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.

The thing about Snoop aka Calvin is this guy has children and this point is always over looked. The black community does not have alot of positive role models and for some reason these thugs get alot of attention. It would be nice for a change if a black leader comes out and condemns this type of behavior and standards. We talk about Britney and put her down about her behavior with kids, well the same should things be said about Snoop. By the way, I like your posts Wise Old Owl, Dave go eat rat fece.

blah blah blah    

Snoop comes across to me of being a careless flawless repeat offender, who knows no other way to get the attention he seems to be so starved for. If breaking the law, and having drugs in his possession is his only way of getting this type of attention, then he needs to be just like the ordinary person on the street, and be convicted for it already!!!!!!!!!!!!
God Knows if it were me or the next person, it would have already happened.

WISE OLD OWL...........................................SO GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN
KEEP UP WITH YOUR POSSITIVE/NEGATIVE/OPINUATED/INSPIRING POSTS, FOR I VERY MUCH ENJOY READING WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY.
THESE IDIOTS WHO HAVE NOTHING BUT DEROGOTORY INSULTS MUST BE ALONE AND SO MISERABLE WITH THEMSELVES THAT THEY CAN'T FIND THE TIME TO DO ANYTHING GOOD OR NICE.

Only in American can Snoop Doggy Dogg Dogg Dogg be arrested outside the Tonight Show, and Marlee Matlin's husband announce it.

I did some research, Ellis. Not very far at all. Actually, there is a hormone released in the brain during moments of.....well, have you ever seen a black do a really bad-ass slam-dunk, and then they start running back upcourt.....they start running hunched over, arms dangling precariously close to the ground and fixed in that "gorilla" pose, and the have that "ooh ooh ooh" neanderthal face....
Science. That hormone gets released in the moment of triumph, and they very momentarily revert to their roots. Very animalistic. It's scary....watch.
