Suge Knight Arrested In Deadly Hit-And-Run

Rapper Marion “Suge” Knight has officially turned himself in to be arrested on murder charges from a fatal hit-and-run in Los Angeles.

He is being held on $2 million bail, but his side claims that the act was fueled by fear and the rap mogul was fleeing for his life.

Knight’s attorney James Blatt had this to say: “We are confident that once the investigation is completed, he will be totally exonerated,” Blatt told the Associated Press by phone late Thursday.

The official report states that Knight was driving a red pickup truck and he struck two individuals with his vehicle around 3 PM in Compton, California. This major altercation took place on the set of a movie in works titled “Straight Outta Compton,” a story about the rap group known as NWA, but the incident itself did not happen on set.


Witnesses at the scene said that it looked as if it was intentional and Knight ran the men over, then backed up to hit them again before fleeing the scene.

Knight co-founded Death Row Record with Dr. Dre back in 1991 and was one of the first major rap labels, signing major stars like Tupac Shakur, and was even the one behind the wheel when Tupac was shot in a drive by and eventually died. Tupac’s Death resulted in the rap label having to declare bankruptcy.

This isn’t Knights first encounter with the law, he has many prior felony convictions for armed robbery and assault with a gun, he’s already on trial for stealing a camera, spent 4 years in the clink for violating probation back in 1997.
