Actress From The Wire Arrested In Drug Raid

Pearson Arrested

Bad news.

Actress Felicia "Snoop" Pearson of The Wire was arrested in a drug raid that resulted in more than sixty people being brought in!

The DEA declined to say what charges they were bringing against her, but we're sure we'll know soon enough.

This wasn't her first problem with the law either:

She was convicted of second-degree murder in a slaying committed when she was 14. She served five years of an eight-year sentence and was released in 2000.

Pearson was arrested on a minor drug charge in 2008 when police went to her home to pick her up for refusing to cooperate as a witness in the trial of Steven Lashley, who was accused of stabbing three men, killing one, in an adult-entertainment district in downtown Baltimore called "The Block."

It's such a shame to see someone get a chance for redemption and allegedly throw it away (innocent until proven guilty, yeah?). If we remember correctly, she did a FAB job on the show.

Not good at all.

    What do you mean "throw it away"? Do you really think she got offered tons roles? C'mon it's hollywood nobody gave a shit about her after the Wire.



  2. 2

    She took a life at 14. That's what I got from this story.

    Perez, don't pretend like you watched/understood The Wire. I just can't believe that someone with such bad taste in generally everything and an obsession with pop culture can truly appreciate a masterwork like The Wire. You shouldn't be allowed to watch it.

    Also, fuck you and your presumptuous comment about redemption. Snoop essentially played HERSELF on the show (it featured many non-actors) and most shows aren't automatic gateways to fame and success. Look at Lost. It was a huge hit, yet none of the actors are really working right now. What, did you think a born and bred thug is going to turn her life around because of one show? Hollywood doesn't work in such a magical way. It's a role not a life saving intervention. Grow up, you horse's ass.

    She looks like one of those creatures from that film 9 in that picture.

    typical west baltimore city trash …Nothing but gang violence, drugs, hookers, etc.. and trust me I know, I grew up like 30 minutes from the trash pit and it has been named most dangerous city in American twice

    So glad she got a second chance. Too bad the person she murdered didn't get that chance.

    She should be on the Bad Girls Club.

    Heres hoping she doesnt end up like her character did on the show. With that said, I'd like the mention that The Wire was the best show ever on television, and I have yet to see anything compare to it since its ended.

    God her character gave me the creeps on that show! So scary. I guess she really was playing herself.

    I went to Baltimore with my partner last year and we drove through parts of the ghetto. It looked just as poverty stricken and depressing as it did on the show. Really sad.

    I'm sure it was just weed. Ya know its just destroying the world so the DEA has got to protect us from all those violent, angry, weed smokers! whatever. . .
