Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, involving a firearm. He was pulled over and taken into custody early this morning.
He was also taken into custody for driving on a suspended license. Knight is still in custody and bail is set at $65,000 ... pretty small amount for Suge.
Authorities said that Knight was arrested in connection to an alleged crime that occurred shortly before his arrest ... but they wouldn't elaborate further.
A witness in the incident told police that the rap executive pointed a gun at another car this morning - while sitting in the driver's seat of his own SUV.
GANGSTA: Suge Knight's 23,869th arrest sounds pretty violent. Dude has a mean streak, though we would too if our mom named us Marion. Please don't murder us.
Reports say after cops received the information, officers located Suge's car in the Los Angeles area and initiated a "high risk stop" - i.e. guns were drawn.
Officers drew their firearms and ordered Suge - and two women - out of the vehicle. Suge was eventually taken into custody and arrested for assault.
Pretty run of the mill stuff for the hip hop mogul. Knight should be free, accept a plea deal and be back on the streets terrorizing people before long.
