I was talking to my buddy from Alabama last night when he mentioned that "Snoop" from The Wire had been arrested. So today, after taping a segment for the AFRO/First Edition political show, I asked host Sean Yoes about it, since he played Lt. Brent Hoskins on the same show.
"Actually," he said, "I wrote about it for Black America Web today."
'The Wire' Star's Arrest Imitates Her Real Life
Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Life imitates art far more often than art imitates life.”
Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, who portrayed the diminutive but cold-blooded drug assassin with the same name on HBO’s “The Wire,” has unfortunately lived out the life she played on cable and has landed in legal trouble again
As much as I enjoyed her authenticity, I had hoped that the dope game was a life she could finally leave behind.
