SNOOP DOGG has pleaded not guilty to a drugs possession charge in an OHIO court on Tuesday (October 30).

The rapper, real name Calvin Broadus, was not in Oberlin court to enter a plea relating to marijuana found by police during a traffic stop earlier this month. His lawyer, Jay Milano, pleaded on his behalf. A pre-trial hearing has been set for December 11. Milano said he didn’t except Snoop to appear then.

As previously reported on NME.COM, police pulled Snoop‘s bus over on October 17 outside of Cleveland, Ohio for speeding. Police with sniffer dogs found six bags of marijuana weighing about 200 grams in the cargo hold of the bus.

Snoop was charged with possession, a minor crime which carries a fine of $100. However, he was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, which carries a maximum sentence of $250 and 30 days in prison.
