Snoop Dog

Arrested Outside 'The Tonight Show'

11/29/2006 1:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Screen GrabRapper Snoop Dogg was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly possessing drugs and a firearm.

Detectives from the Burbank Police Department served a search warrant on Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, outside NBC studios in Burbank at approximately 7:30 p.m. this evening. Police say they found the rapper in possession of cocaine, a firearm and a large amount of marijuana. He was also cited for allegedly having a false compartment in his vehicle.

The rapper had just performed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and was leaving the studio when police pulled his car over on Bob Hope Drive and placed him under arrest. Bail has been set at $60,000, and TMZ is told that the lawyer for the rap star expects him to be released sometime this evening.

During the performance, Snoop clutched a microphone with a large marijuana leaf symbol displayed across his hand.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ the search warrant was conducted as part of an ongoing investigation into the Dogg's arrest earlier this month at the Burbank Airport, after he allegedly tried carrying a gun in a carry-on bag onto a plane.

this whole article isn't news, it's all sameness. a black rapper of moderate to huge success gets arrest for drugs and a gun by the racist good-for-nothing pigs of LA. hopefully in 50 years my grandchildren will see past these things, and incompetant polic forces will be obsolete. the drugs i bet he had, but how much you wanna bet those racist pig-dogs planted that gun on him for their extra-special tv moment. F the police, especially the ones in LA, F them.

I agree with Maurice, the chronic does make you paranoid, and that is probably why he is carrying a gun. 2nd- One of the things that people forget is that being able to work through adversity and problems is what makes people stronger and more apt to handle lifes ups and downs. Without adversity in life it is very difficult to realize how good we truly have it.

I truly believe that snoop will turn it around someday, hopefully soon. All these experiences will make the Dogg stronger for the future, and will help him to realize what a great family he has at home, and that he doesn't need to live the thug life anymore.

In response to flojo#15 Snoop does not bring shame to his race, he brings shame to himself. As a black women I do not associate the whole race with the action of one man. Snoop makes his on choices and they do not impact my life; only people with alittle predjudice behind them would take and clump the whole race together by the actions of one person doing something against character. Some folks never change I see.

bad dog, bad dog!!! Maybe he should have his nose rubbed in it... no... than again maybe not... BUT, he sould definately be spanked!

Famous people are above the law. Snop knows that... why is the law picking on a poor black man?

Snoopy is a clown. He is not above the law, no matter how talented he is. He's still a drug addict and a criminal and should go to jail. Money buys freedom, so he probably won't.
That's what separates me from rich clowns like Snoopy. If I get busted time and time again with guns and dope, I stay in jail.

Snoopy goes home to smoke some more.

God - you people saying "well, it's just a little marijuana" aren't reading the article. He also had cocaine. You people blogging need to get your facts straight and read the whole article. Snoop is nobody's role model, for sure, and with our kids emulating what these rap artists do, his actions do have an impact. He is certainly no role model for ANY race, including the human one.

With that being said, I have read where some in his circle seem to believe that the reason he never does any time is because he's a narc. I find it a little hard to believe, but just thought I'd throw that out there.

Also, I agree with WISE OLD OWL - this arrest and the way it went down does seem a bit fishy to me too. No doubt the good old LA Cops got their wish - getting to do the perp walk with Snoop in front of a crowd and cameras.

To DAVE- what is your problem? Why are you attacking the WISE OLD OWL for making an informative blog? You don't like what she has to say??? Then don't read it you jackass. There was NO reason for you to attack with those ridiculous, personal, mindless insults. Your blogs were filthy, ridiculous CRAP. You managed to spew nothing but ignorance. If you don't have anything to add other than name-calling insults and profanity, then you WILL BE IGNORED on the site. Shut the hell up, go back to bed and smoke some more of whatever the hell you are smoking. The majority of bloggers on this site DON'T GIVE A SH*T WHAT YOU THINK!!!!!! MORON!!!!!!

To your mama,

Obviously you didn't understand what Rachel (#57) was trying to tell you. Dude, you cannot spell. Reading your blogs is like reading the writings of a 5 year old. Seriously, man, there is nothing worse than reading one of these comments and getting by the improper grammar and misspellings that accompany each and every one of them. In your writings, you misspelled the following words: From #56 - "responce" should be response. In your writings at #58, it was much worse. You misspelled the following words: "bye" should have been by; "responcibility" should have been responsibility; "mabey" should have been maybe; "purces" should have been purses; again, you used the word "bye" instead of by. PLEASE LEARN TO SPELL YOUR WORDS - TRY SPELLCHECK OR SOMETHING. READING YOUR BLOGS IS ONE OF THE MOST IRRITATING THINGS IN THE WORLD. GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND GET AN EDUCATION, BECAUSE NONE OF US WANT TO READ ANYTHING FROM YOU UNTIL YOU LEARN HOW TO SPELL.

Connect da dots    

How much money does Snoop dog have? I guess it does it matter. I guess you can take the N*gga out of the Ghetto but you can't take the Ghetto out of the N*gga. Can give'em everything it just does not matter. Look at professional athletes, musicians, politicans and preachers they are all the same. No amount of money or status changes who they really are. Sad but true. This has been proven time and time again...
