Rapper Snoop Dogg accused police in Sweden of a "racial profile" after they detained him on suspicion of drug use following a Saturday concert near Stockholm.
National police spokesman Fredrik Wallen said a police patrol in the city of Uppsala, north of the capital, stopped a car in which Snoop Dog was a passenger. Police questioned him at a local station and tested him for suspected drug use.
Snoop Dogg posted an Instagram video from the police station where he said authorities were "doing a report on me, cuz" and then said it was a case of racial profiling.
"Profile, racial profile," he said. "Came and snatched me out my car. Brought me down here. I’m in Sweden right now ... I’ll never be back to ya’ll country. It’s been real.”
Previous to that clip he posted a video showing him in a squad car with lights flashing in the background — and he's clearly upset.
“N***** got me in the back of police car right now in Sweden, cuz,” he said. “Pulled a n**** over for nothing, takin' us to the station where I gotta go 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!”
After being released, Snoop Dogg posted another Instagram video: “Message to my fans n fam!!”
“I know a lot of y'all concerned about me. I made it through," he said. "They took me down there, made me pee in a cup, didn’t find s**t. No case, no nothin'. But like Minister Farrakhan say, it’s better to be searched and not found with nothin' than not to be searched at all. F*** y’all!”
Wallen said Sunday the rapper was later released and was free to leave the country. Test results would not be available for "some time," he said.
