Snoop Dogg Loses 422k to Authorities in Italy

Once again, Snoop Dogg is once again in trouble during his Europe tour. According to Time, the Doggfather had to cough up $422,000 to police today at the Lamezia Terme airport in Calabria, Italy. The legendary rapper was stopped by customs at the airport carrying a large sum of money way over the limit established by the European Union, which is 11,000 USD. According to the report, the money was impounded by Italian anti-money laundering codes. However, minus the fines given for the impounding, the balance would soon be return to Snoop.

This incident follows a similar one that occurred last week in Sweden when Snoop Dogg was stopped by Sweden police after a show. The rapper was arrested and sent to a police station for drug suspicion, and eventually had to take a drug test. Although he passed, it seems Snoop Dogg is still a target to authorities around Europe.
