Snoop Dogg Arrested For Drug, Gun Possession At Airport

Rapper busted when car was searched in passenger loading zone.

After his second run-in with airport cops in a month, Snoop Dogg might want to consider pulling a Madden and traveling by bus from now on. Snoop (real name Calvin Broadus) was arrested at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, on Thursday afternoon on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a gun and of transporting marijuana, according to Sergeant Brian Llewellyn of the Burbank Police Department.

Snoop was arrested at 3:45 p.m. on Thursday after officers approached him for an unspecified vehicle code violation in the passenger loading and unloading zone, and then discovered a gun and marijuana in his vehicle. Llewellyn said the arrest report did not specify what kind of gun or what amount of marijuana was found in the car or whether Snoop was traveling alone at the time.

After being booked into the Burbank Police Department jail, Snoop was released at 7:50 p.m. on $35,000 bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles County Superior Court on December 12.

"There was no basis for this arrest," Snoop's attorney, Donald Etra, said in a statement, according to The Associated Press. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed."

The rapper was arrested last month while trying to board a plane at the John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California, after he allegedly attempted to bring a collapsible 21-inch police baton onto the aircraft. The Orange County District Attorney's office is still considering charges in that case. A spokesperson for Snoop's label could not be reached for comment at press time.
