Snoop from 'The Wire' arrested in Baltimore

Posted on

Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, who played the drug-dealing murderer of the same name on HBO’s The Wire, was arrested this morning in Baltimore as part of a large-scale drug crack-down on heroin and marijuana, according to the Baltimore Sun. More than 30 people were arrested after a five-month investigation, police officials told the paper. Pearson has had previous run-ins with the law: she spent six and a half years in jail after a conviction for second-degree murder when she was only 14 years old.
