Suge Knight Arrested On Murder Charges For Deadly Hit And Run

no title

Suge Knight has been arrested on actual murder charges.

It all went down at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in West Hollywood at 12:30 a.m. this morning where Suge and his attorney arrived to talk to homicide detectives.

He was questioned about getting into an altercation on Thursday during filming for Straight Outta Compton, then a fight at a burger joint, where ultimately his vehicle was used to — according to witnesses — repeatedly back over the victim and injuring others.

Suge and his lawyer showed up at the police station early and he was arrested around 3:30 a.m. on suspicion of murder. His bail is set at $2 million.

According to witnesses, the victim was walking behind Suge’s truck near Tam’s Burgers. That’s when Suge allegedly threw the vehicle into reverse and backed up, then drove over, and possibly backed over the victim AGAIN.

He eventually died from the injuries.

But who were the victims? The latest report has them pinned as Terry Carter, a friend of Suge’s who arrived with him at the scene. Carter apparently was moving towards the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle when he was struck and killed.

There were two others who reportedly sustained injuries as well, including Training Day and End of Watch actor Cle “Bone” Sloan.

Suge’s lawyer James E. Blatt believes his client will be out of jail by Tuesday at the latest, and that the hit and run happened only after Suge felt that his life was in danger. Blatt said:

“I am positive Mr. Knight will be exonerated by Tuesday. Investigators are still interviewing witnesses and still need to see video of the incident.”

We certainly hope the police investigate this case to the fullest to determine what really happened here.

If he IS responsible for the death of someone, and it sounds like that may be the case, then we hope the punishment is appropriate.

We’ll keep you updated on this case as it develops!
