UPDATE: Suge Knight has been arrested, as of 3:00AM PST, in connection with a fatal hit-and-run yesterday afternoon in Compton. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced that Suge is in their custody and is being held on $2 Million bail at the West Hollywood station.
Suge’s Attorney James Blatt that Suge was the driver of the red pick up truck that struck and killed Terry Carter and injuring 2 others, prior to taking off from the scene. The truck had been found abandoned, and James Blatt said that his client was in fear of his life. Due to Suge trying to escape, James Blatt believes that Suge will be exonerated from the charges.
“Looks like he drove backwards and struck the victims and drove forwards and struck them again,”said L.A. County sheriff’s Lt. John Corina. “The people we talked to say it looked like it was an intentional act.” This story is still developing.
Suge Knight is currently a wanted man. On the film set of the NWA Biopic with Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, Suge allegedly showed up to the set uninvited. When asked to leave, Suge allegedly got enraged, ran over a man, and fled the scene. Upon arrival of paramedics, CPR was shown to be ineffective and the victim was pronounced dead.
We find out the victims name is Terry Carter, who arrived to the set with Suge and is a good friend of Suge’s. Apparently Suge got into an argument with 2 gentlemen, and got in his vehicle gunning it in reverse. Witnesses say Mr. Carter was in the rear of the vehicle and most likely was trying to get back in Suge’s vehicle, in which he arrived in. Suge then fled the scene after running over Mr. Carter’s body.
One other gentlemen was run over as well, Cle “Bone” Sloan. “Bone” was an actor who is most known for his role in Training Day. He suffered non-life threatening injuries, and there’s also one other unnamed gentleman who’s in the same state as “Bone”.
The Sheriff’s Dept. has issued a bulletin to all Officers saying “be on the lookout” for Suge Knight, that he is wanted for questioning for his role in a 187 (murder). Sources say Suge’s attorney, James Blatt, is currently prepping Suge to be turned over to officials. Stay tuned as more updates become available, and the video below shows Paramedics performing CPR unsuccessfully on Mr. Carter.
