After he performed in Sweden Saturday night, Snoop Dogg says he was a victim of racial profiling when his car was pulled over and he was briefly detained. He videoed the entire ordeal and posted it on his Instagram yesterday. Snoop said he will never return to Sweden after this. A police spokesman told “People” magazine that none of this was racially motivated. Snoop was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over and according to the officer, Snoop showed signs that he was under the influence of drugs so they took him to the police station for a test. After about an hour, he was free to go. Results from those tests will take about two weeks and if they come back positive, the case will be handed offer to a prosecutor. But worst case scenario, Snoop will just be slapped with a fine.
