      Rapper Snoop Dogg (born Calvin Broadus) was arrested Thursday at Bob Hope Airport on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a gun and transportation of marijuana, authorities said.

      Airport officers stopped Snoop Dogg at about 3:45 p.m. for an alleged vehicle code violation in the passenger loading and unloading zone, according to Burbank police Sgt. Kevin Grandalski.

      Police said they soon discovered a gun and marijuana in Snoop’s vehicle. The 35-year old rapper was then taken to the Burbank Police Station Jail where he was booked on gun and drug charges, said Grandalski.

      "There was no basis for this arrest," the rapper’s attorney Donald Etra said in a statement. "We believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed."

      Snoop was released on $35,000 bail. Arraignment is scheduled for Monday in Burbank Superior Court.

      It’s not the first time Snoop Dogg has ran into trouble at an airport this year. As we previously reported, the Dogg Pound veteran attempted to smuggle a 21" collapsible baton into an airplane last month. The baton was confiscated by airport authorities and Snoop Dogg was allowed to continue his flight.
