Suge Knight’s Bail Revoked, Considered a Flight Risk
Billboard obtained the information from a spokeswoman at the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, who states Knight is considered a flight risk. With his past issues with the law as well as "possible witness intimidation," he is viewed as a "three-strike candidate" in California and could face a harsher sentence. This is due to the fact he's already been convicted of multiple violent crimes.
Knight's lawyer, James Blatt, is currently working on the situation. Hours after the tragic incident, Blatt claimed his client was involved in an accident as a result of the altercation. “He was in the process of being physically assaulted by two men and in an effort to escape he unfortunately hit two (other) individuals,” he told The Associated Press. “He was in his car trying to escape.”
On Jan. 29, the Death Row Records co-founder arrived to the 'Straight Outta Compton' movie set in Compton to reportedly meet with Dr. Dre to squash their past beef. However, instead he was allegedly attacked at the location once he exited his vehicle. Knight retreated back to his truck, which he drove in reverse and ran over two men -- killing one. He turned himself in hours later and was arrested and charged with murder.
