Snoop Dogg 'stopped by Italian customs'

Snoop Dogg has reportedly had another run-in with European authorities.
The rapper was stopped on Saturday by financial police in southern Italy with 422,000 dollars (£270,000) in cash, well above the limit that can legally be transported across EU borders undeclared, news agency ANSA said.
The incident comes less than a week after Snoop Dogg was briefly stopped in Sweden on suspicion of drug use.
ANSA said half of the cash was impounded at the Lamezia Terme airport in Calabria under anti-money laundering codes. Travellers within the European Union are required to declare 10,000 euros (£7,030) or more in cash.
Snoop Dogg played in Calabria on Friday night and is scheduled to perform on Sunday at the Kendal Calling festival in England.
