It seems more and more obvious that the purported video of Suge Knight running over two men and killing one of them in Compton will be at the heart of both the defense and the prosecution when the case comes to trial.
It should come as no surprise that TMZ has got and posted a copy of the video in all its gruesome details (which you can see below).
As we reported, Knight – who’s scheduled to be back in court today (03-09-15) – drove to a Tam’s Burgers in Compton where Dr. Dre was filming footage connected with the NWA biopic, “Straight Outta Compton.” Knight had been kicked out of another location shoot 20 minutes earlier, and he claims he went to the burger place to make peace with Dre.
When you watch the video, Knight pulls up and is almost instantly confronted by Cle “Bone” Sloan, who did security for the film. Bone attacks Knight through the driver’s window, when the former music mogul suddenly throws the truck in reverse, clipping Bone with the side view mirror and knocking him down.
Here’s more from TMZ:
You also see Terry Carter — the man who ended up run over and dead — standing near Bone. Terry moves into the parking lot when Suge guns it again, hitting Bone a second time and mowing Terry down, mortally wounding him.
Suge claims he was not trying to run either man over but instead was trying to escape out of fear he would be killed. Suge’s lawyer claims Bone and Terry both had guns. Check out the video. As Bone lays on the ground you clearly see another man walk up, remove something from Bone and put it in his waistband.
Law enforcement tells TMZ … they believe the video shows that Suge could have escaped after hitting Bone the first time by simply driving down the road. But Suge’s people say the group assembled near the truck was ominous and he feared if he drove past them he’d be shot.
We know Suge claims that multiple people in the crowd — including Terry Carter — were threatening to shoot him.
Suge believes the video exonerates him. Prosecutors feel the opposite.
(We blurred the portion where Terry is run over … it’s just too gruesome.)
“The Carter family is pleased you are releasing the video so the public can see what actually occurred and not be forced to speculate based on third party descriptions of the video,” says the family’s attorney, Gary Dordick to TMZ.
