But his bail conditions mean he'll be back
US rap star Snoop Dogg is to fly out of the UK today (April 28), two days after he was arrested at London‘s Heathrow Airport.

Snoop Dogg will have return to London to visit a police station in mid-May as part of his bail conditions. He has not been charged.
Five other US men who were arrested have also been bailed.
Seven police officers were left with minor injuries after the disturbance – which involved 30 people – happened in a business lounge at Terminal 1, according to the the police.
Police explained that the group were told they could not board their flight and “became abusive and pushed officers”.
According to BBC News, one officer sustained a fractured hand, while the others mainly suffered cuts and bruises.
“Police were called at 6pm last night to reports of a disturbance involving 30 people in a business lounge at Terminal 1,” a Scotland Yard spokesman said. “The party was told that they would not be permitted to board their flight and officers then attempted to direct the group to baggage reclaim. A number of the group became abusive and pushed officers.”
Snoop and the other five men were then taken into custody at two west London police stations.
The rapper and his entourage were due to travel to Johannesburg in South Africa, but the delay meant he was forced to cancel a gig in the city as part of the country’s Freedom Day celebrations.
A British Airways spokeswoman said the party have been banned from the airline because of the incident.
