Rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned for life from British Airways flights.The infamous hip-hop star will never fly on the respected airline again after members of his 30-strong entourage sparked a mini riot at London's Heathrow airport on Wednesday (28.04.2006).The trouble started when economy ticket holders in the group tried to force their way into British Airway's exclusive first class lounge.An airline spokesman ranted: "This kind of behaviour is not tolerated.We are making sure none of this group will be allowed to travel with BA ever again. They are banned from now on."Special riot police were called to the incident and had to use pepper spray to calm down the violent and rowdy crew - seven officers were left hurt and one suffered a broken wrist.A witness who saw the fracas told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was a mini-riot. People were going berserk, smashing bottles, threatening airline staff and grappling with cops. There was smashed glass everywhere."

The 34-year-old rapper and five other men were arrested for violent disorder and affray and held at Heathrow police station.

They were released on bail later that day but have been ordered to return to Britain next month where they could face charges.
