In an early contender for “Least Surprise, Still Horrific” headline of the year, rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been arrested for suspicion of murder after running over two men with his car, killing one. Bail has been set at $2 million.
Reports say that Knight arrived to the set of Straight Outta Compton, an N.W.A. biopic, yesterday at around 3pm. There he argued with two men, and was asked to leave by security. About 20 minutes later, Knight followed the two men to a nearby restaurant where witnesses say, “the truck hit the men, then backed over them before leaving the scene.”
The two victims haven’t been officially identified, but Capt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives unit has confirmed that the surviving victim, a 51-year-old with undisclosed injuries, was working on the film. The other victim, 55, died from his injuries.
