Dogg's Day in Court

12/4/2006 4:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg: Click to watchSnoop's still a free Dogg ... for now.

The rapper appeared in court today, where a judge agreed to delay arraignment on Snoop's felony charge of possession of a deadly weapon at John Wayne Airport.

TMZ has exclusive video of the rapper in an Orange County courtroom where the judge set bail at $150,000. Snoop already forked over the cash.

Arraignment was postponed until January 24, with Snoop signing a waiver allowing him to skip "non-substantive" hearings. Snoop aka Cordozar Calvin Broadus, requested the delay in order to "review all the facts and defenses."

Charges against the rapper were filed in September, after security officers at John Wayne Airport found a collapsible baton in his carry-on luggage.

1 down 2 more to go I guess....down in the sense of just a preliminary hearing, still grand juries and potential real trials to happen next....I guess the disconnect here is any average citizen with previous conviction and facing multiple charges wouldnt be free on bond. Oh, maybe that will come out when they get to the gun charge on the next arraignment he faces.

I would color this man gone, but Hollywood types seem to receive different justice so wont be surprised if he walks on all 3 counts he is facing. Anyone else would be going away for half a lifetime.

A perfect example of how f***ed up the criminal justice system is. If you are rich, you can post back to back $150,000 bail. Anyone else has to stay in jail until the court hearing! What a joke! He got busted three f***ing times and will probably get arrested again. Lock his ass up and throw away the key, period!

It's sickening how many racist people post on this website... I do agree though that people with money, whether white, black, hispanic or asian, are able to use their money to avoid jail time.

a deadly baton??? you can go for jail for having a baton at an airport? that to me is ridiculous. the man is so skinny he needs a weapon. they would do anything to get a black man in jail. i know people that went to the airport with more than that and didn't get arrested

I think he has messed with the wrong woman.

He was set to get a divorce from his wife, but they are back together. Now later on in the year it seems like the Police have inside info on him.

But if your going to drive around with guns & drugs.. its only a matter of time before you get caught.

I wish that we could go back in time and arrest all of you EUROPEAN AMERICANS (by that I mean all of you damn so-called caucasians) for MURDER, RAPE, BIGOTRY and the list could go on & on. Don't ever try to judge anyone for crime they commit in this sorry ass white-mans world. Keep your head up Snoop & watch your back. Plus whoever wrote that with "aim small & he'll provide the shot". Do you mean your Penis size or what. Pricks, get a life and shut the F.... Up!
