Every dogg has his day. In court. Snoop will appear there December 4 after turning himself in to police this morning.
Yes, four days after a warrant was issued for his arrest, rapper Snoop Dogg has just surrendered to Orange County authorities.
The rapper arrived to the OC Jail in style this morning; rolling up in a dark purple Porsche Carrera, along with his driver and bodyguard.
According to Snoop’s attorney, Donald Etra, Snoop was “handled extremely well by the Orange County Sheriff’s Dept.,” while he was booked on one felony count of possession of a deadly weapon.
The charge was filed after security officers at John Wayne Airport found a collapsible baton in the entertainer’s carry-on luggage in September. Pete Doherty would be proud… if he were ever sober enough to realize where he is.
According to the Doggfather‘s spokesperson, Meredith O’Sullivan, “Snoop was promptly released on bail and welcomes an expedited trial which will reveal that these charges are completely unwarranted.”
Bizzle was set at $150,000. If convicted, the 35-year-old rapper could be sentenced to three years in prison, fo’ shizzle, nizzle.
Despite having to pose for yet another mug shot, Snoop was in high spirits on his way out of jail, generously signing autographs for fans. See, Mel Gibson? You can get arrested and still behave with a little decency and respect.
