Hours after deposed rap mogul MARION 'SUGE' KNIGHTs $2.2-million bail was revoked, police officially charged him
with murder and attempted murder after he allegedly ran over two people, killing one, following an argument in Compton last week, the L.A. TIMES reports.
KNIGHT, 49, allegedly ran over TERRY CARTER and CLE "BONE" SLOAN with his truck in a TAM'S BURGERS parking lot in COMPTON, killing CARTER. According to LT. JOHN CORINA of the SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENt's detectives unit, a confrontation between the three started at around 3p; KNIGHT and the victims were arguing on the set of "Straight Outta Compton," a biopic about the rap group N.W.A, said
KNIGHT attorney JAMES E. BLATT alleged that his client was trying to get away from his attackers after being assaulted when he accidentally ran over the two men over. Prosecutors say KNIGHT's actions were intentional.
KNIGHT is due to make his first court appearance in COMPTON on TUESDAY.
