DEATH ROW RECORDS founder MARION "SUGE" KNIGHT has turned himself into authorities, after being involved in a fatal hit and run. TMZ reports KNIGHT, "got into a fight on the set of a film project in COMPTON, ran over a man who later died, and then fled the scene."
Law enforcement sources have now told TMZ that after interviewing KNIGHT, they have formally arrested him on murder charges, and his bail has been set at $2 million.
TERRY CARTER, a music producer and a friend of Knight, has been identified as the man fatally injured.
TMZ has posted a video from the crime scene:
Multiple witnesses told TMZ, "a movie shoot -- involving ICE CUBE and DR. DRE -- was going down when SUGE pulled up in his car. We're told security told SUGE to leave and that's when trouble began. A fight broke out between SUGE and 2 men. SUGE got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse ... and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries."
