Rapper Snoop Dogg who was in Sweden for a concert on was briefly taken into custody by the Swedish police on suspicion 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.
Police sources said Sunday that the incident happened after the celebrity rapper gave a concert in the area.
“The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left,” Nilsson added.
The test results were not immediately available.
