Suge Knight Arrested On Misdemeanor Warrant While Driving In West LA
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Rap music mogul Suge Knight was arrested early Wednesday morning in West Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The Death Row Records founder, whose real name is Marion Hugh Knight Jr., was pulled over around 12:30 a.m. near Roxbury Drive and Pico Boulevard.
It was unclear why officers pulled the 48-year-old over, however, Knight was arrested after a background check revealed he was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant stemming from a missed court appearance for charges of driving without a license while on three years of unsupervised probation.
Knight was booked into the LAPD’s Metro Facility where he posted $20,000 bail just before 4 a.m., according to jail records.
