Marion 'Suge' Knight arrested Saturday on outstanding warrant, is quickly released
Rap legend Marion “Suge” Knight was arrested on an outstanding traffic warrant early Saturday as he left a restaurant at Universal City Walk, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department officials. He was released after about an hour.
Knight had just come out of the unidentified restaurant about 12:30 a.m. when he was stopped by sheriff’s deputies, who discovered that he was wanted on a minor traffic warrant issued recently in Beverly Hills, according to Sgt. Shawn Ruda of the sheriff’s West Hollywood Station.
Knight was brought to West Hollywood, where he was cited and released, with the agreement that he appear in court within about two months, Ruda said.
He said that Knight, who has a long arrest record, was not doing anything wrong when he was stopped, and voluntarily agreed to talk to the deputies.
“A person who’s been arrested multiple times, you see if he has any outstanding warrants,” Ruda said. “And he did.”
