US rapper Snoop Dogg was briefly arrested by Swedish police on suspicion of using illegal drugs, police have said.
“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.
The rapper, 43, was stopped after giving a concert in the area on Saturday night. “The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left,” Nilsson added. The test results were not immediately available.
