Coolio was arrested early this morning on a routine traffic stop after officers saw that his tags had expired on his 1996 Hummer at the intersection of Sunset Blvd. and Sweetzer Ave.

Further investigation found that Artis Leon Ivey Jr. also had an "outstanding misdemeanor traffic warrant for driving with a suspended license," according to the LA Times.

He was released from jail this morning at 6:40 a.m. on a $10,000 bond. He will probably take a nap and then go back to the kitchen for his show, "Cooking with Coolio." An episode of Coolio "teaching your ass" how to cook a Caprese salad is embedded below.
