Snoop Dogg arrested, now free on bail: Snoop Dogg poker tournament cancelled

Snoop Dogg was released on bail Thursday after a fracas he was involved in at Heathrow Airport injured seven police officers, his lawyers said.

After being detained overnight, the 34-year-old rapper was driven away from the airport’s police station, police said, while speaking on condition of anonymity in line with department policy. They did not give details of five other men arrested with him.

“Snoop has been released on bail,” said his attorney, Peter Binning. “He will return at a later date.”

London’s Metropolitan Police said officers responded late Wednesday to reports of a disturbance involving 30 people at British Airways’ first-class lounge.

The disturbance began after Snoop and his party were denied entry into the lounge because some were flying first class while others were flying economy class, said Richard Goodfellow, a spokesman for British Airways.

“They became very rude and abusive to our staff and we took the decision to ... refuse them travel,” Goodfellow said.

When officers told the group they wouldn’t be allowed to board their flight, “a number of the group became abusive and pushed officers,” a police spokeswoman said on the force’s customary condition of anonymity.

The six men were arrested on charges of “violent disorder and affray” — or creating a brawl or disturbance — and spent the night at London police stations. Police said all those arrested were U.S. citizens in their 30s.

The injured police officers received cuts, bruises and other minor injuries, the force said.

Meanwhile, the rapper was scheduled to host a single-day, $2 million prize pool, no-limit hold 'em tournament next Friday that has since been cancelled.

The Rapper's Challenge Texas Hold 'Em Tournament was supposed to take place on a casino ship departing from the Port of Miami of May 5th, 2006. The event was originally slated to occur the day Hurricane Wilma hit Miami.

Hold 'Em Productions, which puts on the tournament, claims on its web site that The Big Easy ship lost it's certification. Now they say this tournament will be held in November 2006 in the Bahamas, a three day event without any specific dates.
