A day after reports surfaced about ex-Death Row Records owner Suge Knight being accused of threatening a man, new footage from the incident has emerged.
In the footage, Suge is shown getting into a heated confrontation with a male employee.
Suge Knight punched a guy hard at an L.A. pot dispensary ... and we got the surveillance video. TMZ broke the story ... Suge got angry at an employee ... allegedly threatening to kill the guy .... after the rapper was told to leave because he didn't have a medical marijuana card. When you watch the video, things start out friendly enough inside the pot shop -- called Medstar Collective -- but turn ugly quickly. Suge and the employee walk out and the mogul socks the guy in the jaw without warning ... then storms away. The employee filed a police report and the cops have the video. Suge is being investigated for making felony criminal threats. (TMZ)
Details of the messy situation scattered across the Internet Monday.
Suge Knight got blazing mad at a weed shop and allegedly threatened to kill one of their employees ... TMZ has learned -- and it may all be over the marijuana payday Suge was expecting to get. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops were summoned Sunday to an L.A. marijuana dispensary -- and when they arrived an employee dropped the dime on Suge. We're told the store owner attempted to defuse the situation while Suge was getting angry for not getting in to the shop ... but it didn't work and that's when Suge really blew up. According to law enforcement sources ... Suge told an employee, "I will kill you." (TMZ)
Despite the allegations, Big Suge denied threatening anyone's life.
We're told police are now investigating Suge for felony criminal threats. Sources close to Suge tell us this is all a misunderstanding over what he thought was going to be a promotional appearance at the dispensary ... where Suge would be paid in cash AND weed. We're told Suge insists he didn't threaten anyone ... but did get a little heated because the shop owner refused to pay him. Always advisable to take the high road ... when dealing with Suge. (TMZ)
In 2012, Suge ran into legal problems with law enforcement out in Las Vegas.
