Snoop Dogg Charged With Gun And Drug Counts

Updated:
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) _ Snoop Dogg was charged Tuesday with felony gun and drug counts, Los Angeles County prosecutors said.

The 35-year-old rap star was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Pasadena, prosecutors said in a statement.

Snoop Dogg faces charges of gun possession by a felon and sale or transportation of marijuana.

He was arrested Oct. 26 by Burbank police at Bob Hope Airport on suspicion of transportation of a controlled substance. Burbank police later discovered a gun at his home.

If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison.

``These were changes we fully expected,'' said Snoop Dogg's attorney, Donald Etra. ``They will be dealt with in court tomorrow. The matter will be resolved tomorrow.''

The rapper was convicted in 1990 of cocaine possession and charged with gun possession after a 1993 traffic stop. He pleaded guilty in exchange for three years' probation and a promise to make public-service announcements against violence.

The rapper's manager, Constance Schwartz, said there would be no comment Tuesday but a written statement would be issued Wednesday.
