A Seattle, Washington
fan was assaulted on stage during a concert at the White River Amphitheater over
the weekend featuring Snoop Dogg and The Game.

Monroe, who stands about
6’3, claims that some of the men on stage encouraged him to get on the
stage while Snoop was performing his hit “Gin and Juice.”
Once he was on stage, Monroe
claims he was attacked by at least a dozen men, including Snoop Dogg and The

that someone hit him with a microphone and that other items were stolen.
The show was abruptly ended

“He was beaten senseless
