Snoop Dogg to Pick Up Trash in Sentence

SANTA ANA, Calif. - Snoop Dogg will spend 160 hours picking up trash at an Orange County park as part of his sentence for carrying an illegal weapon in an airport last year, authorities said Thursday.

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, his attorney, Donald Etra, said.

"He's glad to make a contribution to Orange County," the attorney said.

Dogg chose the park site from a list of probation-approved community service sites and will be supervised by a park ranger, county Deputy District Attorney Andre Manssourian said. A Superior Court judge approved the park service on Wednesday. Etra and county officials declined to release the name of the park, citing concerns that media and fans might interfere with the work.

No date was given for him to start or complete the service, but he wants to perform it as quickly as possible, his attorney said.
