Trooper sues DPS over reprimand for Snoop Dogg snapshot



State Trooper Billy Spears, who received disciplinary counseling for allowing mega rapper Snoop Dogg to get a picture made with him, filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the Department of Public Safety this week.

Spears is alleging that the reprimand came for a trumped up issue that is not part of any written DPS policy. He claims in the suit he is being targeted in retaliation for a complaint he filed earlier against a fellow peace officer that did not sit well with superiors.

Spears was in his uniform working security on May 10 at Austin’s South by Southwest music festival when the rap star, who has had several run-ins with the law over illegal drug and gun possession, stopped to ask if he could get a picture with him.

Spears said yes and Calvin Broaddus, who goes by Snoop Dogg, eventually posted the picture on social media along with the caption, “Me n my deputy dogg.”

3. He's Right

 

Any law enforcement officer would agree to pose with any citizen if asked to do so. Spears is right. He's on somebody's enemies list.
