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.

To the hater "Ellen, oh I mean Ellis" You must don't have a life. I agree with SouthernNYC, you don't hear about black men kidnapping and raping like black kids, but the white men seem to rape their own, brothers, sisters, neighbors, cousins, and children of the pulpit. Like Ellis parents.

To St. Louis newcomer. I'm sure you're from East St. Louis if you know whut I'm sayin. Try turning on the news in your fair city and watch the continuous barrage of negroid ghetto crime:

1. Home invasions
2. Car jackings
3. Armed robberies
4, Criminal Assaults
5. Rape
6. "Stinkins"
7. Drug trafficking
8. Drug use
9. Pimpin

Does this mean that white folks are not prone to some crime, of course not, BUT it's not the EVERYDAY, DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY violence of the inner cities. Only when we enact laws that permit these vermin to be exterminated will civilized America (that would be me) get ahead of the curve. Don't forget to vote today

And by the way St. Louis newcomber, My Mother is 91 years old and if she heard your foul mouth ghetto speak, not to mention your inability to punctuate or use the word "like" six times a minute, she'd bitch slap you all over that East St. Louis ghetto and run over you with her walker. Say good bye, your case has been closed

That's the problem with the quote/unquote black community. They never want to take any responsibility for there own actions. I feel very bad for the hard working, honest, Negroes, who know there place. I hope one day white and Negroes can co-exist, but the Negroes have to police themselves better before this can ever happen. Good luck to you all and God Bless.
