Suge Knight released from Las Vegas jail


LAS VEGAS -- Marion "Suge" Knight has been released from a Las Vegas jail.

The founder of bankrupt Death Row Records posted $19,000 bail Wednesday and promised to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court on Sept. 26 on felony assault and drug charges.

Police arrested the hip hop mogul on Wednesday morning after officers say they saw him beat his girlfriend while brandishing a knife in a parking lot near the Las Vegas Strip.

The woman was not stabbed, but she was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police say Knight had the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested.

A Clark County Detention Center clerk says records do not indicate when Knight was released.
