Snoop Dogg was charged with gun possession by a felon and a marijuana-related drug violation yesterday according to Los Angeles prosecutors. Snoop is expected to be formally charged with the crimes early today, where he could face up to four years in prison.
The charges stem from his October arrest at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank where he was taken into custody on suspicion of transportation of a controlled substance. Burbank police then executed a search warrant on Snoop house where they found a gun. He was arrested again on November 28 after an appearance on the Jay Leno show.
Snoop was convicted on felony drug possession and possession for sale in 1990. If he is convicted of all the current charges, he could face four years in a state prison.
