From a Times Staff Writer

The rapper-actor known as Snoop Dogg was arrested Thursday at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a gun and of transporting marijuana, police said.

The performer, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was arrested by officers from the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police Department at 3:45 p.m.

Officers had approached him for a vehicle code violation in the passenger loading and unloading zone.

Police said they soon discovered a gun and marijuana in his vehicle.


He was freed on $35,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Burbank on Dec. 12. Last month, Broadus was arrested after allegedly trying to bring a collapsible police baton aboard a plane at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.
