Gangsta rapper Snoop Dogg has been cautioned for affray under Section 4 of the Public Order Act for "use of threatening words or behaviour" during an incident last month at Heathrow airport, the BBC reports.

Dogg and five of his entourage spent a night in the cells after allegedly taking exception to an airline staff's refusal to let them enjoy a Heathrow Terminal 1 VIP lounge while en route to South Africa with British Airways. They subsequently "clashed with officials" and then "became abusive and pushed police officers" called to control the disturbance.

The men were bailed, continued their journey and returned voluntarily to receive their cautions. They are "expected to go to the west London police station to answer bail later on Thursday", according to a police spokesman.

Dogg and his posse have also been banned from BA "for the foreseeable future", the BBC notes.

In related attack celebrity news, Naomi "Don't You Know Who I am?" Campbell is expected in a NY court next month on a felony rap after allegedly beating her housekeeper with a jewel-encrusted portable device.

Fellow clotheshorse May "Air Rage" Andersen was recently chucked out of the US for not having the proper visa. The fact that she "slapped and wrestled" a flight attendant while en route from the Netherlands to Miami might have also had something to do with it. ®
