Snoop Dog ban on entering the UK lifted.

April 27, 2008

Snoop Dogg is free to roam the United Kingdom, thanks to a senior immigration judge who officially overturned the rapper’s ban in the country yesterday (April 23). Senior immigration judge George Warr based his decision to lift the ban on an earlier ruling, which found that there was no evidence that Snoop Dogg had been responsible for any public disorder, nor did he initiate it. The decision is in contrast with reports over an incident at Heathrow Airport in 2006, during a mass brawl between Snoop Dogg’s entourage and airport security. A DVD film of the fracas features the 37-year-old Snoop Dogg entertaining young children, just before the brawl. Snoop Dogg, who was given a caution by authorities, also did not retaliate against a police officer, who is seen shoving the rapper twice in the footage. Upon viewing the DVD, Bird concluded that the Heathrow incident was “precipitated by decisions made by BA staff and the police.”
