Man Files $20 Million Lawsuit Against Snoop Over Assault
Richard Monroe II, 25, is suing Snoop Dogg, The Game, Kurupt, Snoopafly and others for assault and battery in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Monroe alleges he was encouraged to come onstage and dance during a May 2005 concert featuring Snoop Dogg, The Game and Oowee.
After climbing onstage and attempting to put his arm around Snoop as the rapper performed his hit single "Gin and Juice," Monore, who stands 6'3, said over a dozen people, including Snoop Dogg, punched and kicked him on stage.
Monroe also stated that the rappers poured liquor on him, ripped out his earrings, stole his cell phone, watch and wallet.
"They beat me like a slave," Monroe said shortly after the incident. "It's horrible. They just went too far."
Monroe was treated at the Auburn Regional Medical Center for bruised ribs and a broken nose.
Fan accounts of the incident vary, with some bystanders claiming that Monroe attempted to rush toward the artists on stage.
