Talk about a gangsta’s paradise gone wrong.
Artis Leon Ivey Jr., better known to the Hip Hop world as Coolio,was arrested over the weekend and taken to jail in Las Vegas for failure to appear in court for an illegal stop and driving without a license in June of 2010. When he arrives at the Clark County Detention Center, he found his son Grtis being held without bond for numerous charges including robbery and kidnapping.
Grtis allegedly robbed Joseph Hall of some cash and valuables in Hall’s home at gunpoint for not paying to play with his prostitute friend, Shantrice Wilkerson.
Coolio was released later that day for his traffic offenses. Grtis faces robbery, kidnapping, and grand larceny charges in a Las Vegas courtroom today.
