If there is anyone who has a lot of experience being arrested in Los Angeles over the last several decades, then it’s Marion “Suge” Knight. Knight was the CEO of the now-defunct gangster rap label Death Row Records, which launched the careers of some of the biggest rap stars of the 90s coming from the West Coast, like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.
However, these are probably the most serious charges that he has faced. According to police reports, Knight was arrested and is going to be charged for both murder and attempted murder. He is currently being held on $2 million bail.
Knight is going to be charged for running over two men and fatally injuring one of them. According to his attorneys, the two men in question were attacking Knight, and he accidentally hit them as he was trying to get away from them.
Knight fled the scene of the hit-and-run, but he later turned himself into police. He could be facing life in prison if convicted.
