Suge Knight has been arrested for murder in the US after being involved in a fatal hit-and-run incident.
According to the BBC, the hip-hop mogul is being held in West Hollywood on bail of $2million after Knight surrendered to police after striking a man with his car on Thursday (January 29).
TMZ earlier reported that one time Death Row Records CEO got into a fight with two crew members on the set of an unnamed film project in Compton, Calif.
It has now emerged that the hit-and-run incident happened after that episode at a burger shop, where a man fitting Knight’s description began rowing with two people and when fleeing the scene, he backed into one of the victims, before running them both over.
According to the Sheriff's Department, one of the men later died in hospital, while the second victim’s condition is yet to be confirmed.
HIs lawyer James Blatt has since confirmed that Knight was behind the wheel, stating: “He was in the process of being physically assaulted by two men and in an effort to escape he unfortunately hit two (other) individuals.
"He was in his car trying to escape."
