Former Death Row Records owner Marion “Suge” Knight could have a serious problem on his hands courtesy of new footage of him striking a pedestrian in a hit and run incident a few years ago surfacing online.
Footage of Suge getting into an altercation outside of a nightclub and then striking someone as he skidded off has emerged.
We shot the video in December 2012, when Suge and Katt Williams were leaving a Hollywood nightclub. Katt got into it with another clubgoer and Suge came over to give Katt some backup, throwing punches … one of which connected in a big way. Suge then gets in the driver’s seat of his SUV with Katt riding in the back. A large crowd gathers around the SUV and a frustrated/angry Suge then punches it, striking at least one person before screeching away. (TMZ)

This week, Knight’s new attorney spoke out on his recent hit and run footage reaching the public.
Knight’s new attorney claimed during the discovery hearing that the newly surfaced video will help the 49-year-old’s case. “A hundred percent it proved Suge Knight was attacked,” attorney Matt Fletcher said. (CBS Local)
Gruesome video of Suge’s fatal accident emerged online early Monday (March 9) morning.
Terry Carter‘s family asked that TMZ post the video to show what happened. The family’s lawyer, Gary Dordick, tells TMZ, “The Carter family is pleased you are releasing the video so the public can see what actually occurred and not be forced to speculate based on third party descriptions of the video.” We blurred the portion where Terry is run over … it’s just too gruesome.

According to reports, the jailed music executive was hospitalized last week.
Knight reportedly spoke on his own behalf Monday in court — after he fired the lawyers handling his case — and said he was receiving inadequate treatment in jail. Moments later he was taken to the hospital. Sources tell us a doctor informed the rap mogul on Friday his eyesight was getting really bad. Suge reportedly shared that info in court before he was hospitalized. (TMZ)
