Snoop Sued for Onstage Beating...

Richard Monroe II, the 25-year-old Kent, Washington, man who claims he was "ruthlessly ... dragged, kicked, punched, jumped and otherwise severely beaten" by a swarm of men - including Snoop Dogg's bodyguards and several rappers — after jumping onstage at the White River Amphitheatre during a May 28 [2005] stop on the How the West Was One Tour, has filed a civil lawsuit against Snoop, the Game, Kurupt, Daz Dillinger and Soopafly.

Monroe's lawsuit, which was filed April 12 in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeks $22 million in punitive and compensatory damages for assault, battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

According to the lawsuit, Monroe was "beaten unconscious," and the attack continued "in spite of the fact that [Monroe] was incapacitated and clearly could not pose a threat."

Monroe's suit further alleges that several of his attackers humiliated him in front of thousands of concertgoers, by pouring "orange cups of liquid" on his body while he was lying on the stage's floor — an act that resulted in "severe emotional distress." The filing also claims that Monroe's alleged assailants ripped diamond studs from his ears and stole his watch, rings, cell phone and wallet.

Why did his dumb butt hop on stage? Security did their jobs. And how did he know everything that happened if he was incapacitated? Doesn't make sense at all.

^^I agree snoop dogg is a rapper and has alot of enemies from his former deathrow family so if some unknown person jumps on the stage and heads straight to snoop of course his security and posse are gonna do the first thing that comes to mind and protect him.The dude deserves NO money because his dumb ass should not have jumped on the stage.
