Sean Paul Gets Irie, Gets Busted in Sweden

8/11/2008 6:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Singer Sean Paul has been popped on drug charges at -- where else? -- a reggae concert in Sweden this weekend. Smoke 'em if you got 'em!

Swedish cops tell us Paul was brought from the huge Uppsala Reggae Festival to a local police station on suspicion of possessing narcotics. We hear 200-300 people also were brought in from the Fest this weekend, also on drug-related charges.

In addition to concertgoers, police say ten (!) artists performing at the show also were hauled in for questioning -- they later were released.

Cops tell us they have sent all "evidence" to a lab for testing, and will have results in a month.

Reps for Sean Paul had no comment.

Stay tuned ...

Are they really wasting their time busting party goers at a Reggae show? How silly. That's part of Reggae nation, smoking weed and having a good time. And to go as far as busting the talent for the show, crime in that country must be at an all time low. I guess I won't be going there to smoke weed.
