Hip-hop mogul, Marion “Suge” Knight has been in the middle of controversy since his heyday in the 90’s as CEO of the legendary Death Row Records imprint. He has been implicated in gang activity and numerous violent incidents and has been in and out of jail over the years. After awhile, it seemed like Suge Knight had nine lives, but he may have run out of them after this latest incident. He has been arrested for murder after an allegedly intentional hit-and-run in California.
Suge Knight was in Compton and made his way to the set of the new NWA biopic that is filming. He reportedly got into a fight with two other men on the set. Outnumbered, Suge got into his car and threw it in reverse, hitting three men. One of the men, named Terry Carter suffered fatal injuries. Suge drove away from the scene and police found his truck abandoned in a parking lot in Westwood.
Early this morning, Suge Knight was arrested and booked on murder charges. His bail has been set at $2 million. Some are saying that the two men that Suge was fighting with instigated everything and Suge fled due to his frail condition. He was shot six time last summer. Others are saying that Suge reversed the car twice, implicating that he intended to hurt somebody.
It is said that Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are involved in the production of the NWA biopic, but neither were on the scene when Suge Knight showed up. Reportedly, filming had wrapped for the day.
