Snoop Dogg Hit With Gun, Drug Charges After Airport Arrest

ImageSnoop Dogg was arrested yesterday (Oct. 26) at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, CA on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession.

According to reports, the rapper was stopped around 3:30 pm at a loading zone for a vehicle code violation.

A search of the rapper's vehicle produced a gun and an unknown amount of marijuana.

Snoop was arrested and released shortly after posting $35,000 bail.

"There was no basis for this arrest," the rapper's attorney, Donald Etra, told the Associated Press in a statement. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed."

Snoop Dogg, 34, may face criminal charges from a separate airport incident last month, after airport officials found a 21 inch collapsible baton in one of his bags as he boarded a flight headed for New York.

In May of 2005, Snoop was banned from British Airways, after he and five men were arrested in connection with a brawl in London's Heathrow Airport.

The altercation happened after people traveling with Snoop Dogg were denied entry to British Airways' first-class lounge and begin brawling with airport security.

Seven airport security guards were injured.
