Dogg Gone to Court For Firearm, Drug Charges

by at . Comments

He's no Jason Wahler.

Few could match the Laguna Beach graduate's skillz at being arrested - four states, four different incidents, and all in one calendar year.

Nevertheless, Snoop Dogg, a.k.a. Snoop Doggy Dogg, a.k.a. Tha Doggfather, a.k.a. Calvin Broadus, has a pretty long rap (har har) sheet of his own.

Snoop Dogg was charged Tuesday with felony gun and marijuana charges, the Los Angeles County District Attorney announced. The charges stem from his October 26 arrest at Burbank's airport after a handgun and marijuana were found in his car, police say.

The 35-year-old rapper faces up to four years in state prison if convicted. His arraignment was set for Wednesday.

Of course, he won't get that, because as Suge Knight says, he's a narc - and the man don't its their own informants.

But who knows. Police executing a search warrant at his suburban L.A. home in November allegedly discovered another gun. Because Snoop Dogg is a convicted felon from a 1990 cocaine bust, he is forbidden from possessing a gun for life.

His attorney, Donald Etra, tells People: "These are the charges that were fully expected, and they will be dealt with in court."

Well, that clears it all up.

The musician also has a case pending in Orange County - a felony charge of knowingly possessing a dangerous weapon. On September 27, Snoop tried to board a plane in Santa Ana, Calif., while carrying a 20-inch collapsible baton in a laptop computer bag, police say.

He faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

"Snoop's not guilty plea (in that case) says it all," Etra previously told People. "The item he's charged with was a movie prop, not a weapon. Snoop never intended it to be used as anything other than a prop."

This was the latest trouble for Snoop, who last month canceled his British tour with rapper Diddy after Snoop was denied a visa into the country.

There were rumors Snoop was arrested in Sweden and detained by police during said tour, but that turned out to be false. For once.
