Suge Knight Fined For Traffic Violation, Cleared On February Marijuana Charges

UPDATE: The former Death Row Records CEO agreed to a $425 fine, but was cleared on drug charges from a February arrest in Las Vegas.

Suge Knight was arrested yesterday in Las Vegas, Nevada after police pulled him over for a routine traffic stop and discovered marijuana on his person.

According to TMZ, the former Death Row honcho was pulled over at 5:34 p.m. for making an unsafe lane change in his black Bentley. After running his name through the system, police discovered several warrants out for his arrest from minor traffic violations.

Police searched the vehicle and discovered a small amount of weed in his possession. He was taken to a nearby jail and processed, though was released shortly after.

Knight is currently on three-year unsupervised probation for driving on a suspended license. This latest arrest could compromise the probation.

HipHopDX will keep you updated.

    How does he have a Bentley? He might be stupid but he's obviously still got some cash.

  • Anonymous

    He didn't make Death Row? He only ran it, assembled the talent, and for a time, was making all the money. That said, yeah, greed did do him in, but you also have to wonder what it felt like for his meal ticket (Pac) to say he was leaving. Talk about an insult. Suge is a snake, but I think somewhere down the line he might have had good intentions but realized that his artists were going to be no more loyal in the end than he was.

    • buckeyewu

      Not to disagree with you but I think your giving Suge too much credit. All he did was bully Eazy E into releasing Dre from a contract. Then he put his name as executive producer on Death Row to keep Dre from getting sued. I think Suge started bringing in talent that wasnt really talent and then Dre was like fuck it and left. The only good talent he signed was 2Pac. Even then he bullied Dre into giving his single, "California Love" to Pac.

    this guy had it all & now look what his greed did to him, im gald hes at where hes at rite now in lfie. u killed Tupace & Biggie. u were the fist $300million CEO & now your broke smh u didnt make death row, dre, snoop, pac, date, & DPG did

  • buckeyewu

    Damn, dude has been on this planet for like 40 years. You would think he would have learned how to stay out of jail by now.

  • DL Dub

    What a dumbass. How many times can you be arrested for the same shit before you learn? Suge having your license suspended means YOU CANT DRIVE. Not sometimes you can drive, or you drive when you think no one's watching. And getting pulled over for unsafe lane change? That means your driving is so terrible you shouldnt have had a license in the first place. Nigga stays in jail

      I'll fucking crush any moron who uses the gay word "swag" one more time. FUCKIN SWAGGOTS! You can't even put Lil Wayne in the same sentence as Pac, unless it reads something like "Unlike wack ass Lil Wayne, Pac actually had talent and something meaningful to say". And who cares about the record sales anyway, unless you're a dickriding asskisser swaggot? Personally, I listen to the artists I find the best and not the industry whores who sell the most.

    The brother can't seem to stay out of jail.ally. He had one of the most powerful influential modern record labels, and he blew it for his own ignorance, arrogance, and allegiance to "street credibility" over common sense, mainstream business savvy and baseline decency. I don't feel sorry for him. I hope his kids turn out okay. I can see his lawyers' kids and grandkids having their college funds on lock, but Suge probably can't say the same for his own.

  • OJ SIMPSON

    He can share a cell with me! BTW If my best friend & top recording artist got murdered in a city, I would not be going back to that city and living there or cruisin in my Bentley in that same city... I'd never wanna go back...
