As if the fact that he’s over 40 and still rocking those struggle braids isn’t embarrassing enough, Coolio can now add another item to his list of not-so-proud moments. The ’90s rapper, was arrested in Las Vegas earlier today and taken to the same jail where his son is locked up.

According to TMZ, Coolio was riding in a Nissan Versa when it was pulled over for a routine traffic stop. After running his name in the system, police found that the 48-year-old, who recently appeared on the Rachel Vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off show on The Food Network, had two active bench warrants due to a host of traffic violations. He was carted off to Clark County Detention Center, and his bail has been set at $5,850, but at least his son can keep him company.

The aforementioned offspring, Grtis Ivey, was arrested last November for ransacking a Las Vegas apartment alongside his companion—who just happened to be a female prostitute. Ivey allegedly robbed the tenant at gun point to recoup money owed to his friend.

Looks like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. But seriously, what’s good with those braids?
