Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg has been charged with sale or transportation of marijuana and possession of a gun yesterday, following his arrest at a Los Angeles airport last year.

The rapper, real name Calvin Broadus, was arrested last year after police found a gun and marijuana in his car after it parked too long in a passenger loading area at Burbank airport.

Broadus could face up to four years in prison if he is convicted on both charges. This isn't the first time the rapper has faced the wrong end of the law--he already has a 1990 felony conviction for possession of drugs for sale.

Last November, Broadus was charged with possession of a deadly weapon after he was caught carrying a collapsible baton through airport security, and in March he was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden, for suspected narcotics use.

He is due in court today for an arraignment.
