Snoop Dogg arrested for gun, drug possession
Snoop Dogg was arrested Tuesday for investigation of illegally possessing a handgun and drugs as he left NBC Studios in Burbank, Calif., after performing on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," police said. The 35-year-old MC, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, and two members of his entourage were arrested around 6 p.m. after a search of his Diamond Bar home and car, Sgt. Kevin Grandalski said. Police seized a handgun and some illegal drugs, Grandalski said. He did not have details. The sergeant said Snoop was arrested for investigation of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possessing cocaine, transporting marijuana and having a false compartment in his vehicle, Grandalski said. "He was in a car pulling out of the studio" when police stopped him, said Donald Etra, Snoop's attorney. Snoop was booked for investigation of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and was expected to make the $60,000 bail and be released early Wednesday, Etra said at about 1 a.m. Wednesday, some seven hours after the arrest. "As of this point, he stands innocent of all charges," Etra said. "The goal tonight was to get him out of jail. The goal tomorrow is to deal with the case." Snoop was expected to be arraigned on Jan. 11, Etra said. Two acknowledged gang members who are associates of Snoop also were taken into custody, Grandalski said. The arrests stemmed from an investigation that followed the Snoop's Oct. 26 arrest at Bob Hope Airport here after airport police said they found a gun and marijuana in his car, Grandalski said. "Additional follow-up investigation led detectives to obtaining the search warrant," the sergeant said. He did not have details. No charges have been filed in that case but Snoop has a Dec. 12 court appearance for an arraignment. Etra said Snoop also has a Dec. 4 arraignment in Orange County following his Sept. 27 arrest for investigation of carrying a deadly weapon at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana. Security officers said they found a collapsible baton in the entertainer's carry-on luggage. Snoop told deputies at the time of his arrest that the baton was a prop for a movie.
