Cops Get the Poop on Snoop

8/22/2008 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sounds like something out of "The Wire": Snoop Pearson -- a convict who once pled guilty to murder and then became an actress -- got nabbed for pot possession ... because she wouldn't testify at a murder trial. We'll explain.

Here's where it gets interesting. Authorities were trying to strong-arm Snoop into testifying at a murder trial. She wasn't cooperating so the judge issued a body attachment warrant, which allows cops to pick her up and haul her ass in court. But police say they got a bonus -- weed. When the popo barged into her home, they allegedly found two cigars containing marijuana.

Prosecutors say Pearson watched a murder suspect knife three guys back in 2005. Will they now leverage the arrest to force her on the stand?

Stay tuned ...

Seriously?    

You know they only arrested her because she wears glasses. When, oh when, can we as a society stop hatin' on people for wearing glasses?

That's what I'd do. "Sorry, coppers, I CANT help you". Which is better than the lil kim approach to testifying (lying). People it is not your civic duty to get yourself killed helping the coppers do their job.

Plus +

I don't see them here, helping me slack off (I mean do my job).

Snoop is from the show "The Wire" and was great on the show (best show ever!). She was the most believable 5'2" drug-lord employed hit-man (er...woman) I've ever seen. ...and she's so butch in real life that it's scary.
