Rapper Snoop Dogg, aka Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., took to social media to complain after he was stopped and arrested in Sweden on drug charges following a concert there on Saturday.

"Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg (whose car was pulled over) seemed to be under the influence of narcotics," said Daniel Nilsson, a police spokesman for the central Uppsala region, according to The Local. "He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test."

"The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left," said Nilsson.

The rapper posted a video on Instagram describing the experience, according to The Independent, but it was perhaps too far over the edge language-wise for publication.

"They pulled a n***** over for nothing, taking me to the police station where I've got to pee in a cup, for nothing," said the rapper. "Sorry to all the fans in Sweden, I'll never be back in this country; you can blame your police chief and the people who run your police department."

Broadus also charged that he was pulled over because of racial profiling.

"They took me down there, made me pee in a cup. They didn’t find s***," Broadus said in another video, according to Variety. "It's better to be searched and not found with nothing than not to be searched at all."

Variety reported it was the second time in three years that Broadus has been dinged for drug use overseas. In July 2012, he was barred from entering Norway for two years after a small amount of marijuana was found.

According to Swedish law, anyone law enforcement suspects of being under the influence of drugs can be ordered to take a compulsory urine test, noted The Local. That person could stand trial and face criminal charges with a positive test.
