SUGE KNIGHT HAS TURNED HIMSELF IN FOR HIT AND RUN MURDER
News broke yesterday that Hip-Hop strong arm, Marion “Suge” Knight was involved in a hit and run after shooting footage for the new NWA biopic, “Straight Out Of Compton” with Ice Cube, The Game, Dr. Dre, and others.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the crash on West Rosecrans Avenue in Compton, which occurred at about 2:55 p.m. (5:55 p.m. ET), which left Terry Carter, Suge’s friend who actually arrived with Suge on set, dead and Cle “Bone” Sloane, who appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” with non-life threatening injuries as well as another victim who’s identity has not yet been released.
It is reported that Knight, 49, turned himself in for the investigation in West Hollywood and was arrested on a murder charge. His attorney, James Platt, calls the incident a tragic accident even though witnesses say that the incident looked intentional.
L.A. sheriff officials say they found Suge’s car abandoned in a parking lot in Westwood. Officials told KNBC, that according to eye witness accounts “the truck drove backwards, struck victims, then went forward and struck them again as he left.” The Death Row Records founder is held on $2 million bail.
