Former Death Row Records owner Marion "Suge" Knight still can't catch a break when it comes to law enforcement as reports claim an arrest warrant has been issued for him.
According to reports, the warrant stems from Knight pulling a no-show for a recent court appearance.
Suge Knight is now a wanted man ... because a judge just issued a bench warrant for his arrest ... and it's pretty ironic, because he was supposed to show up on another warrant that was issued for not showing up. TMZ broke the story ... Suge was pulled over in September for driving without license plates. When he was pulled over cops realized he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in another case. Suge was then arrested, hauled off to jail, released and ordered to appear in court today. Suge was a no-show, so the judge ordered the deputies to haul his butt into court and set bail at $26K. (TMZ)
In 2012, Suge ran into legal 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)
He created some significant buzz after reuniting with ex-Death Row Records artist Snoop Dogg last year.
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)
Snoop later admitted he wanted to be a bigger man and finally put an end to their distanced relationship.
"I think time heals all wounds," Snoop said in an interview. "And then being a bigger man and being one who accepts responsibility and right or wrong, I like saving lives, I don't like to take lives. If that means putting my hand out saying I'm wrong, I apologize and we be cool, I'll do that as opposed to me going behind my back, pulling a gun out and getting somebody or me doing something vicious to you."
