Snoop Dogg Cleared Of Fan Beating But Record Label Owes $449,400 In Damages

Snoop_Dogg Rapper Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, and his record label Doggystyle Records were sued over the brutal beating of a fan at a concert for $22 million dollars.  The jury cleared Snoop of any wrong doing but found the label at fault for $449,400 in damages, far less than what was sought.

Richard Monroe Jr. jumped on stage during a Snoop Dogg concert.  Okay, who does that and expects security not to beat them up? 

He had told a Santa Monica court he was "left for dead" by security at the gig and was also struck by Snoop Dogg personally.  He also told the court he thought Snoop Dogg had urged fans to join him on stage as he launched into "Gin and Juice" and Snoop hit him with a microphone with a knuckleduster-style handle.

The jury did not agree with him.  They cleared Snoop of all assault charges after watching video footage of the incident which showed performers and security staff involved in the struggle.  They did not believe Snoop personally owed Richard anything because Snoop testified he had gone straight to his tour bus after Richard had jumped on stage and was challenged by security.

The jury ruled his damages must be paid by Doggystyle Records, the label founded by Snoop and rapper Soopafly - whose real name is Priest Brooks and who also performed on the tour - and other unnamed parties.
