Famous American rap singer Snoop Dogg left Sweden in a huff after being brought to a narcotics test on the drive after his concert in Uppsala Saturday night. The musician was a passenger in a car which was pulled out by traffic police for a regular check, according to central Uppsala region police spokesman Daniel Nilsson.
"Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test," said Nilsson.
The hip-hop celebrity was held under arrest briefly and left after the drug test was conducted. Results were not immediately available.
Snoop Dogg expressed his irritation on his social media accounts, vowing he would ever visit Sweden again.

The rap star also stated that it was a racist assault from the side of the police. Uppsala police denied such accusations:
"No, we don’t work like that. It’s just nonsense," said Christer Nordström, spokesperson for Uppsala police to Aftonbladet daily.
Sunday, Snoop Dogg appeared at the Black Sea Jazz Festival in Batumi, Georgia, where he was embraced with open arms, as it appears on the festival Facebook page, which reposted a video from Snoop Dogg Instagram account.
