Authorities have footage of the Suge Knight hit and run that left one man dead and another hospitalized. The footage is being reviewed and needless to say will determine the Death Row Records founders’ fate.
Reports the Associated Press:
Investigators were reviewing a video of an incident in which Marion “Suge” Knight struck two men with his pickup – leaving one dead and the other injured – to help shed light on whether the rap music mogul was a perpetrator or victim in a case that led to his arrest.
Knight remained jailed on $2 million bail on suspicion of murder, and was scheduled to make a court appearance on Tuesday, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department.
Authorities alleged Knight hit and killed his friend Terry Carter, 55, with his pickup truck Thursday in the parking lot of a Compton fast-food restaurant, also injuring Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51, an actor and film consultant.
The footage’s origin is unknown at this time. TMZ reports that surveillance cameras near the scene of the incident were either not working or face in the proper direction to record what happened.
Knight lawyer claims that his client was just a victim who was trying to get away from being assaulted. However, witnesses contend that Suge intentionally ran over his victims.
Knight was charged with murder and is currently being held on $2M bail. Needless to say that video footage is one hot commodity.
