Britain lifts entry ban for Snoop Dogg

SNOOP DOGG has won a legal battle to gain entry to the U.K. – three years after government officials banned him from Britain. The hip-hop star, real name Calvin Broadus, incurred the wrath of immigration officials in 2006 when he was arrested following a fracas at London’s Heathrow Airport. The following year (07), he was denied entry into the country, with authorities arguing his previous convictions for drugs and firearms offenses made him a threat.
