Rapper Snoop Dogg surrendered to police in California on Monday (Nov. 6) to face charges of possessing a deadly weapon.
The 35-year-old rapper arrived with his lawyer and a bail bondsman at the Orange County jail in Santa Ana, where he was booked under his real name, Calvin Broadus and released after posting a $150,000 bond.
"He turned himself in this morning," county sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino told reporters. "He was booked, fingerprinted, had his photo taken and an arrest report was filled out."
The arrest warrant stems from a September 27 incident at Orange County John Wayne Airport. The rapper was attempting to catch a flight when airport security spotted a metal collapsible baton in his laptop computer case.
Though possession of the baton could have been filed as a lesser misdemeanor charge, Broadus was charged with a felony based on his criminal record, prosecutors said. Broadus has said the baton was a prop for a video he was to make and was unaware it was illegal to take it on a plane.
Snoop was arrested in a separate incident in October at the Burbank airport, near Los Angeles, after police said they found a gun and marijuana in his car. He was booked and released on $35,000 bail pending a hearing on December 12.
