Snoop Dogg Cleared of Charges in Crowd Injuries Lawsuit Following 2016 New Jersey Concert
Snoop Dogg can breathe a little easier now after being cleared in lawsuit against him stemming from a 2016 concert where fans were injured after a barricade collapsed.
Last August, while performing at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, 42 concertgoers were hurt when a railing in the front row broke, causing the fans and venue employees to fall. Three employees and 14 fans ended up suing Snoop and Wiz Khalifa, who was also a performer during the show.
While TMZ reports that Snoop is now clear, Khalifa’s team and Live Nation are still fighting the case. Snoop Dogg’s lawyers were able to get the charges dropped after his team said the rapper lives in California, while the suit was filed in Pennsylvania.
In related Snoop Dogg news, the rapper recently teamed up with Famous Brandz to launch his own line of smoking accessories called POUNDS. “POUNDS is my way of offering and sharing a premium smoking experience for any consumers. Whether you’re into flower or oil, POUNDS has the product for you,” said Snoop.
