Coolio’s eldest son has been arrested is currently locked up in a Nevada jail. You remember Coolio, right? The Gangsta’s Paradise guy? Anyway, his son was arrested for allegedly hooking up with a Las Vegas prostitute to rob a guy at gunpoint.
I feel like that song should be playing in the background for the rest of this story.
22 year-old Grtis Ivey, who appeared on the reality show “Coolio’s Rules” as ‘Artis’ was arrested on November 14, 2011 for busting into an apartment in Vegas, forcing the tenant into the bathroom at gunpoint. He and female prostitute Shantrice Wilkerson then ransacked the place.
According to TMZ, the police report states that Shantrice was working an LAX nightclub at the Luxor on October 26, and she met a guy name Joseph Hall. He didn’t realize she was a call girl. It’s Vegas, after all. Most everyone looks like a prostitute.
The two hit it off, and Wilkerson told Hall she had a “dream” of having sex on a pile of money.
Hall asked if $5,000 was OK, and she said yeah, sure, I guess that’ll do, and the two went back to get some cash from Hall’s apartment.
The report continues that the two took the cash and went to Shantrice’s place to bone, but, being the businesswoman she is, Shantrice asked Joseph to pay her first. Joseph flipped out and left. But then, Wilkerson remembered where he lived and brought Grtis to the place three days later to rob it.
Coolio’s son then entered the home with a gun, and the two stole a safe, two iPads, two laptops, a passport, and pretty much everything else.
According to the police, they were able to identify Coolio’s son and the hooker, and they were both arrested for robbery with a deadly weapon, first degree kidnapping and grand larceny.
Grtis is currently being held without bail, set to face a judge on Monday.
