Suge Knight’s Fatal Hit-and-Run Caught on Video
Evidence in Suge Knight's murder trial continues to pile up as video footage of the actual hit and run, which left one man dead, has surfaced.
The gruesome visual, obtained by TMZ, shows Knight driving his red pick up truck and striking Cle "Bone" Sloan and Terry Carter. While there is no audio, it is clear that there is some sort of verbal exchange that takes place before Knight puts his truck in reverse, hitting Sloan. He then drives forward and runs over Carter, subsequently killing him.
In January, a video of the altercation surfaced, which seemed to support Knight’s claims that he was ambushed by Carter and Sloan. The two men, as illustrated in the new video footage, could have been armed. As Carter lays lifeless on the ground, a man approaches his body and removes property -- assumed to be a gun -- and places it in his own waistband.
According to TMZ, Knight’s beef with the men initiated when he tried to crash the set of the NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Knight was kicked out of another filming session 20 minutes prior to approaching the Tam’s Burger parking lot in Compton where an additional set was located. Knight claims he was there to smooth things over with Dr. Dre, but before he could get to the Doc he encountered Carter and Sloan.
The former CEO of Death Row Records has been in police custody since Feb. 3. He has pled not guilty to murder charges, including attempted murder. If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
