Marion “Suge” Knight is accused of killing a man with his pickup and the judge refuses to lower his bail of $10-million
Since the altercation in a Compton parking lot in January, Suge Knight has been in custody for striking two men with his pickup and killing one. The judge has set the bail at $10-million and will not budge.
According to TMZ Suge’s request to move to a new facility was also denied during his latest hearing in Los Angeles, as well as his attempt to reduce his bail. Suge’s attorney states that his client is going crazy because the toilet in his cell flushes every 20 minutes consistently on its own and his bed is too small.
Knight’s original bail was set at $25 million back in March because of his criminal past, which makes him a candidate for the three-strike, life in prison law in California.
Suge Knight was originally arrested this past January on a murder charge after a hit and run on the movie set of Straight Outta Compton while Dr. Dre and Ice Cube were both present. Terry Carter, 55, died as a result of his injuries after Knight ran over him with his truck. Actor Che “Bones” Sloan was also injured when the former Hip Hop mogul put his vehicle in reverse and struck the men.
Knight was just convicted of a robbery charge this year alongside comedian Katt Williams after a female photographer claimed that the two men stole her camera. His next court hearing in this case is scheduled for September 17th.
