Suge Knight has been charged with three crimes in connection to the alleged assault of his girlfriend in Las Vegas, according to TMZ.com.

Suge was charged by the Clark County Justice Court with two felony charges of possession of a controlled substance (meth and hydrocodone) and one count misdemeanor battery.

Allegedly, Suge punched his girlfriend of three years in the back of the head while he was driving. In response, she grabbed the wheel and forced the car into a curb.

When she fled from the car, Suge pursued, at which point Las Vegas police intervened and arrested the former rap mogul. Police claim to have seen Suge kick his girlfriend in the head.

It has not been revealed whether a court date has been set for the charges.
