Snoop Dogg In UK Police Custody
American rapper Snoop Dogg, who’s real name is Calvin Broadus, was in police custody on Thursday after being arrested with five other men following a disturbance at London’s Heathrow airport. The 34-year-old sensation was held after a fight broke out when police were escorting him and his entourage out of the airport on Wednesday evening. Snoop was waiting for a flight to Johannesburg, South Africa.
Scotland Yard said seven police suffered minor injuries, including a fractured hand, after they were called to the airport at around 6 p.m. to deal with a disturbance involving some 30 people in a British Airways business lounge. Reportedly, “members of the group became abusive,” said a police spokesman, after officers told them to reclaim their baggage. “Six members of the group, all aged in their 30s, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and affray,” the spokesman said. Dogg and the other men, all Americans, were taken to two west London police stations where they were held in custody.
