CORSICANA, Texas (AP) - Two people on hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg's tour bus are facing marijuana possession charges after being arrested by Texas Department of Public Safety troopers today.
DPS spokesman Charlie Morgan says 27-year-old Ethan Calhoun and 26-year-old Kevin Barkey were arrested in Corsicana on Interstate 45, as the bus headed to Dallas for a concert.
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was on the bus and was NOT arrested.
A secretary said Snoop's agent had no comment. Morgan said members of a commercial vehicle inspection team pulled the bus over because the vehicle had an expired registration sticker.
Troopers searched the bus after they said they smelled marijuana and found two ounces of it.
The Corsicana Daily Sun says the men appeared before a justice of the peace and were released after each posting $1,500 bond. They face fines of up to $2,000 and six months in jail if convicted.
