Snoop Dogg's Wife Arrested For Suspicion Of Drunk Driving

FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) -- Police say the wife of rapper Snoop Dogg has been arrested in California's Orange County for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Fullerton police Lt. Craig Brower says officers stopped 32-year-old Shante (Shahn-taye) Broadus of Sherman Oaks about 12:15 a.m. Saturday and took her to jail. She was cited and then released pending a court appearance.

Brower says nobody else was in the car but he didn't have any other details.

Broadus and Snoop Dogg - whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr. - were married in 1997 and have three children.

A message left with Snoop Dogg's publicist was not immediately returned.

    This is not news. I saw on the news where R.Kelley was that's news. Snoop Doggs wife getting arrested for drunk driving is not news. however if she had an accident and hurt someone, I could see that its news.
