Coolio charged with crack possession

Rapper turned reality TV star Coolio has been charged with possession of crack cocaine and battery following his arrest at Los Angeles International Airport last week. Coolio (real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr) was detained on Friday 6 March after a crack pipe was reportedly found in his luggage. The rapper earned an additional charge of battery after allegedly grabbing a security officer’s arm while his luggage was being searched.

If found guilty, he faces up to three years in prison. He is scheduled to appear in court on 3 April 2009.
