Snoop Dogg was recently arrested in Sweden on suspicion of using illegal drugs and the rapper responded in a way that is typical of him. The 43-year-old, known for his love of marijuana, was detained on Saturday and released after undergoing a sobriety test at a police station. He later posted videos on Instagram slamming Swedish police. Snoop had performed that night at the Stadsträdgården in the city of Örebro.
“On my way to a police station in Sweden,” he said in an Instagram selfie video that appeared to have been filmed in the back of a squad car. “Sorry about that, all the fans in Sweden. I’ll never be back to this country. Ya’ll can thank your police chief and all the people that run your police department. It’s been real. Thank you, but I’m gone.”
Daniel Nilsson, a police spokesperson for the central Uppsala region, told the Swedish news site The Local that police carrying out roadside controls saw Snoop Dogg’s car was pulled over and that the rapper “seemed to be under the influence of narcotics.”
“He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test,” he said. “The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out, he left.”
