Things are not going well for Snoop Dogg in Europe. He’s been touring there after releasing the Pharrell-produced LP Bush earlier this year, and as the Guardian reports, the rapper was stopped by police in Italy today while carrying $422,000 in cash, well above the legal limit of money that can be transported across European Union borders without being declared. He’s not being arrested, but he will have to pay a fine. “We clarified everything from a legal point of view,” Snoop’s lawyer Andrea Parisi told Reuters. “The money came from concerts he had performed around Europe. There was no crime; it was just an administrative infraction.” Half of the cash was returned immediately, while the other half was seized by Italian authorities and is being held until the amount of the fine is determined.
Less than a week ago, Snoop was also arrested and briefly detained in Sweden on suspicious of marijuana possession. He was questioned, tested for drug use, and released, after which he made several angry posts to Instagram alleging that he had been a victim of racial profiling. “Made me pee in a cup, didn’t find shit,” he said. “No case, no nothing.”
