Snoop Dogg snagged by snoopier one
Snoop Dogg was detained by authorities at an airport in Norway yesterday after a drug-sniffing dog alerted to a small amount of marijuana the artist brought into the country, Norwegian media are reporting.
Customs officials declined to confirm the report, saying only that an American artist who entered Norway was briefly held and fined.
Norwegian law prevents law enforcement officials from naming suspects.
The Associated Press quoted an anonymous customs officer as saying Snoop — found to be holding marijuana and more cash than is legally allowed – was fined 52,000 kroner ($8,600) for the violations.
Snoop Dogg was scheduled to perform Thursday at a musical festival in the southern town of Kristiansand.
The Daily Mail reported that Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, allegedly arrived at the Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand with around eight grams of the drug.
It was his second drug bust this year. In January he was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas after an inspection at a Border Patrol checkpoint.
