It’s more legal trouble for rap mogul, Suge Knight, according to California police.
TMZ reports law enforcement is searching for Knight in connection with what could be his most serious crime yet: a hit and run that resulted in a man’s death.
According to TMZ, all Southern California law enforcement has been issued a bulletin that says to “be on the lookout” for Knight, who is considered armed and dangerous. The site reports that multiple witnesses described seeing Knight arrive at a movie shoot involving Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, where he reportedly got into a fight with two men.
According to TMZ’s report, “Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse… and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries.”
A video posted to the site shows EMTs trying to resuscitate a man lying on the ground.
According to TMZ’s reporting, it’s unknown whether the victim had anything to do with the movie — allegedly, by the time the fight happened, production had wrapped up and Ice Cube and Dr. Dre had already left for the day.
TMZ reports the victim was a friend of Knight’s who arrived at the shoot with the rapper. Two other people were also hit — including actor Cle Sloan — and both are hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, TMZ says.
Knight most recently faced charges for his role in an alleged robbery. He faced violent felony charges for that offense and could face 30 years to life in prison if convicted, according to prior reports. That incident happened only about a week after Knight was released from the hospital after being shot six times at a nightclub. Both incidents are still under investigation by police.
According to TMZ, Knight’s lawyers are arranging his surrender to a California sheriff’s office for the hit and run charges.
