The L.A County District Attorney’s Office has announced in a statement that Suge Knight has been charged with “one count of attempted murder, two counts of hit-and-run with an allegation that he committed a serious and violent felony while out on bail in another pending case.”
The Deathrow Records founder was arrested last Friday (after turning himself in), in connection with a deadly hit-and-run in Los Angeles the day before. The incident occurred near the set of a promotional shoot for the upcoming N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton.
If convicted, Knight faces up to life imprisonment.
Rest In Peace Terry Carter.
