Badboy rapper Snoop Dogg faces imprisonment after police pounced on armed bodyguards escorting him to an awards show last night (24JUN03).

Whilst the GIN + JUICE singer performed at BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION AWARDS at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre officers arrested 13 men outside.

The police impounded a number of weapons, a bullet-proof vest and three vehicles, including an armoured truck.

Snoop, 32, was not questioned or charged but could face up to ten years in jail if it is proved he employed armed guards.

The star has previously served time for drug charges and, in April (03), escaped injury when three men opened fire on his entourage travelling on a Los Angeles highway, wounding a bodyguard.
