After an appearance in Sweden on Saturday night (July 25), Snoop Dogg was arrested by authorities for suspicion of use of narcotics. His vehicle was pulled over, and officers transported him to a police station where he was ordered to take a drug test. While in the back of the cop car, the rapper recorded a video message, which was posted to Instagram on Sunday (July 26).

“[N-word] as got me in the back of police car right now in Sweden, cuz,” Snoop said in the clip. “Pulled a n---- over for nothing, taking us to the station where I gotta pee in a cup for nothing. I ain’t did nothing. All I did was came to the country and did a concert. And now I gotta go to the police station, for nothing.”

Sweden boasts a zero-tolerance policy with regard to the use of drugs. The country criminalized marijuana back in 1988, leading to a lower use of cannabis among students compared to that of other European countries. And while Snoop maintained that he was not involved in any illegal activity, Daniel Nilsson, a spokesperson for the Swedish capital said that he seemed to be under the influence.

“Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg (whose car was pulled over) seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test,” he said, according to Swedish news site The Local.

Snoop has vowed not to return to Sweden on account of the arrest, after which he said drugs were not found and he was released.

“2 all my sweden fans U can blame YA police dept for never seeing me again in your beautiful country. ... And I’m still smokin,” he wrote.
