As Straight Outta Compton is flourishing in the box office, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube filed an objection against the Suge Knight’s hit and run case they were named in, that resulted in the injury of Cle “Bone” Sloan and death of Terry Carter.
According to the N.W.A members, Suge appeared on the set of a commercial, unhappy at his “inaccurate” portrayal in the movie, despite Dre’s restraining order against Suge. Sloan requested for Suge to leave the set and Carter was playing the peacemaker. Sloan and Carter arranged for a meeting in a restaurant’s parking lot a few blocks over and that’s where everything went down.
Their motion states:
These allegations plainly demonstrate that allowing Suge to remain at the base camp posed a serious risk that Suge could have injured someone at the camp — including Dr. Dre, Bone or one of the numerous cast and crew working on the film. Certainly, the risk that Suge might leave the base camp and proceed to his fatal confrontation with Carter was no more foreseeable than the possibility that Suge would injure or kill someone else if he had been permitted to stay.
In other words, they didn’t know that things would escalate that way and they shouldn’t be held liable. Sounds like a pretty good argument to me. Stay tuned for any updates on this story.
