Snoop Dogg Hit With Lawsuit On Stage

A Norfolk, Virginia

concert promoter hit Snoop Dogg with a $5 million dollar lawsuit, while the rapper

was on stage during a performance at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater on Wednesday.

The plaintiff,

Patricia Richardson, claims that she was arrested on January 28th 1997, the

night of a Snoop concert she was promoting at local Club Flava.

Richardson

said that Snoop ordered her to pick up three Fedex packages. Police stopped

her, searched the packages, which were allegedly addressed to Snoop and found

over 7 pounds of marijuana.

"I was put

in a situation that I never should have been put into," Richardson told

WAVY News 10. "This is nothing about my character, not the type of activity

I’m involved in, ever involved in or ever will be involved in."

Richardson

said that the request was not odd and that concert promoters frequently carried

out such tasks.

“That’s part

of your responsibilities,” she said. “You don’t know what the packages

were."

Richardson is suing

for pain and suffering due to the arrest.

"I just hate

that I had to suffer for someone else, what other people did," Richardson

continued. "I don’t think that’s fair."

Richardson’s

attorney worked to keep the case alive and purposely arranged for an officer

in the Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Department to serve the rapper while he

was on stage.

Snoop now has 20

days to file a formal response in regards to the charges.
