    Rapper Snoop Dogg facing possible charges for being caught with a baton at an airport

    Prosecutors are considering charges against Snoop Dogg after authorities discovered a 21-inch collapsible baton in his bags as he boarded a New York-bound flight, authorities said Monday.

    The rapper, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, had the baton in his laptop case as he went through a security checkpoint at John Wayne International Airport on Sept. 27, sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said.

    Snoop Dogg, 35, told sheriff's deputies that the baton was a prop for a movie he was filming in New York, Amormino said.

    "He had a collapsible baton and it is classified as a dangerous weapon," Amormino said, adding that the stick collapsed to eight inches.

    District attorney spokeswoman Susan Kang Schroeder said her office received the sheriff's report on Monday. She said prosecutors had not yet decided whether to charge Snoop Dogg, who was not arrested.

    It wasn't the first time the rapper has had a problem at an airport.

    In May, he accepted responsibility for using "threatening words or behavior" in an April brawl at Heathrow Airport in London. Snoop Dogg and five other men were arrested on charges of violent disorder and starting a brawl after some members of the rapper's party were denied entry to British Airways' first-class lounge.

    Seven officers received minor injuries - mainly cuts and bruises - and one suffered a fracture to the hand.

    British Airways has banned Snoop Dogg from future travel on the airline, it said last month.

    Snoop Dogg was convicted in 1990 of cocaine possession and was charged with gun possession after a 1993 traffic stop. Facing a possible three years in prison, he pleaded guilty in exchange for three years' probation and his promise to make anti-violence public service announcements.

    He also was acquitted of murder in 1996 following the death of an alleged street gang member killed by gunfire from the vehicle Snoop Dogg was traveling in.

    What a great role model for American youth.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Mr. Calvin "Snoop Dogg" Broadus is a fine, upstanding citizen. In fact, he is a member of the community based group, the C.R.I.P.S. There he shares common interests with youth from lower class communities of the L.A. area. He leads as an example for enterprising young inter-city youth as well as supporting agriculture in the US and Canada. He has also devoted money and time to serve our criminal justice system.

    Why is everyone always picking on him? They must be profiling.

    What a loser. He's a known gang member yet Dodge still decided on using him in their commercials? I've heard of some police agencies not supporting their new Charger packages for that reason alone. Just something to think about...

    Snoop Dogg suspected of gun, drug possession

    LOS ANGELES - US rap star Snoop Dogg was arrested in Los Angeles on charges of gun and drug possession, police said.

    The rapper, born Calvin Broadus, was arrested Thursday at Burbank's Bob Hope airport, just outside Los Angeles, after police discovered a gun and marijuana in his vehicle while confronting him over a parking violation, according to police lieutenant Omar Rodriguez.

    Snoop Dogg was released on $35,000-bail and is due to be arraigned on Monday, police said.

    The arrest marks the second time the 35-year-old "gangsta rap" star has faced trouble over charges of possessing an illegal weapon.

    In late September, he was stopped at another Los Angeles-area airport after being found to have a banned police baton in his bag, which he said was to be a prop in a video he was shooting in New York.

    The rapper has had several brushes with the law since being tried and acquitted for murder in 1993, the year he found fame with his debut album "Doggystyle."

    Earlier this year, he was arrested at London's Heathrow airport after his entourage sparked a melee when denied entry to an airport lounge. AFP

    What's up with Snoop and airports?

    if the baton was only intended to be a movie prop, why would he try to carry it on a plane, anyway? I'd think it'd be much easier to put it in checked luggage, or Fed-Ex it to where he's going...

    Damn! Ronin beat me to the punch on the latest arrest. But that "Poop Froggie Blog" or whatever the fuck his name is really needs to go away. He glorifies gang activity, drug use, killing cops and abusing women. And the news media and Hollywood establishment glorify it just to make money. I'd love to stop that douchebag in my turf stoned out of his gourd and have him reach for a gun under the seat. He would find out the hard way that I roll with the largest street gang in the World! FIVE-O! And we don't do drive-by's. We have the balls to stand and face you when we put a hurting on you. Bangers are cowards and punks.
