Snoop Dogg Detained in Sweden on Suspicion of Drug Use
Snoop Dogg was detained in Stockholm, Sweden on Monday morning (March 12) after authorities stopped his vehicle and suspected that he was under the influence of illegal narcotics. According to the Associated Press, Snoop was on his way to a party following a concert with Sean “Diddy” Combs in the Swedish capital when police pulled him over at around 1:30 a.m. Officer Matts Brannlund of the Stockholm police said that the rapper and a female companion appeared to be under the influence, and a small amount of narcotics were found in the vehicle. Brannlund did not specify what type of drug was found and stated that it was unclear whether or not the substance belonged to Snoop. The rapper was released at around 5:00 a.m. after undergoing tests for narcotics in his system. The test results are expected to come back in two to three weeks, and if they prove that he was intoxicated at the time of the arrest, Snoop will likely face a fine. Diddy and Snoop kicked off a joint European tour on Friday in Helsinki, Finland. The tour is expected to run for 22 performances, ending on April 2 in Nottingham, England.
