Legal Losses: Tyga's Arrest and Snoop Dogg's Citation
This past week wasn't really a good one for rappers, west coast rappers in particular. Both Tyga and Snoop Dogg had run-ins with the law. Tyga's arrest went down in Las Vegas this weekend, after the rapper was pulled over for a traffic violation. Police discovered an active warrant from past traffic incidents for the "Rack City" rapper and took him into custody. He was released on his own recognizance.
Now Snoop's trouble doesn't really come as much of a surprise. The doggfather was traveling via bus when the vehicle was stopped at a border control checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas. Police searched the bus and found some weed. Snoop was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug posession and released. He only faces a $537 fine, unless he wants to fight the charges in court.
