Coolio Gets Bench Slapped by Judge

4/5/2010 8:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For the first time since 1995, Coolio is a wanted man again.

TMZ has learned a $10,000 bench warrant was issued for Coolio's arrest today, after the rapper failed to show up to court in L.A for a progress report hearing.

Court documents show Coolio's lawyer tried to get in touch with the rapper to find out why he was a no-show ... but couldn't get him on the horn.

Coolio has been on probation since last year, after pleading guilty to possession of a controlled substance -- specifically, crack cocaine at LAX.

all you people that keep saying "TMZ needs to leave (such and such celebrity) alone" are coming to TMZ precisely because TMZ's job is to NOT leave (such and such celebrity) alone

idiots, all of you

you come here quite often to read about or see celebrities in their personal environment then complain, in thread after thread, about the celebrities being 'bothered' and say that the paparazzi should get their asses kicked

that's the price of being a rich celebrity, alright? they asked for attention now they got it
