US rapper Snoop Dogg has been released from police custody following a fracas at London's Heathrow Airport.

The delay means he has been forced to cancel a gig in Johannesburg on Thursday night as part of South Africa's Freedom Day celebrations.

He left Heathrow police station after 1700 BST after being bailed to return to a West London police station in May.

The star and five others were arrested on suspicion of affray and violent disorder and held in custody overnight.

Police said 30 people were involved in a disturbance in a business lounge at Terminal 1 on Wednesday.

Seven police officers were left with minor injuries after the incident, which is alleged to have ensued after members of the rapper's entourage objected to being turned away from the facility.

From the Associated Press:
The rapper and his party were denied entry into the lounge because some of the entourage was flying first class, while other members of the party were flying economy class, said Richard Goodfellow, a spokesman for British Airways, which runs the lounge.
"They became very rude and abusive to our staff and we took the decision to offload the party and refuse them travel," Goodfellow said. "That sort of behavior will not be tolerated."
British Airways said they have sent letters to the rapper and his party telling them that they are banned from all future travel on the airline, the spokesman added.

Couldn't happen to a better group! They cause trouble EVERYWHERE they go. Good for British Airways, and hopefully their OneWorld partner AA will follow up on that as well. Such behavior should be treated punitively by other carriers as well.  devil   gnasher   hissyfit   mad   yell

Absolutely. Casinos have nationwide shared databases of known trouble makers. I think airlines should do the same.

Stars always want to be treated differently. They don't want to go through security, they want to clear customs privately, they want you to bend the rules for them because they are famous.

First class pax can have guests in the lounge, but most of the time, those guests can't be booked on the flight in a coach seat. I have seen exceptions made when a child/nanny situation is involved, but usually the nanny is in J, not Y, and I still don't like the exception.

What's funny is that I am pretty sure that BA would allow them all in had they agreed to buy day passes for the Y pax. At least most USA carriers do that. Does BA have a different policy?

Word to snoop, next time, if you must fly with an entourage of hangers own and leaches, treat em right! Buy em F seats! Or at least J...  Wink

Not AFAIK, but I may well be wrong. Though getting 30 (no doubt huge) entourage members into the lounge could be a struggle!

I thought it was 30 people involved, including everyone (good guys and gangstas). I guess I misread it.

But 30 day passes is only like $1000. Snoop smokes more than that in a day.

At CO, books of 10 passes are $250.

On that note... one time I was going through security at LAS and suddenly I realized the person in front of me was Mike Tyson. He and his girlfriend waiting in the regular security queue with the rest of us... no elite line -- nothing.... AND he made the scanner beep. The 50-something year old, skinny security screener looked mighty silly giving Mike Tyson a pat down....  Silly

LOL, no private jet I guess... actually I had read somewhere that he had almost gone broke and had to do corny stuff like "Girls Gone Wild"... to generate income.

so he actually may not be "Private Jet" rich...

We don't have day passes at BA (thankfully). You are either entitled to lounge use by the class of travel (F/J) or by having the correct Oneworld membership level.

On BA the guests of ticketed First passengers can be in any class as long as they are flying BA that day. So if three of the gang were ticketed in First then they could have taken in another three Y passengers as guests.

Yes. BA don't do day passes. If you aren't in J/F and aren't OW Sapphire/Emerald you are SOL....unless you have Qantas Club membership  Wink

Makes sense. The more I thought about, the more I thought that you could probably have a guest on the same flight. At least I believe NZ allowed a friend of mine in Y to go to the club with another friend flying J on the same flight.

So Snoop was afraid with only an equal number of Y pax to his F pax that he wouldn't have enough people around him and someone might sneak up and put a cap in his ass? Such is life as a rap star...  Wink

Didn't know BA had not day passes at all. Is that purely a USA club thing to allow for day passes, or is BA more the exception than the rule?

That's cause Mike Tyson is broke, he was probably flying coach.

What is suprising is, stoned people are usually non-violent. They must have been heavy on the Gin-n-juice in their gobletts on the flight to LHR.

You know, as another example of how the media can screw things up...

WJW-DT here in Cleveland included the story in tonight's 10:00 newscast, however, in this case the anchor said "heath-row officials have now banned snoop and his gang from ever using that airport again..."

I'm like "what?"... I have half a mind to walk to their studios and set them straight  Smile

How about Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. I have been around the streets of Philadelphia, and there is plenty of garbage there. I think if Snoop Dog ever sets foot there/ or when he does, I think that that will be the biggest garbage crisis in Phili history!!!

Damn, my one geography professor is teaching a class over there (in London); it's a 10 day long course/trip where we learn about the geography of London. And... he selects BA for the trip every time because LHR is better situated for transportation to U. London than LGW. The students stay at the U. london dorms as opposed to a hotel. I am thinking of doing that sometime; the trip is $1900 bucks, but it's an additional $7 or 800 if you take the class... still, given that BA "took out the trash," I will fly them anytime if/when I go to England  Smile
