Published May 20, 2010Notoriously violent rap mogul Suge Knight has been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, according to numerous sources. The former Death Row Records CEO, born Marion Knight, was arrested today (May 20) in Los Angeles after Knight allegedly pointed a gun at a man and then drove off.
According to AllHipHop, a warrant was out for Knight's arrest after he allegedly assaulted rapper Yukmouth and stole $92,000 in jewelry from him in March. TMZ has added to the allegations, saying that Knight pointed a gun at another car from the driver's seat window of his SUV earlier this morning. After those reports came in, Los Angeles police hunted down Knight, seized his car and arrested him.
Knight's official charges were assault with a deadly weapon and driving with a suspended license. His bail was set at $65,000.
This arrest follows a long history of legal problems in Knight's life. When combined with his previous criminal record, there's a good chance that he'll be spending the autumn of his life behind bars.
