Snoop Dogg is facing a minor drug charge in Texas after border agents said they found several joints on the rapper's tour bus.

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

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

The artist's agent did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

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