Rapper Coolio was arrested back on April 1 after bringing home another woman to the place he shares with his girlfriend, which promoted an argument.
One which allegedly ended with him punching his GF in the face.
Coolio got popped after he allegedly pushed Anabella Chatman to the ground and hit her in the face ... then bolted with their toddler son and the other woman.
And get this: Anabella says Coolio also struck her with his car as he peaced out in a hurry - hard enough that she could show TIRE MARKS ON HER LEG.
Coolio told the cops he was the victim and that she scratched him in a jealous rage, but it was he who ended up in the slammer, so guess they didn't buy it.
Been spendin' most our lives ... livin' in a surburban paradise.
