Coolio Arrested, Rapper Coolio was arrested in Las Vegas today and was promptly placed behind bars at the same prison as his son. Law enforcement told TMZ that Coolio was a passenger in a Nissan Versa which was pulled over for a routine traffic violation early Friday morning.
They then ran Coolio’s name in the their system and discovered that he had two active bench warrants out for his arrest stemming from multiple traffic violations.
Coolio was arrested and taken to Clark County Detention Centre.
It’s the same place that his son Grtis is incarcerated for allegedly robbing someone at gunpoint.
Coolio’s bail has been set at $5,850 and court date has not yet been set.
He has since posted bail and was spotted at Las Vegas casino the Golden Nugget following his release, according to TMZ.
Coolio’s oldest son, 22 , – who appeared on the family reality show Coolio’s Rules – was arrested on November 14, 2011 for allegedly busting into a Vegas apartment with a gun and forcing the tenant into the bathroom.
Then he and a female prostitute named Shantrice Wilkerson, again allegedly, ransacked the place.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Shantrice was at LAX nightclub at the Luxor on October 26 and met a man called Joseph Hall.
He claims he didn’t know she was a call girl and that she told him she had a ‘dream’ of having sex on a pile of money.
Hall asked if $5,000 was adequate, she agreed and the two went back to Hall’s apartment to get the cash out of a safe.
But Wilkerson asked for the money too soon and Hall became suspicious and asked the girl to leave.
However, Wilkerson remembered where Hall lived and brought Grtis to the place three days later so they could rob it.
