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.

Does Leif Garret make whites proud? Why do the actions of an individual black man always represent the whole community? Whites are never judged as a whole for their actions but when it's a black man people will say "look THEY"RE at it again"
Has anyone mentioned race with Charlie Sheen? If he were black can you imagine the comments you'd be reading? People are people..some are good some aren't..end of story!

19. (Dan) 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

Actually, the majority of us come here just to read the comments of others. You see, we are responsible for selecting weekly winners for the "Whiny-a$$ B!tch Crying On His Soapbox" award. As of now, you are in the lead. Unless something changes, you will soon be receiving your awards package including an 8X10 photo of Harvey, signed "Love, Mike", .87 cents, a box of Kleenex...and a Twinkie partially eaten by a hobo named Lou.

Enjoy...and revel in the power that is you!
