Suge Knight may be headed back to prison. The former West Coast rap mogul was arrested in L.A. early Thursday morning (May 20) for allegedly assaulting a man with a firearm, reports ABC News.

Suge was picked up by the California Highway Patrol at 12:30 a.m. after a man called the police and said Knight threatened him with a gun an hour earlier.

The former Death Row honcho is currently being held by the LAPD on a warrant alleging he was behind the wheel with a suspended license.

If convicted, Knight will most likely return to jail for violating the terms of his probation.

Knight made headlines last March when he was accused of robbing Bay Area rapper Yukmouth of $92,000 worth of jewelry. Last year the Suge was also fingered in robbing the house of Akon’s producer, Detail. Earlier in 2009, the 45-year-old plead guilty to assaulting his girlfriend.
