Suge Knight Involved In Hit And Run Death
Suge Knight just can’t seem to stay out of sticky situations. After a particularly rough 2014 (getting shot, getting sick, getting arrested), he’s starting off the new year with possible murder charges under his belt. Via TMZ:
Suge Knight got into a fight on the set of a film project in Compton, ran over a man who later died, and then fled the scene.
Multiple witnesses tell us a movie shoot was going down with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre when Suge pulled up in his car. We’re told security told Suge to leave and that’s when trouble began.
A fight broke out between Suge and 2 men. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse … and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries.
It’s unclear at this point if the victim was connected to the film project.
Sources connected with Suge tell TMZ … the 2 men who fought Suge were the instigators. Our sources say Suge was scared because he’s in frail health — in addition to being shot 6 times last summer, he recently almost died from a blood clot.
The victim is Terry Carter, who we’re told is a friend of Suge’s who arrived with him at the scene. Our sources say Carter was in the process of walking to the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle, but happened to be in the rear when Suge gunned it.
Two other men were also hit … including Cle “Bone” Sloane — who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” — and suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both men are in the hospital.
This could mean some SERIOUSLY bad news for Suge. TMZ reports that Suge’s lawyer is currently arranging for him to turn himself in to the Sheriff’s Dept. At this point, it isn’t clear if he’ll be arrested for hit and run, manslaughter — or if he’ll be free to go because it was all an accident that resulted him running from a legit threat.
Time will tell…
