The jury did find that Richard Monroe Jr. suffered serious injuries during one of Snoop's 2005 concerts near Seattle and awarded him roughly $440,000 in damages to be paid by a record label, another performer and others involved in the concert.

Jurors found that the Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, doesn't owe Monroe anything for a severe beating he sustained after jumping on stage.

Broadus was accused by Monroe's attorneys of hitting the man with a brass knuckle microphone. But a video shown during the trial didn't show Broadus striking Monroe.
