Rapper Coolio has not been having the best possible time on his current tour of Europe. Late last week he was arrested on a charge that he and seven associates had walked into a clothing store in the town of Boeblingen, and walked out wearing more than a thousand dollars' worth of apparel they hadn't paid for. The store owner also said someone punched him in the stomach.
Coolio says he was invited to the store, and discovered that the owner had been promoting an un-arranged personal appearance by him. He says he stuck around to sign some autographs, and was given the clothing for his trouble. Coolio was released on bail to take his tour to Switzerland, and was due back in Germany this weekend to tell his side of the tale.
