Coolio‘s probably not cool with his son being in jail, but he doesn’t have too much room to talk.

The rapper’s oldest son, 22-year-old Grtis Ivey, got into some trouble with the law in November. (He has been charged with robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy robbery, kidnap first degree with a deadly weapon, burglary with use of a deadly weapon and grand larceny.)

But Friday morning, Coolio himself was placed behind bars at the same facility as Ivey…

The 48-year-old star (real name: Artis Leon Ivey) was a passenger in a vehicle was pulled over for a routine traffic violation Friday morning, law enforcement reports. But when Coolio’s name was put through the system, the officer noticed he had two active bench warrants out for his arrest stemming from multiple traffic violations.

As a result, coolio was arrested and booked in the Clark County Detention Center, where his son is due to face a judge Monday. Coolio has since posted bail and been released.
