Snoop Dogg held overnight by Swedish police on narcotics suspicion
Snoop Dogg was held by Stockholm police overnight on suspicion of using illegal narcotics but was released after questioning
and drug tests, a police spokesman said Monday. The artist was heading to a party after a concert in the Swedish
capital when police stopped the car he was riding in around 1:30 a.m., said Matts Brannlund, of the Stockholm police. He said Snoop and a female companion showed signs of drug use and were taken to a police
station. "He was deemed to be under the influence of narcotics," Brannlund said. A small amount of narcotics also was found in the car, but Brannlund could not specify which kind of drug and he said it was unclear whether
it belonged to Snoop Dogg."He underwent some tests that will now be sent away for analysis," Brannlund said. "In two to three weeks, we'll know if he was on something." Snoop Dogg was released shortly after 5 a.m. but could face a fine if his drug test comes back positive, Brannlund said. In Sweden, which has some of the strictest narcotics laws in Europe, minor drug offenses are punished with fines. Snoop performed with P. Diddy in Stockholm's Globe Arena late Sunday.
