously thinks so.
We can't really decide on our favorite -- it's a toss-up between the weeping Jesus face and the inexplicable Native American head (the singer once claimed he was "part Indian").
The real shocker is how Bieber can stay standing with two gold chains around his neck.
