Snoop Dogg was arrested yesterday (Oct. 26) on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession. The rapper, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was arrested at 3:45 p.m. at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Calif., police said. He posted $35,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 12.

Airport police officers stopped Snoop Dogg at a loading zone for a vehicle code violation. When officers searched the vehicle they found a gun and marijuana, police said.

"There was no basis for this arrest," the rapper's attorney, Donald Etra, said in a statement. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed."

The Orange County district attorney's office has been considering charges against Snoop Dogg after authorities last month discovered a 21-inch collapsible baton in his bags as he boarded a New York-bound flight from John Wayne International Airport.
