Snoop Dogghas been arrested in Texas after a drug-sniffing dog discovered marijuana on his tour bus.
According to TMZ, the Sweat rapper was held on Saturday (7th January) at the Sierra Blanca highway checkpoint after border patrol ran a standard inspection with the dog, who found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside in a waste basket.
The celebrity gossip website claims the bottle contained under a half-ounce of weed, with police claiming that The Doggfather admitted the drugs belonged to him.
It is thought Snoop has a prescription for cannabis in California, but law enforcement told the site that unlike some States, Texas has a zero tolerance for weed.
The hip hop star was given a citation for misdemeanour drug possession and released.
The Justice of the Peace in Hudspeth County has since told TMZ: "Snoop can resolve the entire matter by paying a $537 fine, unless he wants to challenge the citation, in which case he can make his case in court."
