Snoop Dogg Arrested In Stockholm, Sweden

ImageU.S. Rapper Snoop Dogg was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden on suspicion on minor drug offenses last night (Mar. 11) after a performance at the Globen Arena.

The rapper was in Stockholm, as part of the Pass The Puff European Tour, which is being co-headlined by former rival Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Snoop Dogg, born Calvin Broadus, had finished his concert and was due to appear at an after party at the Scandic Anglais hotel in Stockholm, when police stopped his vehicle on the Centralbron bridge.

Police searched the car and found a small amount of narcotics, but would not specify the amount, or the type of drug that was found in the car, because it was unclear who the drugs belonged to.

According to police, Snoop Dogg and his associate showed "clear signs" of being under the influence of an unknown narcotic.

The rapper and a 23-year-old female companion were arrested around 1:30 am in what local reports labeled a "planned raid" and taken to a police station.

Snoop Dogg provided a urine sample and if the tests come back positive for drugs, Snoop Dogg could be fined.

Sources said that earlier in the evening, a hotel room was also raided, where another associate was arrested with a "carton" of cigarettes, that police claim contained marijuana.

Sweden has some of the harshest narcotics laws in Europe, but minor drug offenses are usually punished with fines.

Snoop was released Monday morning around 5:30 am and is scheduled to perform at the Oslo Spektrum in Olso, Norway tonight.
