Snoop Dogg Arrested at Burbank Airport

Police say the rapper had marijuana and a handgun in his car

Snoop Dogg was arrested Thursday afternoon at Burbank, Calif.’s Bob Hope Airport on suspicion of possessing marijuana and a handgun, police tell the Los Angeles Times.

The rapper (real name: Calvin Broadus), 35, was arrested by officers from the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police Department, who reportedly discovered the weapon and drugs after approaching him for parking in a passenger pickup zone.

After being taken into custody, the rapper was freed on $35,000 bond. His arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 12 in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Burbank.

His attorney, Donald Etra, said in a statement: “There was no basis for this arrest. We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed.”

Last month, the performer – who has sold more than 17 million records and appeared in such films as Starsky and Hutch – was arrested after allegedly trying to board a plane at John Wayne Airport in Orange County while in possession of a 21-in. collapsible police baton.

And in a 2004 airport incident at London’s Heathrow airport, Snoop Dogg and several members of his entourage were arrested after an altercation in the business class lounge, which they apparently did not have permission to use.
