Former Death Row Records owner Marion "Suge" Knight is once again making headlines this month, this time, for getting convicted in a suspended license case.
According to reports, Knight must undergo three years of probation for driving with a suspended license earlier this year.
Former Death Row Records boss Suge Knight has been sentenced to 36 months probation for driving on a suspended licence. The rap mogul was convicted after police pulled him over and impounded his black truck in Beverly Hills back in February. He pleaded no contest to the charge and was given three years unsupervised probation. This is the second time the rap mogul has been caught driving on a suspended licence. (NME News)
Last February, Knight made headlines after his vehicle was impounded in Los Angeles.
Suge Knight's bada** black truck was impounded by cops in Beverly Hills today -- after the former rap mogul was pulled over for driving on a suspended license. We're told Knight was cited -- but not arrested -- and after his truck was hauled away, he asked a random female onlooker for a ride to a nearby location ... and she obliged. The last time Suge was nailed for driving on a suspended license back in 2010 ... he failed to appear in court and was arrested after the judge issued a warrant for the guy. (TMZ)
In summer 2010, Knight was issued a warrant for missing a court appearance after being taken down by cops on a suspended license charge two months prior.
Knight, whose real name is Marion Hugh Knight, was detained in Gardena around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. Nearly a half-dozen officers surrounded Knight's white Cadillac Escalade in the area of Crenshaw Blvd. and 147th Street. He was then placed in handcuffs and taken into custody. It was not immediately known why Knight was detained. He was reportedly being held at the LAPD's Southwest Divison. (CT Now)
A few days ago, Knight updated fans on what he has been up to as of late.
"You know, we're working on these movies right now," Knight revealed. "These movies, some documentaries. You know. I ain't like those other dudes in the business. I'm the one who don't go snitching. Everybody else is telling. That's why I'm the only one to do time [behind bars], everybody else never go -- A lot of these dudes say they love 'Pac, but at the same time they be doing sh*t like Bucky, I mean Puffy, whatever it is...Once now all of the truth comes out on all the people who did 'Pac wrong, we still gotta be back on that mission."
