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 was really STUPID for Snoop to carry anything resembling a weapon , concealed to board an aircraft! Especially these days! doh! He hasn't exactly the best track record lately, with the fiasco in London etc. I agree that he should retain a very EXPERIENCED lawyer.

Post #24 Dolly Schmolly: Listen-up here, you are totally misinformed: Unless the Feds decide to initially delay or otherwise temporarily postpone filing federal criminal charges (either by Indictment or Information) by giving deference to the state (highy unlikely in this case) by allowing them [the state of California] first crack in prosecuting this case, even if Snoop is ultimately acquitted of the [state] criminal charges at trial, the Feds still 'preserve' their right to prosecute him under the appropriate federal criminal statutes releveant in this case. Technically, this is a 'federal criminal offense', and, unfortunately it doesn't matter how good his legal counsel is - this is Federal Court and, I can tell you from personal experience, he doesn't stand a chance in Hell if he ends up facing federal charges for this offense unless the AUSA is willing to offer him a plea deal.

I guess Katt Williams wanted to show-up Snoopy. I'm surprised he didn't have a couple of ounces of weed on him. Isn't this burn out worth millions? I think, no, I'm sure, their handlers are taken them to the bank. Remember 50 getting busted with no insurance, registration and licence. That old saying continues to be proven true, you can take them out of the ghetto but .... They're certainly not doing anything to disprove it. I think they should go back to school and get their GED, it would be a start. RIF, reading is fundamental. LOL!!!

Snoop is definitely not a shining example of the African American community. Whatever happens in his case/s will happen. You all know by now that justice is not blind but bought. And if you don't know that, you're naive or in denial. IMHO, Snoop is part of a sub culture that non-Black people hate on but do not mind emulating (whiggers)or reaping benefits from (corporations & entertainment related industries). The ignorant, venomous racialized comments and slurs used here are shameful & reprehensible. How is it that the people making these weak pitiful comments do not understand things any better than they do? Or are they just facist, racist inbred garbage? All African Americans, not even a majority, do not live in "ghettoes", wear hats backward, embrace hip hop culture or make unwise decisions when traveling. Instead of telling you hateful ones to get back to your trailers, heat up your tater tots, bust a cap on a Milwaukee's Best, sit down on the seats from a '54 Olds with your uncle daddy and hee haw about watchin' Jackass:The Reunion, I'll take the high road. As someone suggested before...grow up and be more responsible!

Even us red necks have the sense not carry weapons onto planes. We don't need um any ways, we'll just kick your ass with our boots. These niggers are further proof that they're all a bunch of candy-ass bitches. We don't kill each other like they do. They're the same as a rabid dog and need to be dealt with in the same manner!
