U.S. rapper, Snoop Dogg, was briefly arrested in Sweden on suspicion of using illegal drugs, Entertainment Weekly reported on Sunday.

The 43-year-old rapper was stopped by police in Uppsala, the fourth largest city of Sweden north of the capital Stockholm, after giving a concert in the area on Saturday night.


“Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg [whose car was pulled over] seemed to be under the influence of narcotics,” a police spokesman for Sweden’s Uppsala region said, according to Agence France-Presse, as cited by The Guardian.

“He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test” the spokesman added.

However in a series of Instagram posts, Snoop claimed that the arrest was due to racial profiling and said he wouldn’t come back to Sweden.
