Snoop Dogg Arrested for Palms Park Killing 1993


On Aug. 25, 1993, Snoop Dogg was arrested on suspicion of being an accomplice in the killing of reputed gang member Philip Woldemariam in Woodbine Park in the Palms district of West Los Angeles. But Woldemariam was shot by Snoop's bodyguard, McKinley Lee. Snoop was charged with murder along with Lee as he was driving the vehicle from which the shooting had commenced. Snoop was defended by David Kenner, with his bodyguard McKinley Lee, while Sean Abrams (accompanying member in Snoop's vehicle) was defended by Johnnie Cochran. Both Snoop and Lee were acquitted. Lee was acquitted on grounds of self-defense, but Snoop Dogg remained entangled in the legal battles around the case for three years.
