Cops found two active bench warrants out for his arrest after pulling the hitmaker over during a routine traffic stop in Sin City on Friday morning.
Coolio was taken into custody and hauled off to the Clark County Detention Center, where he is now being held on $5,850 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 October 29.
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 November 14.
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
