Snoop Dogg (a.k.a. Calvin Broadus) was arrested at 3:45 yesterday afternoon at California’s Bob Hope Airport for illegal drug and gun possession. Police found marijuana and a gun in the rapper’s vehicle while it was being searched as a result of a vehicle code violation. Snoop Dogg posted $35,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on December 12. In a brief statement, his attorney, Donald Etra, said:
There was no basis for this arrest. We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed.”
He’s right, this must be some kind of misunderstanding, because you’d never expect to find marijuana and loaded weapons in a rapper’s car. Especially not from one who talks about getting high and shooting people. Maybe overdue library books or those community watch fliers he was going to hand out later, but never anything illegal. This is obviously some sort of mix up. The judge better clean up those officers’ mess real soon, or the rap world’s reputation might never be able to recover from this.
