Suge Knight Arrested in Las Vegas

27 Aug Posted by in News | Comments

Marion "Suge" Knight was jailed Wednesday on assault and drug charges after he was accused of beating his girlfriend while brandishing a knife near the Las Vegas Strip, police said. Suge Knight auctioned off the bankrupt Death Row Records for $24 million in June. Knight, 43, posted $19,000 bail and was scheduled to be released late Wednesday with a promise to appear September 26 in Las Vegas Justice Court, a court spokeswoman said. Police said the founder of bankrupt Death Row Records was arrested about 6:40 a.m. after officers arrived at the scene of a minor traffic accident and found Knight hitting a woman in a parking lot off a busy thoroughfare. A citizen sees the beating in a parking lot; police get there fast; they see him beating her. “It’s a good, solid case,”Las Vegas police Lt. Chris Carroll said. The woman was not stabbed, but she was treated at a hospital for injuries that Carroll said were not life-threatening.
