Rapper Snoop Dogg has become talk of the town, both because of his new activity which is writing a novel and his being put in jail following an altercation at London's Heathrow Airport on Wednesday night April 26th, 2006. The star and several members of his entourage were taken to a West London police station, where they spent the night in custody but soon then released on bail in the following day.
Chronicling on the incident it was all begun when Snoop and his pals were denied entry into the lounge because some were flying first class while others were flying economy class. And when officers told the group they wouldn't be allowed to board their flight, some people from the group became abusive and pushed officers. Reports said there were seven police officers suffered minor injuries, among them a fractured hand.
Thus, six members of the group one of whom is Snoop were subsequently arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and affray. Though, "Snoop has been released on bail," his attorney, Peter Binning, told the Associated Press. "He will return at a later date." Binning, moreover, said Snoop was released without charge and would leave the country to honor concert commitments in South Africa, one of which due Thursday will be rescheduled with the remaining dates will go on as planned.
