Former Death Row Records owner Marion “Suge” Knight is catching some heat this week as reports claim he may have threatened a marijuana store clerk over the weekend.
Details of the messy situation have started to scatter across the Internet.
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 has 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.
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)
