Rapper Snoop Dogg turned himself in to Orange County authorities this morning, four days after a warrant was issued for his arrest. Snoop rolled up to the OC Jail in a dark purple Porsche Carrera, with a driver and a bodyguard. His attorney says he was "handled extremely well by the Orange County Sheriff's Dept.," who booked him on one felony count of possession of a deadly weapon. He was released on $150,000 bail, and he is due back in court December 4.
The warrant was issued after Snoop attempted to walk through an X-ray machine at John Wayne Airport in Orange County with a 21-inch collapsible baton packed into his laptop case. Because, you know, a collapsible baton looks a lot like a laptop. And it's not like anyone's going to be paying special attention to what he has in his luggage, just because he's a mega-watt celebrity. And what's the big problem with bringing a 21-inch baton on an airplane, anyway? It's not like it's toothpaste.
