2012-03-10 07:44

Las Vegas – Rapper Coolio was arrested on a warrant charging him with failure to appear in court on a traffic ticket almost two years ago.

Coolio (48), whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr., was a passenger in a vehicle officers stopped at about 2:20am yesterday in several blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip, Officer Laura Meltzer said.
No one else in the car was arrested.

It was not immediately clear if Ivey had a lawyer. His manager Susan Haber said she had not heard about the incident and had no comment.

Ivey was sought on a warrant charging him with failure to appear on an illegal stop and driving without a licence summons issued in June 2010.

He was freed later in the day. A court date wasn’t immediately known.
Coolio is a musician, actor and record producer best known for the song Gangsta’s Paradise.
