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.

Leave the Dogg alone for goodness sakes! Why are the politicians wasting our tax dollars chasing Snoop Dogg around? How much detective work did it take to figure out that Snoop Dogg was in the vicinity of some weed? And of course he carries a firearm - any celebrity in El Lay probably needs to carry one...

Is it a coincidence that Snoop gets Pop'ed after a tonight show Weed leaf bling incident and just a few weeks ago Willie Nelson's bus was pulled over the day after he & Texas Gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman called for decriminalization Or were both Snoop & Willie's bust also just good police work?

Why are our politicians making examples of these people? The El Lay politicians want to add to the USA's World Record for the greatest number of citizens incarcerated... "Land of the Free"? not to a whole bunch of your fellow citizens and mine?

There's Something Happenin' Here - You better Stop what's that sound? Everybody Look what's goin' down – déjà vu all over again!

Narcotics+ firearms possesion at the same time is a felony.I dont care if hes white black or polkadot pink...he should get 10 years, but ill bet he wont..money is the deciding factor if someone goes to prison these days...nothing else.

any publicity for a celeb ...is....good publicity...period....it puts them in the limelight and it doesn't hurt their fanfare...i mean look how paris' rep and roles in movies and "career" just exploded after the sex tape scandle and the no panties for her, brit-brit, and lindsey...its an old addage...any publicity is good publicity and its proven true over the years!

Sounds like plain old HARASSMENT from the pigs to me. They say they searched him as part of an investigation from the past, that's BS. And cops wonder why nobody stops to help them when they are getting their asses kicked on the side of the road.

My name is Doggy
I am a Hoggy
I smoke my bunt
And I get real Frogy
Don’t mind my gun
It’s 6 inch fun,
Plus more to play.
Whatchusay?
You’re gay?
Chill out fool
Clean up that drool.
Leave me alone
I’m getting stoned.
I play my game
To reach this fame,
But kiss my ass
I love my grass.
Bitches, whores,
You know your chores.
Get on those knees,
And say please.
So I love no one
So I love no one
So I love no one

To all the folks who take the time to type comments:
Why not try spelling your words correctly, use correct tense and God Forbid maybe even sound intelligent with some correct grammar usage from time to time.

If what I read here and lots of other places reflects our 'education', we are in deep doo-doo!
