Death Row Records Founder Suge Knight Arrested On Gun Charge

LOS ANGELES, CA – Ex-rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight was arrested Thursday after he allegedly pointed a gun at a man and then drove off in his Cadillac, police said.

Knight, 45, was stopped by California Highway Patrol officers in suburban Gardena at about 12:30 a.m. and immediately turned over to Los Angeles police who swarmed around his white Escalade, according to police and news videos.

Knight was booked for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon — a gun — and also on a misdemeanor warrant alleging that he drove with a suspended license, Harding said.

He was being held on $65,000 bail, she said. (UPDATE: He posted bail last night)

It was not immediately clear whether Knight, a convicted felon, was still on parole. If he is, carrying a gun would be a parole violation that could end him back in jail.

Um, convicted felon puts him back in jail on a federal beef, no? I somehow doubt his previous felony was one of the white-collar ones that doesn’t make you a prohibited person
