The lawyer for Marion “Suge” Knight says a video of a confrontation that ended in a fatal hit-and-run appears to show the former rap mogul was ambushed.
Attorney David Kenner says he briefly reviewed the video obtained from a Compton burger stand. The Jan. 29 confrontation left one man dead and another seriously injured.
Suge Knight Will Stay in Jail
Kenner said Wednesday (Feb. 11) that his firm has only had one day with the video but believes it will aid Knight’s defense of murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. Knight remains in jail and has pleaded not guilty.
The attorney declined to discuss the video in detail.
Knight is the co-founder of Death Row Records, which once boasted Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg as its artists.
Details about the video were first reported by TMZ.
