Looks like Suge Knight has found himself in some deep ish after allegedly running over two men in Compton last week. He turned himself in Friday morning and NOW he’s being charged with MURDER and attempted murder. Get the latest inside….
It appears Suge Knight could be facing some serious time if he’s convicted of the fatal hit-and-run incident that he allegedly was involved in last week.
Hip Hop mogul Marion “Suge” Knight (previous mugshot circa 2008) has officially been charged with murder and attempted premeditated murder after he ran over two men, resulting in the death of his supposed friend/business partner, 55-year-old Terry Carter, and injuring another “friend” named Cle Shaheed “Bone” Sloan.
According to reports, the Death Row founder has also been charged with additional felonies including, hit-and-run resulting in death and hit-and-run resulting in injury.
A little back story….On Thursday around 3PM PST, Suge allegedly rolled up on a promotional shoot for the Straight Outta Compton film when some type of altercation erupted. It resulted in Suge gunning his vehicle, rolling over TWO pedestrians and then speeding away. His lawyer James Blatt claims his client was trying to escape after he was supposedly attacked by the two men.
Witnesses on the scene tell a different story. They believe the hit-and-run was intentional and so does the late victim’s family. Now the prosecutor is following suit based on the evidence. We hear investigators were able to obtain video footage, which captured a portion of what really happened last Thursday.
Friday morning, Suge turned himself in to the L.A. County’s Sheriff’s Department in West Hollywood and he was accompanied by his attorney.
Hours before his official indictment, his $2.2 million bail was revoked. Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida revealed to the L.A. Times why his bail was retracted, which include, “possible flight risk, three-strike candidate, possible witness intimidation issues and his criminal past.”
It’s reported if he’s convicted of these charges, he could possibly face life in prison.
