Death Row Records founder Suge Knight was involved in an alteration at a Los Angeles night spot over the weekend that resulted in the hefty hit maker getting knocked out cold.
According to TMZ, Knight and a group of men beat an unidentified man at Shag nightclub after the Death Row head and the man got into a heated discussion. Knight and the man were involved in a conversation before witnesses said Knight shouted “I want my money!”
After Knight and his crew assaulted the man, TMZ reports the man got up from the ground and landed a punch to Knight’s face that resulted in the infamous music mogul hitting the deck. Sources told the gossip Web site Knight was out cold for nearly three minutes.
New details are emerging that suggest Knight was involved in two separate incident within a matter of minutes. The party involved in the first melee may not have been the individual responsible for flooring Knight. According to reports, a suspect with the man who received the beat down from Knight and his cronies may have been the one who delivered the blow with a weapon. Another scenario that is being spread is that another group witnessing the brawl may have had a role Knight’s injury.
TMZ is now reporting two men (one of which Knight was acquainted with) were playfully arguing outside of the club over who made more money when Knight walked mistakenly believed the verbal tussle to be serious. Knight and the party he was unfamiliar with got into the altercation. According to TMZ, the unidentified man (pictured above) claims he did not use a weapon when he struck Knight.
Knight and his entourage exited the club amid a minor frenzy following the fight. A woman attempted to drive Knight away in an SUV but hit other cars when she both pulled forward and reversed. Security removed the woman from the car and another member of Knight’s posse drove him to the hospital. According to the report, police attempted to talk to Knight at the medical facility but he was uncooperative and refused to file a police report regarding the incident.
