After a run-in with authorities in Sweden last week, Snoop Dogg was stopped by police at an Italian airport on Friday (July 31)... and had a lot of his cash seized.

According to Reuters, the rapper was preparing to board a private plane bound for Britain, with $422,000 in cash in tow. Snoop was stopped and had half the cash seized.

In the European Union, the maximum amount of undeclared cash one can take on board a plane is 10,000 euros ($10,986.00).

Snoop will have to pay a fine. Half of his cash is being held by Italian authorities until the amount of the fine is determined, said the report.

"We clarified everything from a legal point of view," said Andrea Parisi, Snoop's lawyer. "The money came from concerts he had performed around Europe. There was no crime; it was just an administrative infraction."
