Snoop Dogg, was arrested this weekend at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, a small town in West Texas. Ironically, this small West Texas town was the scene where country singer Willie Nelson was arrested to marijuana back in 2010. Snoop Dogg is known for using marijuana. What is even more ironic, Snoop Dogg blasted the cops in 2010 for arresting Willie Nelson, claiming, “They better leave Willie the f**k alone.”
The arrest happened after a drug sniffing dog uncovered marijuana on Snoop Dogg’s tour bus. Snoop Dogg’s tour bus was passing through the eastbound checkpoint on Interstate 10 around 3 a.m. when a Border Patrol agent, who officials said was routinely checking citizenship, smelled weed coming from the inside of the bus.The bus driver was asked to pull into the secondary lane for further inspection. Agents then asked everyone to get out of the bus so that a canine unit could inspect the vehicle.
According to the agents involved in the inspection, the dog alerted them to check out the waste basket in the back of the bus. Agents say they found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside and a half-ounce of weed.
Officials said Calvin C. Broadus, a.k.a. Snoop Dogg, openly admitted that the pot was his. He was placed under arrest, detained and cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and released.
The Justice of the Peace in Hudspeth County, TX tells TMZ, Snoop can resolve the entire matter by paying a $537 fine… unless he wants to challenge the citation, in which case he can make his case in court.
