Suge Knight will be bailed out of jail by Floyd Mayweather, according to Knight’s lawyer, Matt Fletcher.
“My understanding is that Suge’s going to be bailed out this coming week,” Fletcher says during an interview with the New York Daily News. “We think Mr. Mayweather is going to win the championship and then come champion the day again. They’re good friends and there’s no reason he shouldn’t and we believe that will happen.”
Mayweather is slated to fight Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas Saturday (May 2).
Knight was charged with murder and attempted murder after being arrested January 30 on murder charges regarding his alleged involvement in a deadly hit-and-run outside of Tam’s Burgers near the 1200 block of West Rosecrans Avenue in Los Angeles.
Knight reportedly allegedly injured two of the men he allegedly hit with his truck and killed a third, Terry Carter.
Knight’s bail had been set at $25 million, but has been reduced to $10 million.
Suge Knight’s murder trail has been set for July 7 by Los Angeles Superior Court judge Ronald Coen, according to a report today.
