Coolio was reportedly arrested earlier in April as a result of a domestic dispute.

According to TMZ, on April 1 he pushed his girlfriend/baby mother Anabella Chatman to the ground and punched her in the face, then grabbed his son (still a toddler) and drove away with another woman in tow.

What's worse, he also hit Chatpman with the car, leaving tiring marks on her legs.

Questioned by police, the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper argued that it was his girlfriend who was attacking him, not the other way around.

He said she was jealous -- presumably of the other woman he'd brought home -- and scratched him in anger. The police, however, didn't believe his story and he was arrested.
