America's favorite stoner rapper Snoop Dogg was busted on suspicion of DWI Saturday night after a concert in Uppsalla, Sweden, which is 45 miles due north of Stockholm.

According to a police spokesman, "Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg [whose car was pulled over] seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He was arrested and taken to the police station for a urine test."

In one of several video communiques, Snoop reported: "In the police station… doing a report on me, cuz… profile, racial profile… they came and snatched me out of my car… I'm in Sweden right now."

In another, he stated: "I made it through. They took me down there. They made me pee in a cup. Didn't find shit. No case, no nothing..." He concluded with this curious comment:

'Like Mr. Farrakhan says, it's better to be searched and found with nothing than to not be searched at all.'

Via Instagram, Snoop warned, "U can blame YA police dept for never seeing me again you in your beautiful country… Fuck the police."

This was not Snoop Dogg's first run-in with Swedish authorities. He was similarly stopped and harassed in Stockholm several years ago and previously arrested for marijuana in next-door Norway.  

Snoop has four other marijuana arrests on his record: two in California, and one each in New York and Texas.

He's currently in the midst of a European tour that ends in the UK on Aug. 8.
