The bizarre got even more bizarre. Just after we learned that Coolio's 22-year-old son is currently in jail for a crime involving a call girl and robbery with a deadly weapon, the 48-year-old rapper has reportedly been arrested himself today. What's more, Coolio is being housed at the same Nevada jail as his son.

According to TMZ, Coolio was arrested in Las Vegas Friday, when he was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for a routine check. Shortly thereafter, it was discovered that Coolio had two bench warrants out for his arrest that were the results of multiple traffic violations. He was transported to Clark County Detention Center (where son Grtis Ivey has been residing since November of last year), with bail set at $5,850.

Meanwhile, Grtis awaits a judge hearing on Monday.
