Suge Knight Charged With Murder And Attempted Murder

Suge Knight is in some serious trouble after he allegedly ran over two people, killing one of them and then running. Knight was charged with one count of murder along with one count of attempted murder after he argued with two men in Compton last week. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office claims that the co-founder of Death Row Records was involved in the fatal hit and run in the parking lot at a Tam’s Burgers in Compton.

The spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s department said that Suge Knight’s bail was revoked for “possible flight risk, three strike candidate, possible witness intimidation issues and his criminal past.”

His bail was previously set at $2.2 million, but after the new charges were filed, his bail was revoked.

The L.A. Times reports:

Knight, 49, allegedly ran over Terry Carter and Cle “Bone” Sloan with his truck.

Carter was killed.

The confrontation began about 3 p.m. Thursday when Knight and the victims began arguing on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” a biopic about the group N.W.A, said Lt. John Corina of the Sheriff’s Department’s detectives unit.

Knight is due to make his first court appearance in Compton on Tuesday.
