'The Wire's 'Snoop' feels 'targeted' by Baltimore police

Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, the Baltimore actress whose own rough upbringing was the inspiration for her character on The Wire, believes that background caused her to be arrested last Thursday during a large-scale Baltimore drug raid. “Felicia Pearson has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty,” said her rep in a statement. “In Felicia’s case, she feels that she is being targeted not only because of her portrayal of the memorable character “Snoop” on HBO’s critically acclaimed series The Wire; but also because of where she is from in Baltimore … where high crime rates, drug use and violence are the norm.”

Pearson hopes to return to Philadelphia soon, where her rep says she is filming three movies. “[She] wants her friends and fans to know that she is keeping her head up, shoulders back and that she is prepared to fight these new charges against her.”

    STF ‘SNOOP’. You got caught. Suck it up and deal with it. A 6 month wiretap isn’t simply about you. You did something wrong, hung with the wrong crowd and got caught. This was much bigger than catching an actor who was a piece of crap person, playing a piece of crap person. Good grief!
