Snoop's party is to then said to have moved to a duty-free shop where it is alleged they threw bottles of whisky on the floor and argued with staff. Police were (Advertisement) called and were escorting the group away from the scene when a further disturbance broke out, Scotland Yard said. Seven officers received minor injuries - mainly cuts and bruises - while one suffered a fracture to the hand. A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: "The party was told that they would not be permitted to board their flight and officers then attempted to direct the group to baggage reclaim. "A number of the group became abusive and pushed officers." Six men aged in their 30s, including Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, 34, were arrested on charges of violent disorder and affray and held at two west London police stations. They had been due to board a flight to Johannesburg, South Africa, before the row broke out.
