Suge Knight Wanted for Beating and Robbing Rapper
Suge Knight is back in trouble with authorities, this time around it’s for allegedly beating and robbing Bay Area rapper Yukmouth. TMZ.com is reporting that the former hip-hop mogul attacked Yukmouth around 10PM Monday (March 22) at a Ralph’s grocery store in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles. Law enforcement sources revealed that Knight and 10 members of his entourage beat the Oakland, California native — who also makes up one-half of the hip-hop duo Luniz — before robbing him for $92,000 in jewelry.
Although it is unclear what caused the altercation, Knight and his accomplices fled the scene. Police are still looking for the 44-year-old, who also has a misdemeanor warrant out from a previous incident.
Knight has a hefty reputation of getting into fights. Last year, he was involved in a brawl at a private party in Arizona, which left him hospitalized. In a separate incident, Knight was arrested for kicking and punching girlfriend Melissa Isaacs. The former Death Row labelhead pled guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery. He was ordered to pay a $340 fine and attend domestic violence counseling.
A message left with Yukmouth’s management team was not responded to at press time.
