Suge Ones: Founder Of Deathrow Records Murders Movie Crewman

by January 30, 2015 0 comments

Yesterday, founder of Deathrow Records, Suge Knight, who was shot six times during this past summer, killed one man and severely injured another on the set of Straight Out Of Compton, an upcoming N.W.A. biopic. The two men, both members of the film crew, apparently had an argument with Knight on the set of the movie. Dr. Dre, The Game and Ice Cube were said to be present. TMZ was the first to report

Suge Knight got into a fight on the set of a film project in Compton, and ran over a man and we’re told the victim is dead.

We’re told a fight broke out between Suge and 2 crew members. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse … and ran over a bystander.

Yikes! Cube or Dre should have stepped in and passed a blunt.

Knight supposedly feared for his health, in regards to his having been shot recently, and drove off in a panic. However, Knight – who is most famous for hanging Vanilla Ice off of a hotel balcony in the 90s, and more recently for attacking a paparazzi alongside comedian Katt Williams – followed the men after the original spat, and it was in this second location that he ran over them.

The confrontation began around 3 p.m. when Knight and two unidentified men began arguing on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” a biopic about the group NWA, said Capt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detective’s unit.

At least one of the victims was a member of the film crew, Corina said.

About 20 minutes after the alleged argument on set, the victims visited Tam’s Burgers near Central and East Rosecrans avenues, authorities said.

Knight is believed to have followed the men in his truck before running them over the parking lot, Corina said.

Witnesses said the truck hit the men, then backed over them before leaving the scene.

One of the two men, 55, died at the scene while the other, 51, was critically injured. Early this morning, Knight showed up to LAPD’s West Hollywood precinct and turned himself in. He was arrested on suspicion of murder, and his bail is posted at $2-million.

The Deathrow Records founder may find himself on death row soon enough. Oh, snap!

Okay, that was tasteless. I’m sorry.
