Everyone's favorite Dogg (and sometimes-Lion) was stopped by police at an Italian Airport on Saturday, for carrying too much money in his Louis Vuitton luggage. How much is too much? Well, according to the European Union, travelers may only take 10,000 euros ($10,986.00) across their borders and Snoop had in excess of 40 times that amount, around $422,000.

Snoop's lawyer had this to say: "We clarified everything from a legal point of view. The money came from concerts he had performed around Europe. There was no crime; it was just an administrative infraction." They returned half of the cash, which, if we can all do a little math means that he still traveled with far more money than regulations allow. Italian authorities said they will hold onto it until an appropriate fine is decided upon.

This is the second time in recent memory Snoop has run into trouble with the law while in Europe, just last week he was stopped in Sweden on suspicion of drug use. The rapper denied the allegations after he was taken to a Police station and forced to take a drug test, but this isn't the first time something like this has been alleged either.

"They took me down there, made me pee in a cup. They didn’t find shit," he said in a video posted soon after the incident. That is either the funniest lie he has ever told or Sweden's drug testing needs a massive overhaul.
