COOLIO ARRESTED FOR A LOADED FIREARM AT THE AIRPORT
Rapper Coolio was heading out of LA on Saturday morning, when a loaded gun was found in his book bag while going through TSA at LAX.
According to TMZ, law enforcement said that someone from Coolio’s camp said that the firearm did not belong to him, but to his bodyguard.
His bodyguard was detained for questioning while Coolio boarded the plane. However, upon further investigation it turned out that the other items that were in the bag with the gun did belong to Coolio.
He was removed from the aircraft and joined his bodyguard for questioning. Eventually he confessed to owning the bag, and it was later learned that the firearm was stolen.
Both were arrested for possession of stolen loaded firearm, and Coolio was booked for possession of a firearm by a felon.
