Snoop Dogg handed himself into the police . The rapper surrendered himself to authorities at the Orange County Jail monday morning after a warrant was issued for his arrest five days ago on charges of possessing a deadly weapon. Snoop arrived in a dark purple Porsche Carrera accompanied by a driver and a bodyguard. His attorney, Donald Etra, said: "He was handled extremely well by the Orange County Sheriff's Dept. "His spokesperson, Meredith O'Sullivan, said: "Snoop was promptly released on bail and welcomes an expedited trial which will reveal that these charges are completely unwarranted. "After being booked for the offence and posing for a mug shot Snoop, 35, reportedly left the jail in high spirits and cheerfully signed autographs for waiting fans. Bail was set at $150,000. If convicted the rapper could face three years in jail. The hip-hop star was stopped at the John Wayne Airport, in Santa Ana, on September 27 after a 20-inch extendable baton was found in his laptop computer bag. Snoop claimed he did not know it was illegal and was going to use it as a prop in his video. The baton was confiscated and the rapper was allowed on his flight to San Francisco. But on October 26 Snoop was stopped by police for a traffic violation at the Bob Hope Airport, in Burbank, and an unlicensed gun and a quantity of marijuana were found during a search of his vehicle. The rapper was charged with possession of a firearm and transportation of a controlled substance and released on $35,000 bail. He is next due in court on December 4.
