Former Death Row big wig Suge Knight has been charged with three felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from a physical confrontation with his girlfriend last summer.
According to TMZ, Nevada's Clark County Justice Court has tagged Suge with one misdemeanor count of battery and two felony drug possession charges for meth and hydrocodone.
Reports claim Knight punched his girlfriend, Melissa Isaac, last August while driving which led to her taking hold of the wheel and steering it into a curb.
Isaac then left the vehicle as Suge followed which resulted in his arrest by Las Vegas authorities.
A rep for Suge was unavailable as of press time.
The former hip-hop mogul recently made headlines for filing a suit against Kanye West for over $135,000. Suge is blaming Ye for a gun shot wound and robberty attained at the producer's pre-MTV Video Music Awards party in August 2005.
