    Default Coolio is a Foolio

    COOLIO ARRESTED AT LAX WITH LOADED, STOLEN GUN, POLICE SAY

    Rapper Coolio and another man were arrested at LAX Saturday morning for allegedly trying to bring a stolen loaded gun through the security screening area, police said.

    Airport police say that around 10:50 a.m. a 39-year-old man was stopped at an X-ray screening belt after TSA screeners detected a firearm in a bag. They determined that the bag

    contained items belonging to the man's 53-year-old traveling companion, who had already gone through security and boarded an airplane.


    Police took that man off the plane and say he claimed ownership of the carryon bag.

    Both men were arrested for possession of a stolen loaded firearm and were booked at LAPD Pacific Division jail.

    LAPD booking records identified the arrested man as 53-year-old Artis Leon Ivey Jr. -- the rapper's real name. His bail was listed as $37,308.

    Coolio is a Grammy-winning rap artist best known for his single "Gangsta's Paradise." In recent years he has also appeared on reality television and released his own cookbook.

    ANY gun to the airport=stupid (what, you think they might MISS it??).

    Loaded *and* stolen gun, I just don't even know what was going on. Maybe they forgot it was in the bag because DUH.

    Is his "travelling companion" similar to Queen Latifah's "longtime personal trainer"?

    Foolio pre-flight checklist:

    1. Did I just bring a gun to the airport? check
    2. Is it stolen? check
    3. Do I look like Coolio? check

    Wonder if the gun actually did belong to his "companion", who put it in Coolio's bag without his knowledge? Maybe he thought because Coolio was a celebrity, they wouldn't search the bag and he could get away with it? Far fetched, I know, but I also like Coolio and hope he really didn't try to do something so stupid...

    Back in the 90's I had a friend that was a big DJ, but he made the majority of his money doing soundtracks for porn movies.

    COOLIO FELONY GUN CHARGE... No-Show in Court
    10/13/2016 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


    Coolio was just charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, and he's got even more immediate problems ... he didn't show up in court.
    The L.A. County D.A. filed the charge after the rapper tried to get a loaded gun through LAX security.
    TMZ broke the story ... Coolio was yanked off a plane back in September after TSA found the gun in a book bag ... one of his crew members tried to take the fall, but cops searched the bag and it wasn't hard to determine it was the rapper's.
    Coolio's lawyer tried explaining to the judge ... his client had a performance in St. Louis and couldn't make it back in time. The judge just cut Coolio a break. He has to show up October 26th ... or else.
    Coolio faces up to 3 years in prison if convicted.
