NBA Commissioner, David Stern, recently requested that players leave their guns at home.
Apparently basketball fan, Snoop Dogg, didn't get the message.
The rapper was arrested yesterday at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession. The Associated Press reported that airport police officers stopped Hollywood's favorite canine (whose real name is Calvin Broadus) at a loading zone for a vehicle code violation.
In a subsequent search of the vehicle, the police say they found a gun and marijuana.
"There is no basis for this arrest," says the rapper's attorney, Donald Etra. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed."
They better be. If not, Snoop can always follow the lead of Alison Clinton and start his own website to proclaim his innocence.
As TMZ also reported previously, the Dogg faces the possibility of charges against him after authorities discovered a 21-inch collapsible baton in his bags at John Wayne International Airport last month.
But is that really any more dangerous than any possibility that Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos could pro-create? We don't think so.
