Rapper Snoop Dogg has been arrested for the third time in three months after police found weapons and narcotics in his vehicle during a roadside stop.
The 35-year-old was detained by police near Los Angeles yesterday (28NOV06) after leaving the NBC studio where he'd taped a performance on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO.
Police spokesman Sergeant KEVIN GRANDALSKI said a search found marijuana, cocaine, a firearm and a false compartment in his car.
The hip-hop star, real name CALVIN BROADUS, was booked, and bail was set at $60,000 (GBP30,800).
Last month (OCT06) the rapper was arrested on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California.
In September (06) Californian authorities discovered a collapsible baton in his bags as he boarded a New York-bound flight from John Wayne International Airport. He surrendered to police earlier this month (NOV06) to face charges of possessing a deadly weapon.
In May (06), the rapper was cautioned by British police following his April arrest for affray at London's Heathrow airport.
