Snoop Dogg arrested during a drug raid? Wait a minute, it wasn’t the Dogg father; it was Snoop from the hit HBO series The Wire. Between Snoop Dogg, Snoopy and Snoop (Felicia Pearson) it gets confusing after a while. I mean I was easily mislead, thinking the rapper Snoop Dogg was arrested, glad that’s all cleared up. Let’s get into why Snoop from The Wire was sent to jail, shall we?

If you are like me you worshiped at the altar of The Wire. For my money it is one of the best shows to ever be on TV. For those who didn’t see it, it was a very gritty, dark often times disturbing look at the drug trade in Baltimore and the cops that fight it. It showed the ongoing battle between the police and the dealers as they fought to control the streets. Felicia Pearson aka Snoop appears in in a few seasons of the show as an enforcer and hitman err, I guess that would be hitwoman. She was cold, chilling and brilliant in her performance.

Pearson, I mean Snoop, was arrested last Thursday during a drug raid where more than 30 other people were rounded up during a sweep by the Baltimore police. Pearson who was a drug dealer before landing her role on The Wire claims she is innocent and that she is being singled out because of her affiliation with The Wire.

I don’t know if Felicia Pearson went back to selling drugs or not after the show was over. I do know that she appears to have just gotten another acting gig after The Wire wrapped more than three years ago. That is long time to be sitting around with nothing but time on your hands. It sounds like Snoop was hanging with some pretty rough people and anytime you affiliate with people who are breaking the law you run the risk of being lumped in with them. If you are some kind of celebrity (even if only the most minor way) that can actually hurt you in today’s world because many people will want to make an example of you.

If she was really involved in this heroin and drug selling ring, I’m not shocked. She was brilliant on the show, but every day we see people make it out their troubled youth only to get success and go back there and find trouble. If Snoop really wasn’t involved I hope she continues to steer clear of it and works hard to never go back there. Pearson says she is ready to fight the charges and prove her innocence. I guess now we just wait and see what happens. If she is found innocent, I hope she packs her stuff and moves away from this ugly past so she can focus on building a life that is separate from it and spend her money on better things than lawyers.
