    Jurors found that the Snoop Dogg doesn't owe Richard Monroe Jr. anything for a severe beating he sustained after jumping on stage.

    A civil jury says Snoop Dogg didn't hit a man during a 2005 concert.

    The rapper wasn't in court Friday when the jury's verdict cleared him of civil assault and battery claims.

    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.
