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 ...

Just reinforces what I already knew. So many racists on this site! As others have stated0check this womans life-take the time to Google her and educate yourselves before you judge her! She has really accomplished a lot and turned her life around.

Oh pleeeezzzeee........we are suppose to educate ourselves and google her to find out how "hard" this woman's life has been and how she had to try to turn herself around. So she is supposed to receive some "golden ticket" to a promised land. Maybe, because of her background, she should take a different approach and a shove her success in peoples faces and show how she can rise above. But of course "y'all" don't see it that way....................as usual!!!
