Snoop Dogg was arrested in Sweden on Saturday night (25.07.15).
The ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ hitmaker was pulled over and taken into a police station where he was forced to take a urine test following his show in Copenhagen as officers believed he had been using illegal drugs
Daniel Nilsson – police spokesman for the Uppsala region – said in a statement: “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.”
The entire incident is only believed to have lasted “several minutes” as the test results were not immediately available, meaning he has been released while testing is carried out.
The spokesman added: “The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left.”
The 43-year-old rapper has been open about his personal drug use in the past and is a keen advocate of cannabis, which he is legally allowed to use to treat migraines in California.
And in 2013, Snoop confessed to smoking up to 80 cannabis blunts per day, adding he would “love” to show his kids Cordé, 20, Cordell, 18 and Cori, 16, how to smoke the substance “the right way”.
Snoop later ranted ranted in a series of Instagram videos after his arrest.
In one of the clips, he said: “On my way to the police station in Sweden, sorry about that, all the fans in Sweden, I’ll never be back in this country.
“Y’all can thank y’all police chief and all the police that run y’all police department. It’s been real, thank you but I’m gone.”
The ‘Peaches n Cream’ hitmaker also accused the police of only pulling him over due to the colour of his skin and claimed he was “snatched” out of his car.
He raged: “In the police station, doing a report on me ’cause, profile, racial profiling. They came [and] snatched me out of my car, brought me down here.
“[They’ve] got me in the back of a police car in Sweden, pulled a n**** over for nothing, taking us to the station where I’ve gotta pee in a cup, for nothing, I ain’t did nothing, all I did was came in this country and did a concert.”
