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 made his bed and should have to lie in it, just like any other ordinary person should! He should NOT get preferential treatment just because of who he is and whatever amount of money he may have!! For #19 and the statement that YOU made? It's ignorant and hating people like you that, in part, makes things in this world sad and just plain wrong! Don't put others down until you look DEEP within yourself and "fix" the things that are so obviously screwed up and shameful!

And the same thing for #40 too-VERY sad comment!! The actions of one person should have nothing to do with comments against any race, in part, or as a whole! But it's ignorant hating people that keep racism going. And for those who make comments about glorifying gangs and/or their members for ANY reason-stupid. Gang members pretend like they're tough, cool, and so brave when they're all together terrorizing people and doing other very illegal things-and running around like a pack of rats. That is ignorant and just plain pathetic! It used to be that someone was admired for their hard work or other things they did and said. But today, many times that is just the opposite. One group of people that truly deserve our respect and admiration today is ALL of the men and women in our military that is fighting in this war (and didn't have a choice), and for the ones who have paid the ultimate price-with their life!!
