Coolio arrested in Las Vegas

Rapper Coolio, born Artis Ivey Jr., was arrested in Las Vegas early this morning, after the car he was a passenger in was pulled over and police realized there were two active bench warrants out for his arrest – stemming from previous driving violations. As TMZ first reported, Coolio was held at the same jail where his son is currently awaiting trial for a robbery with a deadly weapon charge. The 48-year-old settled his nearly $10,000 bail and was released this afternoon.
