Snoop Dogg caught with several joints in Texas

EL PASO, Texas

Hudspeth County sheriff's office said in a statement that Snoop Dogg, whose name is Calvin Broadus, was arrested Saturday at the Sierra Blanca highway checkpoint and cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor typical in cases involving small amounts of marijuana.

County Judge Becky Dean Walker says paraphernalia citations are typically resolved by a no contest plea and a mailed-in fine of up to $500.

The artist's agent didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.

Country singer Willie Nelson was arrested in November 2010 for marijuana possession at that same checkpoint.
