In The Dogg House ...

US rapper Snoop Dogg (Calvin Broadus as far as his passport is concerned) has been released from police custody following a fracas at London's Heathrow Airport.

The ‘star’ and five others were arrested on suspicion of affray and violent disorder and held overnight in custody.

Snoop left Heathrow police station after being bailed to return to a West London police station in May. Police said 30 people were involved in a disturbance in a business lounge at Terminal 1 on Wednesday. Seven police officers were left with minor injuries after the incident, which is alleged to have ensued after members of the rapper's entourage objected to being turned away from the facility.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "At 6pm last night. officers were called to reports of a disturbance involving 30 people in a business lounge at Terminal 1. The party was told that they would not be permitted to board their flight and officers then attempted to direct the group to baggage reclaim. It was at this point that a number of the group became abusive and pushed officers. Evenin' all …"

The six men, all US citizens, were taken into custody at two west London police stations. A British Airways spokeswoman said:
"Given the nature of the disturbance they have been banned from travelling with BA for the foreseeable future."

In 2004, Dogg released an album called "R & G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece". One particular verse rings true, it’s called "Let’s Get Blown" and it just happens to go like this:

“Now you can fly the friendly skies
With the S-N double O-P D-O double G-Y
Now don't ask why, just keep looking good in the hood
Damn girl, you so fly! We could do what you want to …”

Mmmm … fascinating what fate delivers, eh Dogg?

Snoop’s own website has been inundated with comments berating the rapper's behaviour. Wayneeday posted “Hey butt nugget! Good job at Heathrow, ya throwback …”. There have been numerous other posts in the same vein but an overworked webmaster is deleting them faster than they can be published.

No doubt Dogg will have his say once back on US soil and I can't wait to read that little beauty ...
