According to a report from Agence France-Presse, famous hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg was detained by police in Sweden on Saturday night after they suspected him of using illegal drugs.
“Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg (whose car was pulled over) seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test,” said Daniel Nilsson, a police spokesman for the central Uppsala region.
“The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left,” Nilsson added.
Swedish police did not give details on how they knew the rapper was under the influence of drugs, given that the vehicle he was in was not in operation when they approached him.
According to the report, Snoop Dogg was arrested after performing at a concert Saturday evening. The encounter does not appear to have occurred violently.
Results of the drug test were not available at the time of writing.
