'Wire' Actress Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson Denied Bail
"The Wire" actress Felicia Pearson has been denied bail following her drug bust on Thursday.
The star, who played narcotics dealer Snoop in the hit TV series, was arrested along with 37 other suspects during a raid by police in Baltimore, Maryland on an alleged drug ring.
During a hearing on Friday, a Baltimore Circuit Court judge ordered she be held without bail on charges of conspiring to sell heroin, in addition to counts of aiding and abetting.
Pearson is one of 22 suspects facing state charges following the raid.
The news comes hours after The Wire creator David Simon spoke out in defence of the former castmember, insisting her tough background was to blame for her legal woes.
