Snoop arrested in airport again
Snoop Dogg was arrested on suspicion of gun and illegal drug possession Thursday at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Calif. Snoop posted $35,000 bail. Airport officers stopped a vehicle Snoop Dogg was in around 3:45 p.m. Thursday for a code violation at a loading zone. The officers searched the vehicle and said they found a gun and marijuana. "There was no basis for this arrest," Snoop's attorney, Donald Etra, said in a released statement. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed." This is just the latest in a string of airport incidents for Snoop in recent months. Prosecutors announced Oct. 23 that they are considering charges against him in connection with a Sept. 27 encounter in which a 21-inch collapsible baton was found in his bags as he boarded a New York-bound flight in Irvine, Calif. In May, Snoop accepted responsibility for using "threatening words or behavior" during an April brawl at Heathrow Airport in London. As a result, he was banned from British Airways.
Snoop's court date in Burbank was scheduled for Dec. 12.
