Snoop Dogg Pleads Not Guilty

Posted By on January 25, 2007

A lawyer representing Snoop Dogg entered a not-guilty plea for his client's weapons possession charge at a court hearing in Santa Ana, California, yesterday (January 24).

Snoop (born Calvin Broadus) was stopped at the John Wayne International Airport on September 27 when officers at the security checkpoint discovered a collapsible baton in his carry-on luggage.

Snoop told sheriff's deputies that the baton was a prop for a movie he'd been shooting.

The baton, which expands from 8 to 21 inches, is classified as a dangerous weapon and is illegal to bring on a plane. The charge carries a maximum three-year prison sentence.

According to the Associated Press, Snoop, who did not attend the hearing, asked for a speedy trial through his lawyer. He is also facing two other drug and weapons charges in the Los Angeles area.

In October, the self proclaimed "Doggfather" was arrested at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, CA, after police discovered a gun and marijuana in his vehicle. The following month in Burbank, he was discovered with a gun, marijuana and cocaine after an arrest outside the NBC studios.
