Suge Knight arrested for beating up woman



Tbdmarionsugeknight082808 Marion "Suge" Knight, whom we haven't heard from since he got knocked out in a fight in Hollywood back in May, was arrested in Las Vegas on Wednesday for allegedly beating a woman while holding a knife. Classy.

"This was apparently Marion Knight's girlfriend that was riding with him in his car at the time," police Lt. Chris Carroll told the local CBS affiliate. "She started punching him while in the car (he was driving) in an effort to escape she grabbed the steering wheel and steered it to the curb. That's when she got out of the car and tried to run and he caught up to her."

Knight was booked for assault with a deadly weapon, battery, domestic violence and possession of a controlled substance. It's sad to see Death Row Records wasn't the only thing he's ruined. And yet we still wonder, why is his nickname not spelled "Shug," anyway?
