Dogg Obedient -- Rapper Turns Himself in to Cops

11/6/2006 4:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg: Click to watchFour days after a warrant was issued for his arrest, rapper Snoop Dogg has just surrendered to O.C. authorities.

The rapper arrived to the Orange County Jail in style this morning; rolling up in a dark purple Porsche Carrera, along with a driver and a bodyguard. According to Snoop's attorney, Donald Etra, Snoop was "handled extremely well by the Orange County Sheriff's Dept.," while he was booked on one felony count of possession of a deadly weapon. The charge was filed after security officers at John Wayne Airport found a collapsible baton in the entertainer's carry-on luggage in September.

According to his spokesperson, Meredith O'Sullivan, "Snoop was promptly released on bail and welcomes an expedited trial which will reveal that these charges are completely unwarranted." Bail was set at $150,000.

If convicted, the 35-year-old rapper could be sentenced to three years in prison.

Despite having to pose for yet another mug shot, Snoop was in high spirits on his way out of jail. TMZ spies noticed the rapper generously signing autographs for waiting fans.

Snoop is due back in court December 4th. Every dogg has his day.

IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT THE ONE TIME A BLACK PERSON MAKES IT ON TMZ'S WEBSITE, IT'S HIS MUGSHOT.

THIS COMING AFTER TMZ CRUSIFIED MEL GIBSON FOR BEING A BLABBERING ALCOHOLIC.

VERY DECENT OF YOU, TMZ. YOU ARE DOING REALLY POSITIVE THINGS FOR SOCIETY. HARVEY LEVIN, YOU DESERVE A NOBEL PRIZE.

How did Snoop, his driver, and his bodyguard all fit into a Porsche Carrera?
I thought they were small? Did they sit on each other's laps? Is there some kind of extremely over-priced side cars you can purchase? Somebody educate me, I drive a tractor...

The district Attorney should be fired for wasting taxpayers money on prosecuting this case!!!

He/she is only prosecuting this case because this man is a celebrity and they are trying to move up the ladder. What a waste of taxpayer money.

Whoever typed "And all of you haters stop with the "what's a black man doing with a laptop" crap. He uses it to keep all his pics of naked little boys" needs a little pop culture lesson. The only people with pictures of little boys on their laptops are old white men in office (religious and government).

To the attntion of "That Other Girl"

If all these rappas and hippity hoppas would kill each other, as they seem to want to do, we can save a lot of taxpayer's dollars in future prosecutions and incarcerations.

U Know Who    

Hi there "that other girl", EVERYONE in the states including my four year old nephew KNOWS you cannot take weapons on a plane.

This is a federal case not some bullshit district court. Snoop WILL lose against the feds, he could resurrect Johnny Cochrane and STILL lose. Especially since he was stupid enough to do this BACK TO BACK at TWO Different Airports! No judges even bullshit district court judges, look kindly on BACK to BACK similar charges...they never do.

He will do time, federal time meaning EVERY last minute , no parole no good behavior.

Snoop, you need to get an ACTUAL LAWYER not some put me on camera two second sound byte loser. That guy is a wannabe, Donald Etra "My client is innocent" yeah that helps Snoop ol' buddy. I would reccomend looking up the gentleman about to keep 16 Million Dollars in "The Killers" pockets. THAT is a REAL Lawyer!

No more prejudice!!! If old white men in office (religious and government) can have pics of naked little boys on there laptops, snoop should be able to have pics of naked little boys on HIS laptop!!! Now, no more of this "snoop shouldn't be able to have allllllll the pics of naked little boys on his laptop" crap. I'm sure they're on there for a darn good reason.
