Snoop Dogg has accepted responsibility for using "threatening words or behavior" in a brawl last month at Heathrow airport.

The 34-year-old rapper, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, appeared at Heathrow police station and "accepted a caution for a Section Four Public Order Act matter, using threatening words or behavior," police said Thursday.

A caution means a person has accepted responsibility for the offense, and a record will be made. No further action will be taken, police said.

Snoop and five other men were arrested on charges of violent disorder and starting a brawl, and spent the night in jail after trouble flared when some members of the rapper's party were denied entry to British Airways' first-class lounge.

Seven officers received minor injuries — mainly cuts and bruises — and one suffered a fracture to the hand.

Five others arrested in the disturbance were expected to appear at the police station later in the day.

British Airways has banned Snoop from future travel on the airline, it said last month.
