The Wire's Snoop Arrested in Real Drug Raid

Felicia Snoop Pearson HBO

In an unfortunate case of life imitating art, Felicia Pearson—best known for her role as the pint-sized mumble-mouthed drug-dealing assassin Snoop on HBO's The Wire—was busted in Baltimore along with more than 30 other people during an early hours drug raid this morning.

The actress was taken into custody at a downtown apartment on a state warrant, reports the Baltimore Sun, after predawn raids were carried out across the city by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies as part of a five-month drug investigation revolving around a large-scale heroin and marijuana operation.

This, however, isn't the first time the 30-year-old has been in trouble with the law. When she was 14, Pearson was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to two eight-year terms, but was released after serving just over six years behind bars.
