Snoop Dogg arrested over marijuana

Rapper Snoop Dogg has been charged with a drugs offence after a sniffer dog found marijuana on his tour bus.

The 40-year-old, also a top record producer, was arrested at the US border with Mexico.

A US customs chief said officers found a bottle containing rolled joints and more cannabis hidden in two containers. Spokesman Bill Brooks confirmed: "They turned him over to the local sheriff."

Police said the star "freely admitted" the cannabis belonged to him.

Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, will appear in court next Friday charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

He has previous convictions for possessing drugs from cannabis to cocaine as well as gun offences.

In 2010 country singer Willie Nelson, 78, was caught with cannabis at the same spot in Sierra Blanca, Texas.
