DETROIT, March 20 (UPI) -- The Michigan Supreme Court has dismissed a lawsuit filed by several Detroit police officers against hip hop artist and producer Dr. Dre.

The lawsuit grew out of a backstage confrontation at a 2000 concert featuring Dr. Dre and Eminem, WEYI-TV, Saginaw, Mich., reported Sunday.

Gary Brown, a former Detroit police official who is now a Detroit City councilman, threatened to have the power shut off at the concert venue if show organizers showed a sexually explicit video.
