Suge Knight arrested for alleged assault

Co-founder of Death Row Records stopped by CHP

Ex-rap music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has been arrested in Los Angeles for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say the co-founder of Death Row Records was stopped by California Highway Patrol officers in suburban Gardena about 12:30 a.m. Thursday. Officer April Harding says someone had called police an hour earlier to report Knight had pointed a gun at him in South Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old convicted felon was driving a white Cadillac Escalade when he was stopped and handed over to Los Angeles police. Besides assault, he was held on a warrant alleging he drove with a suspended license.

A call to Knight's attorney, Marc Brumer, was not immediately returned.
