Suge Knight Arrested
Suge Knight’s life used to be fabulous, but that was 20 years ago. Since then, it’s been one negative piece of news after another, and the man that he used to be doesn’t exist anymore. Will he ever return to greatness? Probably not. He’s kind of become the Mike Tyson of hip-hop, and was never able to use his vast musical genius to do anything other than mess his life up. What a waste.
Former hip hop mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been arrested on an outstanding warrant after being pulled over for a traffic violation in Los Angeles.
Police Officer Sara Faden says the founder of Death Row Records was stopped shortly after midnight Wednesday near Beverly Hills. She declined to say what the alleged traffic violation was.
Officers determined Knight was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant and police took him into custody. Records show he was booked into county jail and released several hours later on $20,000 bail.
A warrant was issued for Knight’s arrest in February after he skipped a court appearance for driving without a license.
Death Row Records helped make stars of rappers such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.
Knight filed for bankruptcy in 2006.
