‘Snoop’ of ‘The Wire’ Arrested in Drug Raid

Actress Felicia “Snoop” Pearson gained fame and a strong fanbase following her role as a tough drug assassin in HBO’s classic series “The Wire..”

Pearson was arrested this week in a drug raid in Baltimore…

Pearson, 30, was one of 60 people arrested in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s heroin and marijuana sweep.

For someone who had to overcome an early life of violence and prison, Pearson’s story offered inspiration to wannabe actors worldwide, since she was not a professional actress when she took the role of the cold-hearted killer.
