Rapper Snoop Dogg faces drugs and gun possession charges after being searched and arrested at a California airport.
Snoop Dogg was cleared of murder in 1996
Police allegedly uncovered a gun and a quantity of cannabis in the musician's car after they stopped him for parking in a loading area at Bob Hope Airport.
Snoop Dogg - real name Calvin Broadus - paid bail of $35,000 (£18,500) and is due to appear in court on 12 December.
Last month, a collapsible truncheon was discovered in his baggage as he was boarding a flight to New York.
The authorities in California have yet to press charges over the matter.
The rapper's lawyer Donald Eltra said there was "no basis" for the arrest, adding "we believe that once this is cleared up, all charges will be dismissed".
Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg was cautioned by police in London following a brawl at Heathrow Airport.
He was acquitted of murder in 1996 following the death of an alleged gang member who was killed by gunfire from the vehicle Snoop Dogg was travelling in.
The rapper was convicted in 1990 of cocaine possession and charged with gun possession after being stopped for a routine police check in 1993.
He pleaded guilty in exchange for three years' probation and a promise to make public service announcements denouncing violence.
