WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say rap mogul Marion “Suge” (shug) Knight has been arrested on suspicion of murder in a fatal hit-and-run in Los Angeles.
Sgt. Diane Hecht of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s information office said Knight was arrested at about 3 a.m. and is being held on $2 million bail. She says he could face a murder charge.
Hecht says Knight is being held at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station.
Knight turned himself in to authorities early Friday after his attorney said the rap mogul accidentally ran over and killed a friend and injured another man as he fled attackers.
