Snoop Dogg Arrested
October 27, 2006 at 6:51 AM (PT)
SNOOP DOGG was arrested yesterday at BOB HOPE AIRPORT in BURBANK, CA on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession. According to reports, the rapper was stopped around 3:30p at a loading zone for a vehicle code violation. A search of his vehicle produced a gun and an unknown amount of marijuana. SNOOP was arrested and released shortly after posting $35,000 bail.
"There was no basis for this arrest," the rapper's attorney, DONALD ETRA, told the ASSOCIATED PRESS in a statement. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed."
SNOOP DOGG, 34, may face criminal charges from a separate airport incident last month, after airport officials found a 21-inch collapsible baton in one of his bags as he boarded a flight headed for NEW YORK. In MAY of 2005, SNOOP was banned from BRITISH AIRWAYS after he and five men were arrested in connection with a brawl in LONDON's HEATHROW AIRPORT.
