According to the site, Knight’s car was then searched, turning up a small amount of marijuana. The Death Row Records founder, who is currently on 3 years unsupervised probation for driving with a suspended license, was taken to a nearby jail for processing and released shortly after.

Fischer, who said in September, "Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend, and he remains one of the entertainment industry’s most provocative and enduring myths."
