Snoop Avoids Jail

Snoop Dogg avoided jail time September 21st by pleading guilty to one count of felony possession of a dangerous weapon stemming from his arrest last year at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Calif.

A judge sentenced Snoop, aka Calvin Broadus, to 160 hours of community service, three years’ probation and ordered him to make a $10,000 charitable donation, according to his attorney.

Airport security detected a collapsible baton in the rapper’s carry-on luggage last September.

Broadus claimed it was a prop for a music video and didn’t know he couldn’t bring it onboard.

The felony conviction would be reduced to a misdemeanor after one year if Broadus stays out of trouble, according to the attorney.
