Suge Knight arrested for assault with a deadly weapon

Ex-Death Row label boss taken by police in Los Angeles

Former Death Row Records label boss Marion ‘Suge’ Knight has been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon in Los Angeles.

The rap mogul was picked up by police in the early hours of yesterday (May 20) after allegedly pointing a gun at someone then leaving the scene by car, reports BBC News.

Knight was also charged with driving on a suspended license. He is being held in custody on $65,000 (£45,000) bail.

The arrest is not Knight‘s only ongoing legal problem. He is set to face Kanye West in court in Miami in December, having sued him following a shooting at a party hosted by West in the city.
