Suge Knight has NOT been arrested for the unsolved 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur, despite what recent Twitter rumors would have you believe.
The ex-Death Row honcho's crime record includes prison stints for drug possession, assault and probation violations over the last quarter century.
It does not, however, include a recent murder accusation.
Tupac was signed to Knight's label when he was gunned down in a Las Vegas drive-by in 1996, a murder that has never led to an arrest ... possibly because Shakur is not really dead, at least according to conspiracy theorists.
Spokeswoman Laura Meltzer of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which allegedly arrested Knight, spoke to E! about the rumor:
"I don't have any information that [Suge Knight was arrested]. We picked him up on traffic warrants in February ... that is the last arrest I show for him."
Indeed, Knight was busted February 10 for drug possession during a routine traffic stop. Give it a month or two and there will be something else.
Although Knight was never a police suspect in Shakur's murder, he was driving the vehicle Shakur was killed in, resulting in long-held speculation.
Suge, a notorious, hard-ass criminal, is believed by many to have ordered the hit(s) on Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., whose murder is also unsolved.
Knight also fueled the fire recently by saying Tupac might be alive. In other Tupac news, a hologram resurrected him at Coachella last month.
