Marion 'Suge' Knight Arrested in L.A. Over Outstanding Warrant


Suge Knight


The former rap CEO was taken into custody on Wednesday after being pulled over for a traffic violation.

A traffic violation committed by former hip-hop mogul Suge Knight a.k.a Marion Knight on Wednesday, September 11 in Los Angeles led to his arrest over an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. The Death Row Records co-founder was pulled over around 12:30 A.M. near Beverly Hills and subsequently taken to the Los Angeles County Jail where he was held until 4 A.M. before being released on $20,000 bail.

The warrant was issued back in February after the 48-year-old Knight failed to appear in court for driving without a license, for which he was sentenced in 2011 to three years probation. Police discovered the Black Kapital Records CEO had an outstanding warrant upon checking his record after the traffic stop.

This incident is the latest in Knight's list of run-ins with the law which goes back to 1996 when he was sentenced to nine years in jail for a probation violation. After being released before the end of his sentence in 2001, he returned to prison in 2003 for a parole violation for hitting a parking lot attendant, kicking off the rapid recline of Death Row Records leading to its eventual bankruptcy in 2006.

In May 2008, Knight added more offenses to his police record, after getting involved in a Hollywood nightclub brawl and just within a few months after that, got arrested again, this time in Las Vegas over allegations of drug possession and aggravated assault after police found him beating his girlfriend while brandishing a knife.
