According to an AP report, Marion “Suge” Knight was arrested last night in Gardena after someone reported that the notorious rap impresario “had pointed a gun at him in South Los Angeles.” The police are investigating this allegation of “assault with a deadly weapon.” Besides assault, the report adds, Knight (who's a convicted felon) “was held on a warrant alleging he drove with a suspended license.”
LAist adds that this morning Knight had already been bailed out, but the investigation continues.
