Update: 'Wire' Creator David Simon On Felicia "Snoop" Pearson's Arrest

Update: The Wire's creator, David Simon, just wrote an open letter to the world about Felicia's arrest.

First, he reminds us that she's entitled to the presumption of innocence, and that the last time she was arrested on similar charges, they were later found to be unwarranted and were subsequently dropped.

Read his full letter here.

Anyone who knows me, knows I love the 'Wire.' It's one of my favourite shows of all time. Well, Snoop's in trouble again... and this time, not on the show.

Felecia "Snoop" Pearson, who played a hit-woman on the show, has been arrested as part of a huge drug raid in Baltimore.

She was taken into custody with 30 others connected to a large heroin and marijuana ring. Police had been investigating the operation for five months.

No word on any charges...
