Snoop Dogg claims racial profiling after arrest in Sweden on drug suspicions
Snoop Dogg was briefly arrested in Sweden on suspicion of using illegal drugs, and the rapper documented what happened in a series of videos on Instagram.
“Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg [whose car was pulled over] seemed to be under the influence of narcotics,” a police spokesman for Sweden’s Uppsala region said, according to Agence France-Presse (via The Guardian). “He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test.”
“The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left,” the spokesman added. The test results were said to not be immediately available.
In his Instagram posts, Snoop claimed the arrest was due to racial profiling and said he wouldn’t come back to Sweden.
“They took me down there, made me pee in a cup, didn’t find s—t. No case, no nothing,” he said in one of the videos.
But, he added, “It’s better to be searched and not found with nothing than not to be searched at all.”
A rep for the rapper didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. You can see his Instagrams below.
