Suge Knight Arrrested on Gun Charges

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.

    Damn nigga jus damn. Your 45 nigga you old as fuck. Give it up and go raise your damn kids instead of being a goon AT 45 YEARS OLD. Why does Suge not have other people doing this shit for him??? It isn’t 1995 no more and this mans priors are adding up.

    Suge is Dumb As Hell!! I agree with niggaplease. He’s old as hell and should use his business brain and leave his hood shit alone!
    He ain’t nothing but a hoodrat who had a little success outside the hood!
    I actually tired of hearing about this loser!

    That karma is a bitch! But I feel sadness in reading this. Not about a man making a mistake, but because he continues to make mistakes. Suge was always a bully. Take away the fame, money, and power and he is still a bully….with not much else. His entire life has been devoted to putting forth this persona of fear. I never hear about his family having his back. I never hear about any of his boys going to bat for him. He has alienated himself like a clumsy chess piece and has become expendable to everyone that knew him. A sad day. But justice is a two-faced bitch. Some days she rides with you and some days she rides for the people you fucked over. Real talk.

      Suge took Death Row Records from a Conglomerate to a joke. He fucked up the West.

    undeniably the most hated man in hip-hop…karma’s a bitch Suge!

    I’d give him a year, maybe two, before someone lays him down for good. I’ve known a few Suge Knights out here in Detroit and they are all dead. I’ve seen this play out quite a few times.

    And Suge Knight in D12? BWAHAHAHAHAAAAA!! Stop smokin’ that crack, man!

      $yk, what up doe?

      You know something? After reading that 2nd comment…naw, that ain’t BeerGangsta! My apologies to Diet Tony – someone’s joking around. BG has a certain ‘e-voice’ when he posts, and that ain’t it.

      Not wishing death on Suge either. Or any man. But I’ve seen this movie before.
