Ice Cube And Dr. Dre Cleared Of Responsibility In Hit And Run Death

Remember when Suge Knight ran over one of his former friends — killing him in the process — as security tried to block him from entering the set of Straight Outta Compton back in early 2015? While Suge awaits trial for the murder, the family is suing everyone they thing is involved in the man’s tragic death…including Dr. Dre and Ice Cube.

However, a judge has ruled that the blame lies solely with Suge. All claims against the rapper/moguls have been dropped. Via TMZ:

Good news for Ice Cube and Dr. Dre — they’ve been dismissed from the wrongful death lawsuit that had been filed against them and Suge Knight for the death of Terry Carter.

A court ruled Cube and Dre aren’t responsible for Carter’s death because it’s unfathomable to blame them for Knight’s reckless and allegedly criminal act — running over and killing Carter.

TMZ broke the story … Cube and Dre were named defendants, along with Suge, when Carter’s family filed the suit … claiming Cube and Dre hired known gang members as security to keep Knight away from “Straight Outta Compton” shoot locations.

Suge ran over Carter shortly after security gave him the boot, and the family felt that’s what sent him into him into a rage.

The lawsuit remains against Suge, who also has a murder trial pending for the fatal hit-and-run.

Well, good. At the end of the day, no one ran over that poor man — may he rest in peace — but Suge Knight.
