Life imitates art, which was imitating life in the first place. From the Baltimore Sun:
More than 30 people, including the actress known as "Snoop" from the Baltimore-based HBO series "The Wire," were arrested Thursday morning across the city and its surrounding counties in connection with a large-scale heroin and marijuana operation.
Raids were carried out in the pre-dawn hours by agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Baltimore police and a slew of other federal and state law enforcement agencies.Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, known for her drug-assassin character on "The Wire," was taken into custody at a downtown apartment on a state warrant, officials said.
The article notes that’s she’s had a “troubled” past, which is one way of putting it. She was convicted of second-degree murder when she was 14. Recently she ordered to testify at a murder trial, refused, and was arrested.
Her wiikipedia page notes that she got her nickname from a local drug dealer who said she reminded him of the dog in “Peanuts.” In related news, Baltimore drug dealers read "Peanuts."
