Rap­per Coo­lio pleads guilty to bring­ing gun to air­port

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Rap­per Coo­lio has been sen­tenced to pro­ba­tion af­ter plead­ing guilty to bring­ing a con­cealed firearm to Los An­ge­les In­ter­na­tional Air­port last month.

The rap­per, whose real name is Ar­tis Leon Ivey, en­tered the plea dur­ing a court ap­pear­ance Wed­nes­day.

Dis­trict at­tor­ney’s spokesman Ricardo San­ti­ago says the rap­per was sen­tenced to three years of su­per­vised pro­ba­tion and 45 days of com­mu­nity ser­vice.

The “Gangsta’s Par­adise” rap­per was ar­rested Sept. 17 when a se­cu­rity screener found a hand­gun in his bag.

The 53-year-old was con­victed in 2001 of car­ry­ing a con­cealed weapon.

A call to his man­ager was not im­me­di­ately re­turned.

The plea and sen­tence were first re­ported Wed­nes­day by TMZ.
