Apparantly, his entourage (of 30) tried to get into the 'First Class Lounge' (presumably Terraces) at LHR T1 - only Snoop and 2 others were on first class tickets. So it does indeed come down to:

Why!! It sounds like he acted like a jackass, so he should be treated like one.

Just conjecture. Rightly or wrongly, this often happens with celebrity entourages that have bodyguards. Someone touches someone else the wrong way and all hell breaks loose. And my claim about profiling at Heathrow is founded on my own experience.

I've got to stick up for N1120A here guys as I would concur with him. Snoop, despite his past gang life and continued pot usage, is a pretty good guy and gives a lot back to his community. Does he hang out with some unsavory types? Yeah, porbably. Has he reformed his gang ways? yeah, he has. Does he care about his kids and take care of them? Absolutely.

I have a feeling that most likely someone in his entourage caused the issue and it ended up getting out of hand and he got involved. I have to ask what in the world he needs with an entourage of 30 people but that is the hip hop culture and I'll never completely understand it.

I would have loved to have been there to here the Brits completely confused bu "Fooshizzle my Nizzle, y'all. These bobbies ain't sheet but hoes and tricks!"

From Reuters:

A British Airways spokesman told the Daily Mirror: "There was an incident involving a group of passengers at our lounge where some passengers were rude and abusive to our staff and that is something we do not tolerate."

And quite rightly so!

True. And I applaud that, except for the fact that he "loaded" his son's teams with all the talant in the league, which he formed himself so he could make all the rules to his favor. I guess you missed that part of the reports....  

And even with his attempt at the the good deeds, it still does not over-shadow the fact that there have been many other news reports of his "less than family-man" ways.

IMO, he's a thug.

The league bears his name, but is actually run by a Florida group called Access Sports and Entertainment. As far as him "loading" his son's teams, you know that is bollocks.

Like it or not, all celebrities get special treatment and financial and social gain from their status. In some cases, the special treatment is actually warranted, given the security issues that go along with being a celebrity

I'll give you that. It does seem that his gang activities are in fact behind him, and he is promoting a better upbringing for kids now with his efforts towards the football stuff, but it still doesn't let him off the hook for his, and his entorage's actions at LHR. (even though we don't know what really happened yet, it does appear that he is the cause)

They should have booked the whole lot of them into Heathrow Police Station.

Pathetic. An "entourage" (oh please, it was a mob) of individuals with no manners or any dignity who when not being able to accept rules smashed bottles of alcohol instead as presumably a show of strength and itimidation? Oh please (!)

It's a shame society doesn't punish more harshly such people.

If his entourage is such a large group, why wouldn't he just charter? Proves he's missing some gray matter.

Whilst I've never appreciated the whole 'rap star' image, I had no idea these people behave like complete idiots when they're off camera as well as in their music videos and TV appearances. I'm pleased they were arrested and will no longer be able to travel with British Airways. The fact some people think such behaviour is acceptable in an airport of all places is beyond belief.

I can't relate to any comments suggesting there was a racial element to the incident. I find BA and BAA to be completely non-racist organisations and LHR a very multi-cultural and tolerant place amongst staff and passengers alike.

He was convicted (true it was a long time ago) of possession of Cocaine with intent to sell. He also drove the vehicle that his bodyguard fired from to shoot and kill a rival gang member. His million dollar lawyers got him off on self defense even though a witness stated that the killed man was walking away from the vehicle when he was shot. Essentially he was an accomplice to a murder because someone was a rival gang member. If it was anyone else he would be locked up.

But for security to be involved, something would of happened, and as noted by a friend of mine in another thread, LHR BAA is one of the most multi national employers in London. I do not see a security official man handling someone, or starting a fight because of a persons colour etc. THEY would of been doing something to warrant security presence.

I agree.

" Witness Ronan Keating gave this account: "There were all these huge . . . men smashing up display cabinets and throwing people around. I saw Snoop Dogg on the ground, with four riot police trying to put him in handcuffs. His minders were throwing bottles at people. There were 15 riot vans and eight police cars outside, with dog-sniffer units. They were throwing the policemen around like pillows. Then the police used pepper spray on them." Snoop and friends were freed the next day, but the concert in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he was trying to go when all this happened, was canceled. They're facing charges of "violent disorder" and "affray," which apparently means people thought they could get hurt. Since seven cops suffered minor injuries, I guess they were right."
