Snoop and His Posse Accused of Battery by Fan

Published: 2005-06-06
Hip hop fan Richard Monroe, 24, says rap star Snoop Dogg and other artists beat him up after he climbed on stage during a recent performance of Snoop's song "Gin and Juice." The alleged incident happened Saturday at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, WA, just outside of Seattle.

The assault was captured on video, where it looked as if Monroe appeared behind Snoop and placed his hand on the rapper's shoulder before being beaten down by bodyguards and other people onstage. Monroe claimed he was robbed of his wallet, rings, and other possessions during the fracas.

Police are investigating the situation but have not yet laid charges. It is still unclear whether Snoop Dogg participated in the actual beating.
