Snoop Dogg avoids jail time and agrees to pick up trash.
Snoop Dogg will pick up trash and perform other park maintenance as part of his sentence for carrying a collapsible baton at John Wayne Airport last year. Snoop Dogg said the baton was a prop for a video he was filming in New York.
The rapper, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr., will do "everything from raking leaves to painting benches" in order to meet the 160 hours of community service he was ordered to perform, said his attorney, Donald Etra.
"He's glad to make a contribution to Orange County," the attorney said.
Snoop chose the Orange County park site from a list of probation-approved community service sites and will be supervised by a park ranger, county prosecutor Andre Manssourian said.
A judge approved the park service Wednesday. County officials declined to release the name of the park, citing concerns that media and fans might interfere.
His sentence included community service, three years' probation, $1,000 in fines and court costs, and a $10,000 donation to a county charity for troubled children.
No date was given for him to start or complete the service, his attorney said.
