Former Death Row Records owner Marion "Suge" Knight may have called a truce with Snoop Dogg earlier in the week, however, Los Angeles police are now looking for their own reunion with him in handcuffs.
According to reports, there are at least two arrest warrants issued for Knight.
Suge Knight is a wanted man in California ... TWO warrants have been issued for his arrest -- stemming from a couple of alleged joyrides with a bum license. Suge was SUPPOSED to be in court Thursday ... regarding two cases -- one from 2011 and one from 2012 -- when cops busted him driving on a suspended license ... of all things. He was sentenced to 3 years unsupervised probation for one of the incidents. The other was still pending. (TMZ)
Knight's woes are reportedly self-inflicted as he decided to ditch a court appearance a few days ago.
But now, a rep for the L.A. County Superior Court tells TMZ ... Suge was a NO-SHOW at a recent court date for both cases. We're told the judge immediately issued two bench warrants -- one for $5,000 and the other for $30,000 -- which means cops can arrest the music exec on sight. Maybe it's time to call his friend, and client, Katt Williams for advice. (TMZ)
Around this time last year, Suge ran into similar problems with law enforcement out in Las Vegas.
Stop us if you've heard this one before: Suge Knight's in trouble again. The erstwhile Death Row Records impresario was popped in Las Vegas on Wednesday for drug possession during a routine traffic stop. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police tell E! News that Knight (full name Marion Knight Jr.) was pulled over at approximately 5:30 p.m. yesterday when he made an unsafe lane change. Officers ran his name through the system and discovered that he had several bench warrants out for his arrest. (E! Online)
The news comes shortly after buzz about a Snoop Dogg and Suge Knight reunion bubbled online.
Look how happy Snoop is! The Doggfather-turned-Lion Man reportedly ran into his old Death Row Records label chief Suge Knight at the A.V. Club on Monday night. The above photo was snapped and uploaded to Snoop's Instagram with the caption: "N d club wit Suge miss those death row days!" The photo sent a ripple through Snoop's fanbase, with some people torn over their rekindled friendship. (Many still conspire that Knight is accountable for fellow Death Row artist 2Pac's 1996 passing and that of the Notorious B.I.G. the next year.) (VIBE)
