Suge Knight is due in court today where a judge will hear evidence in his murder trial. In the meantime, full video of the hit-and-run has emerged and it may change folk’s opinions. Watch it inside…
We’ve got a few updates on imprisoned former record exec Suge Knight who pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges in February.
Since his incarceration, Suge has sought emergency medical care THREE times and now claims he’s going blind! If that weren’t enough on his plate, he’s fired his attorneys!
Today, he’s expected in court (where he “may” represent himself) and there’s a new video online of the graphic alleged hit-and-run.
While prosecutors claim Suge intentionally ran over Cle “Bone” Sloan and Terry Carter, Suge (with his former attorneys) argued he was acting in self-defense after allegedly being assaulted.
We’ve watched the clip (via TMZ)….and “Bone” clearly had some sort of fight with Suge (who was still in his truck). On the video, recorded January 29th, you’ll see Suge pull into Tam’s Burger and get confronted by Cle “Bone” Sloan. Then there’s a fight. Suge suddenly throws the truck in reverse, toppling Bone over. Moments later, Suge hits the gas again and strikes Bone a second time and also hits Terry mortally wounding him.
Terry Carter’s family asked that TMZ post the video to show what happened. Via their lawyer, Gary Dordick, they told TMZ, “The Carter family is pleased you are releasing the video so the public can see what actually occurred and not be forced to speculate based on third party descriptions of the video.”
Now…the circumstances that led to Suge running over the men….that’s for the judge and jury to decide. But we’ve got the tape…
Was this self-defense or the work of an angry man?
