The LAPD has charged Marion “Suge” Knight with murder after he allegedly ran over two men — killing one — on the set of Straight Outta Compton. Knight turned himself in and is currently being held on $2 million bail in a West Hollywood jail. His attorney James Blatt told the Los Angeles Times that a group of people were “attempting to drag him outside of the vehicle when he made an effort to escape … in fear for his life.” Blatt added, “I am confident Mr. Knight will be exonerated.” Knight is no stranger to fishy, controversial narratives: May we remind you that he was driving the car when Tupac Shakur was killed.
