Rapper Snoop Dogg was recently arrested in Stockholm, Sweden on suspicion on minor drug offenses. The arrest occurred after a performance at the Globen Arena.

Snoop was in Stockholm on the Pass The Puff European Tour, which is being co-headlined by Sean "Diddy" Combs.

According the reports, Snoop Dogg had finished his performance and was due to appear at an after party at the Scandic Anglais hotel in Stockholm, when police stopped his vehicle on the Centralbron bridge.

Police searched the car and found a small amount of narcotics, but would not specify the amount, or the type of drug that was found in the car, because it was unclear who the drugs belonged to, the AP reports.

According to police, Snoop Dogg and his passenger showed "clear signs" of being under the influence of drugs.

The rapper and a 23-year-old female companion were arrested around 1:30 am in what local reports labeled a "planned raid" and taken to a police station.

Snoop Dogg provided a urine sample and if the tests come back positive for drugs, Snoop could end up being fined.

Sources told that earlier in the evening, a hotel room was also raided, where another associate was arrested with a "carton" of cigarettes, that police claim contained marijuana.

Sweden has some of the harshest narcotics laws in Europe, but minor drug offenses are usually punished with fines.

Snoop was released about 4 hours after his arrest at 5:30 this morning and is scheduled to perform at the Oslo Spektrum in Olso, Norway this very evening.
