Snoop barred from UK
13:30 15 May 2006
Snoop Dogg has been barred from entering the UK - ever again.
The 'Starsky and Hutch' actor was slapped with the ban after he and his minders were involved in a "mini-riot" at London's Heathrow airport last month.
The incident occurred when the 34-year-old - real name Calvin Broadus - and several other members of his entourage were denied entry to a British Airways' first-class lounge.
A brawl ensued and seven police officers were left with minor injuries, including cuts and bruises. One suffered a fractured hand.
Snoop had previously been given a police caution over the incident and was banned from flying with British Airways.
According to reports, he has now been told his criminal record in his native America - which includes drug and gun offences - bars him from returning to Britain.
A source said: "The Home Office is taking a tough line on him."
