Snoop Dogg Cleared of Charges in Crowd Injuries Lawsuit From 2016 Concert

Wiz Khalifa and Live Nation are still fighting the lawsuit dating back to the Aug. 5, 2016 New Jersey concert in which over 40 fans were injured.

Snoop Dogg has been cleared of the lawsuit against him for causing fan injuries when a barricade collapsed at a 2016 concert, according to TMZ.

At Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s Aug. 5, 2016 show at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, 42 concertgoers were injured when a front row railing broke, resulting in three venue employees and 14 fans suing both artists. Though Wiz Khalifa’s team and Live Nation (who operates BB&T Pavilion) is still fighting against the lawsuit, Snoop Dogg’s team was able to convince a judge to drop the charges because the rapper resides in California and the suit was filed in Pennsylvania.

The incident reportedly occurred when the rappers gestured fans to move towards the stage, causing the partition to collapse and the front row to fall about 10 feet. The show was about halfway over at that point, and was abruptly cancelled following the collapse.
