Marion “Suge” Knight was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles on a misdemeanor traffic violation and an outstanding warrant, police said.
The arrest occurred about 12:30 a.m., and the rap mogul was taken to the Los Angeles County Jail, where he was held on $20,000 bail, said Officer Cleon Joseph, who did not have details about the warrant or the violation.
To say this isn’t his first brush with the law would be an understatement. In February 2012, Las Vegas police stopped Knight, who was driving a black Bentley, and said they found less than an ounce of marijuana in the vehicle. He was ticketed for making an unsafe lane change.
In December 2010, Knight was arrested at a suburban Los Angeles outdoor shopping mall for failing to appear in court on a traffic violation. At the time, the co-founder of Death Row Records had a warrant issued for failure to appear in court.
