Italy Just Took About a Quarter Million of Cash From Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg has been in trouble with the law before, but mostly for, y'know, that green stuff the guy loves so much. This weekend the rapper had a run-in with the Italian police for...being too rich?

Snoop was apparently carrying $422,820 (supposedly to pay band members) through an airport in Calabria, which, based on Italian law, is a total no-no.

The most cash anyone can carry without declaring it in the country is $11,000. Snoop's hundreds of thousands are now being held in Italy. It's under investigation and it's unclear whether he'll get the dough back. Guess he really dropped it like it's hot, huh?
