Rapper Coolio has been arrested and jailed at the same prison where his son is currently incarcerated in Las Vegas.
Cops found two active bench warrants out for his arrest after pulling the Gangsta’s Paradise hitmaker over during a routine traffic stop in Sin City on Friday morning.

Coolio wastaken into custody and hauled off to the Clark County Detention Centre, where he is now being held on $5,850 (GBP3,656) bail.

Ironically, his eldest son has been locked up at the same facility since last autumn after allegedly robbing a man at gunpoint.

Grtis Ivey and his female friend Shantrice Wilkerson allegedly broke into an apartment and forced the tenant into a bathroom as they tore through the residence looking for valuables on 29 October.

The pair reportedly made off with two laptops, two iPads, and a safe. Both Ivey and Wilkerson were later identified by the victim and taken into custody by cops on 14 November.

Ivey has since been detained on a handful of charges, including grand larceny, robbery with a deadly weapon and first degree kidnapping, and he is due to face a judge on Monday, according to

A court date for Coolio has not yet been set.
