    Default Marion 'Suge' Knight is off the streets




    LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) -- 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.
    Police did not release the woman's name or age but said she identified herself as Knight's girlfriend of three years.

    "This is a very large man," Carroll said, estimating his weight at more than twice the woman's. "He was on top of her, actually in the act of violently beating her when the officers arrived, with the knife in his hand."

    At least one officer drew a Taser stun gun as they approached Knight, said Officer Jacinto Rivera, a police spokesman. He said he did not know whether the officers drew their handguns.
    Knight dropped the folding knife and was taken into custody without incident, Carroll said.

    He was booked into the Clark County jail on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a controlled substance, and misdemeanor charges of possession of dangerous drugs without a prescription and domestic violence.

    Knight had the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested, Carroll said, but it was not clear whether he or the woman had used drugs or alcohol before the arrest.

    Lawyers David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, who are representing Knight, said they wanted to gather information about the arrest and talk with Knight before commenting.

    Rivera said Knight and the woman left a Las Vegas strip club, Spearmint Rhino, shortly before the arrest. They were alone in a champagne-colored Cadillac Escalade.

    Police said Knight and the woman argued in the vehicle while Knight was driving before he punched her in the head.
    "The victim purposely grabbed the steering wheel and caused the vehicle to hit the curb," police said in a statement. Police said the woman tried to run away, but Knight caught her.

    Knight has a history of legal problems and was with Tupac Shakur when the rapper was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996.
    Knight was convicted of assault in 1992 and placed on probation and then jailed for five years in 1996 for violating that probation.
    He was returned to jail in 2003 for again violating parole for punching a parking attendant at a Hollywood nightclub. He was released the next year.

    Knight was wounded during a shooting at a party in a Miami, Florida, nightclub in August 2005.
    His former record company was auctioned in June for $24 million to New York-based Global Music Group Inc.
    Daniel McCarthy, a lawyer handling a Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection filing for Knight and the record company, said Wednesday that the sale is pending.

    Death Row Records was known for releasing seminal gangster rap albums by Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and it sold tens of millions of albums in the heyday of early 1990s rap.
    In 2006, a federal judge ordered a bankruptcy trustee takeover of Death Row Records, saying the label had undergone gross mismanagement. Knight's decision to file for bankruptcy protection staved off a move by the court to appoint someone to take control of the record label and his assets.

    I can't stand this asshole. If the girl is smart (which she may not be considering she was with Suge in the first place) she should run as far as she can and lay very low.

    Who would seriously date him? His idea of romance probably involves dangling you over a balcony. Ugh.

    There was a rumour in the General Hospital forums I hang out (don't ask) that he had shown up at some function and harrassed a black girl who's on the show (mostly on Night Shift, actually) and that Sonya Eddy (Epiphany) scared him off (probably threatened to sit on him)

    Vigilantes should do us all a favor and take this guy out. Sometimes I think the world would just be a better place if some folks were not around...this guy is one of them. I'm not sure what value he brings to the world.

    I'm always amazed at the women who are happy to be in relationships with straight up thugs. I guess maybe they feel "safe". Until of course he turns on them.
