Coolio and his clique were arrested at LAX for allegedly trying to pass a loaded gun through security.
The rapper has since been released on bail and addressed the incident in a YouTube video, calling the whole thing a misunderstanding:
Law enforcement reportedly told TMZ the rapper and his team were flagged Saturday moring while trying to leave Los Angeles. The gun is said to have been found in a book bag, and although one of Coolio’s crew members took ownership of the bag — witnesses reportedly told cops the gun belonged to Coolio.
Police are believed to be reviewing the evidence and taking witness statements. A representative for the rapper told TMZ the gun belonged to a member of Coolio’s security.
It is unclear, at this time, what sort of gun was found.
