Snoop

Faces Felony Weed and Gun Charges

4/10/2007 7:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0410_snoop_bn-1Snoop Dogg was charged today with two felony counts related to arrests last year on gun possession and marijuana charges, the District Attorney's office of Pasadena announced.

According to the criminal complaint, Snoop is accused of selling or transporting marijuana on October 26, 2006. Snoop also faces the charge of possession of a firearm by a felon on November 28, 2006. Cops say the aforementioned weapon is a semi-automatic handgun.

Snoop will be arraigned at 10:00 AM tomorrow morning at Pasadena Superior Court.

Snoop was arrested on October 27 outside the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank after police found a gun and marijuana in his car. He was then arrested on November 28 outside the NBC Studios after an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." 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.

If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison.

TMZ spoke with Snoop's attorney, Donald Etra, who said, "These are the charges we expected, we will resolve it in court tomorrow."

He's got away with so many things, that he probably thinks this will be no different! Celebrities and other people with money, should be treated the same as anyone else but that's usually not how it works! They should receive the same sentences as anyone else in America would, instead of receiving special treatment just because of who they are, or how big their bank accounts are! Snoop makes choices just like anyone else, and HE should have to face the same consequences, AND live with the choices he makes-no matter how STUPID they are. He could do so much for himself and others, but instead HE CHOOSES to "play" with weapons and drugs-LOSER toys!! What a positive role model! Maybe he will be able to rap for the jail boys!!!!!!

snoop should get the same time that any other person out on the street should get. i personally am a big fan of rap music, but even so i don't think that he should get better treatment just because he has enough money to pay some lawyer to keep him out of jail... he should get what is coming to him and that should be jail time.... and people wonder why we get labeled and stereotyped.... our music labeled and stereotyped... because the people who have the money and power to make positive changes always seem to make negative ones.... sorry snoop, but i'm tired of having to suffer for everyone else's mistakes..... all i have to say is "i hope you don't drop the soap!!!!"
