Hot! Authorities Review Video of Suge Knight’s Fatal Parking Lot Run-In

Sheriff’s investigators Saturday were reviewing a video of an incident in which hip-hop music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight hit two men with his pickup truck, killing one, that may help provide clarity on whether Knight was the victim or attacker in his most serious run-in with the law to date.

The video is in “police custody” said Knight’s defense attorney James Blatt, and he said he would be seeing it on Monday or Tuesday. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida confirmed that detectives were reviewing the video, but “they have made no such arrangements with the attorney” nor did they plan to show it to him.

Meanwhile, Knight remained jailed on suspicion of murder after turning himself in early Friday. He’s being held on $2 million bail.

Sheriff’s deputies said Knight hit and killed his friend Terry Carter, 55, with his pickup truck Thursday in the parking lot of a Compton fast-food restaurant, also injuring Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51, an actor and film consultant who was hospitalized and in stable condition late Friday.

Blatt said Knight was an innocent victim who accidentally ran over the men as he tried to escape a vicious attack.

The incident was the latest in a long line of brushes with death and the law for the 49-year-old founder of Death Row Records, one of the genre’s leading labels.
