Update: Suge Knight Released on $65K Bail, Lawyer Denies Weapons Charge

Suge Knight was quickly released from police custody yesterday (May 20), the same day he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.

According to the Associated Press, the former rap mogul was set free after posting $65,000 bail. Marc Brumer, a lawyer for Knight, denied the allegations that the ex-Death Row honcho pulled a gun on a man in South Los Angeles. He claims there was never even a confrontation between the two and Suge did not possess a weapon.

As previously reported, SK was cuffed in Gardenia on Thursday morning just after midnight. He was then held by authorities for allegedly driving with a suspended license.

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

    Released???? Naaah. Dude is in a self-imposed prison until he checks out. He’s toxic to himself and the only remaining option is not WHEN he will check out, but HOW. I hate to even speak on another brother’s downfall but any person that continuously exposes themselves to the ignorance and violence that he does has only one path. Self-destruction. Unless someone intervenes (and that person would probably be bitch-slapped by Shug himself), or Shug has a moment of spiritual awakening (you’d have better chances of winning 100 mill in that Powerball lottery) he will die. And it will most definitely be violently. I hope not, but the writing’s on the wall. Real talk.

      That’s some of the realest sh!t I’ve ever read on this site Sha. I hope cats take a moment and read it twice. I remeber when Suge was the muther fu%king man. Nobody has ever built a label with the amount of rap SUPERSTARS as Suge. Can you imagine having Tupac , DR Dre and Snoop Dog all on your roster.That’s fu%king impressive. Not to mention Daz , Kurupt,DJ Quik and in my personal opinion the best ghost writer ever the D.O.C. Suge changed the game . The Death Row Dynasty will be forever ethched into the history books. Not just in rap music but music as a whole and sadly as a real life crime drama. Someone mentioned karma. I literally know nothing about nothing but it is curiuos the timing of Suge’s life going to sh!t. On September 7 1997 his top star was shot. Earlier that same evening Suge was also filmed allegedley beating a man. Due to that evidence he was sent to prison for several years.He then gets out Death Row is in shambles has money troubles gets violated and goes back to prison. Gets back out loses his house and gets knocked the fu%k out in front of everyone. Little while latter gets shot and robbed. Then gets beat the fu%k out of by a bunch of dudes. Before this story last I heard he was suing somebody over a EARRING. WTF? I will echo JAMAL7MILE when I say I’ve known a few Suge Knights in my life. B.G.’s love to put that trophy on there mantel. I’m just wondering if by the time it happens if it will even be worth bragging about?

    this just in:

    I hate the following phrases:

    no homo
    real talk

    Brumer was either rubbing hands together when he heard this because he knows it’s going to be an easy pay day or was shaking his head and asking God why he still bothers representing a client who more than likely will hurt his over all record for courtroom wins and loses. Suge is too damn old to be still doing this BS. We all know he’s a bully and a one trick pony but after getting KTFO you would think he’d take a long hiatus from this kind of exposure. Even Bobby Brown knew when it was time to slow it down a bit [Maybe he hasn't stopped but at least he's at half speed].
