Police Consider Charges Against Snoop After Airport Incident In Sept.

Superstar rapper Snoop Dogg may be facing criminal charges, after airport officials found a 21 inch collapsible baton in one of his bags last month, as he boarded a flight headed for New York.

According to reports, officials found the baton in Snoop Dogg's laptop case, as the rapper attempted to pass through a security check point John Wayne International Airport, located in Orange County, CA.

Snoop, born Calvin Broadus, told police the 21 inch baton was a prop for a movie he is currently filming.

In May of 2005, Snoop accepted responsibility for a brawl in London's Heathrow airport.

Snoop, 34 and five men in his entourage were arrested during the airport incident, which started when people traveling with the rapper were denied entry to British Airways' first-class lounge.

Seven officers were injured during the fracas, which resulted in Snoop being banned from flying British Airways.
