Former Death Row Records Marion "Suge" Knight has reportedly been issued a 100-yard restraining order from a man he allegedly tried to kill.
Details on the order were revealed Wednesday (July 30) afternoon.
Hip-Hop heavyweight Suge Knight has been slapped with a permanent restraining order after allegedly putting a hit on a Los Angeles area. According to Los Angeles County Superior Court, Knight's accuser claimed the former Death Row Records CEO "had 8 guys come to my house and told them to get me or kill me." The alleged incident came one day after Knight was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. It is unclear if the two incidents are connected. Knight was ordered to stay 100 yards (91 meters) away from his accuser's home, car and workplace. (PR Inside)
The rapper was initially accused of masterminding a botched murder last month.
One day after Suge Knight was released from jail last week, the rap mogul allegedly masterminded a murder plot ... this according to legal documents. According to legal docs, the man claims Suge "had 8 guys come to my house and told them to get me or kill me." (TMZ)
Also last month, Knight was arrested on a weapons charge in California.

Prior to having the charges dropped, the mogul's attorney, Marc Brumer proclaimed Knight's innocence.
"He's innocent, 100 percent," Brumer said in a phone interview. "Suge Knight is a businessman. He is not a person who would carry a gun or flash a gun at anybody. That's not Suge Knight...There was never a gun found. He was very cooperative, answered all the questions police had, and we just feel that he shouldn't have been arrested...There are a lot of people that hate (Knight) and are jealous of what he has obtained in his life."
