Update: Coolio Charged With Drug Possession & Battery

After getting arrested on Friday (March 6) for an alleged incident at LAX, Coolio was formerly charged today.

According to the Los Angeles Times the Compton-bred rapper was hit with one felony count of possession of cocaine, one misdemeanor count of possession of a smoking device and one misdemeanor count of battery.

As previously reported the “Gangsters Paradise” rapper was busted after drugs were found on his person during a routine security check at the airport. It is also believed that he got into an altercation with the screener that discovered the controlled substance. He was apparently on his way to catch a flight for a concert appearance in Tulsa, OK, where he shared the bill with fellow old school emcees Tone Loc and Shock G of Digital Underground.

Coolio, who was released from police custody last week, is scheduled to appear in the L.A. Superior Court on April 3rd. He faces up to three years behind bars if convicted. – Elan Mancini
