Suge Knight Briefly Jailed for Marijuana Possession and Traffic Warrants
The former Death Row Records executive was arrested in Las Vegas on February 8 after being pulled over for making an unsafe lane change, but has been released on around $2,600 bail.


Suge Knight has found himself in another trouble with the police. The former Death Row Records executive was arrested in Las Vegas on Wednesday, February 8 after police found during a routine traffic stop that he had less than an ounce of marijuana in his possession in addition to three outstanding traffic warrants.

The rap music mogul was pulled over near the Vegas Strip at around 5:30 P.M. after he was seen making an unsafe lane change. When the cops ran his name in the system, they discovered multiple warrants, including one for a driving on a suspended out-of-state license. A search of his black Bentley further uncovered he was in possession of marijuana.

The 46-year-old was then taken to a nearby station to be cited for possession of a controlled substance and was ticketed for making an unsafe lane change. Metro police officer Jay Rivera told Reuters that he was released a short while later on about $2,600 bail. He is set to appear in Las Vegas Municipal Court on March 12.

Knight has had his fair share of run-ins with the law. Back in 2008, he was arrested in the Sin City on drug and assault charges. In May 2010, he was busted in Los Angeles on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He is currently on three years' unsupervised probation for driving on a suspended license.
