Suge Knight is set to be released from prison today after posting a $19,000 bail late Wednesday afternoon.

The notorious American music executive was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, according to TMZ.

Las Vegas cops arrested Knight and the Death Row founder was charged with terrorizing and attacking the woman.

Knight and the unidentified woman have been romantically involved for three years. On Wednesday morning, however, she claimed Knight punched her in the pack of the head while driving in a car; she attempted to get out of the car and grabbed the wheel to cause an accident to draw attention to her attack.

The car struck a curb and came to a stop. She fled the vehicle and Knight pursued her until cops arrived.

Reports indicated authorities saw Knight kick the woman and brandish a knife.

Knight is due back in a Nevada court September 26 to answer to charges.---Craig Hume
