Suge Knight Hospitalized After Brawl, Akon Associate Faces Felony Assault


Death Row Records founder Suge Knight was reportedly rushed to the hospital over the weekend after suffering severe facial injuries.

TMZ reports that Knight allegedly got into an altercation with a member of Akon’s entourage, during a private NBA All-Star weekend party at the W Hotel, in Scottsdale, AZ.

Authorities say they saw the suspect, Robert Carnes, Jr., punch Knight in the face twice, forcing them to use tasers to “quell the fight.” Carnes was charged with felony aggravated assault due to the “severity of the victim’s injuries.” Another man was also cuffed and hit with misdemeanor charges.

Reps for Akon say the singer was not at the party at the time of the incident.

This is the second time Knight was involved in a fight over the course of the last nine months. Last May the former hip-hop mogul was knocked out during a brawl in a Los Angeles night spot.

In related news Knight’s Death Row Records was recently sold for $18 million in a public auction. The West Coast entrepreneur was forced to put the label up for sale after filing for bankruptcy in ’06. – Elan Mancini

WHAT I FIND MORE IRONIC IS THAT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO IN XXL MAGAZINE, I READ A STORY ABOUT PROOF OF D12 (RIP) WHERE HE TALKED ABOUT THE 1ST TIME HE SAW SUGE KNIGHT & HIM HEARING THAT KNIGHT WAS IN THE DOWNSTAIRS AREA OF THE HOTEL THEY WERE STAYING IN. HE WENT DOWNSTAIRS TO SEE SUGE IN PERSON,& HE SAID HE COULD SEE IN SUGE’S EYES THAT HE WASN’T AS TOUGH AS HE APPEARED & ACTED LIKE. PROOF SAID I’M FROM DETROIT & KNOW REAL LIFE KILLER’S & TOUGH GUYS & COULD SEE IN SUGE’S EYES HE WASN’T LEGIT. NOW THAT THE MONEY IS GONE & NOBODY THAT ISN’T A REAL FRIEND IS GONE HAVE YOUR BACK FOR FREE, WHAT IS THERE TO FEAR. I’M FROM CHICAGO I WAS TAUGHT THE BIGGER THEY ARE THE HARDER THEY FALL!!! DON’T RUN FROM A FIGHT UNTIL YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T WIN, UNTIL THEN MAN UP!!!!!

    Suge represents the West the best.

  • the G.O.D

    Peace

    Only industry people were scared of this dude, where I’m from dudes used to hear stories about this cat and all thoughts he was a poseur–Somebody I think Monster Kody had-indirectly-exposed him as being naught but a fraud–how Suge had complained about not having enough time to shower or something.

    Peace

    Is Suge trying to the next character in a Wii version of Super Punch Out?

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com tony grand$

      Damn, 09 is starting to be the year of the “associate”.

      Akon, Freeky Zeeky, & Ne-Yo got some hardcore weed holders & blunt rollers riding with them!

      That’s where Suge lost his footing. All his hanger-on’s migrated.

      Poor guy should sit in that electric chair & turn it on. Oh wait, they auctioned it.

    Dudes gonna be lining up to knock his scary a$$ out. Now that he doesn’t have his money and fake blood goons at his disposal, nor the cops in his pocket, he can’t prey on others. Instead he goes to parties, and “prays” that he can steal, scam, or impress his way to somebody else’s leftovers whether it be money hookups, or whatever.

    Suge is that big dude you knew who would show up and look for every opportunity to take something from the situation. Nobody wanted him around, but once he got a little power then he knew how to leverage it for something bigger. You can act like a boss, dress like a boss, and tell others you are a boss, but iff you don’t really have the skills, or now how to treat those who made you all your money then you will eventually lose it in the end…

    And brothers will be LINING UP to beat you to a BLOODy pulp.

    I never thought a AKON associate would be more gangsta then Suge…

    Pretty soon you will see him standing on a So Cal off ramp with a sign reading: “Will pose with you in a red jacket for a Cuban”

  • fireforreal

    Suge is a big ass teady bear. He keeps getting tested every time someone else drops his ass,another cat is gonna step up and serve his punk ass. He’s getting his punk ass put out on display for all the wrong he did to Snoop,Dre,Tupac,Biggie,Crooked I(Never releasing his 2 completed albums and everyone else who had beat up,jumped or just humiliated because he thought it was funny and he thought he was really a mafia don. Now he’s just a washed up has been who filed for bankruptcy and lost all he had left. The deathrow masters and his self respect. Hurt’s doesn’t it.
