11 February 2015 8:37 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Security footage of an alleged ambush could help Suge Knight's defense against his murder charges, his lawyer said Wednesday. Knight's attorney, David Kenner, did not elaborate about the contents of the video, but he told the AP that details about his client's case have been one-sided and that people should remain objective. TMZ first reported about the unreleased surveillance footage, which comes from a Compton burger joint's parking-lot cameras. Sources told TMZ that the tape shows Cle Sloan and another person pointing guns at Knight before the hip-hop mogul escapes.Sloan's lawyer told the Daily News the report is inaccurate because his client did not have a gun during the hit-and-run. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department has confirmed it has some sort of video from the eatery but hasn't commented on its contents.

Suge Knight Arrested for 'Straight Outta Compton' Murder

30 January 2015 10:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested early this morning in connection with a hit-and-run accident on a commercial set for Straight Outta Compton. The incident killed at least one man, whom many thought was original Battlestar Galactica star Terry Carter, but instead turned out to be a close friend of Knight's. Suge Knight's attorney James Blatt originally confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that one of the victims was in fact the 86-year-old Carter, who also starred in the 1970s TV series McCloud. But this was later corrected. Associated Press claims the unidentified victim who died at a local hospital was 55 years old. TMZ reports that he worked at a tow truck company in Compton, with witnesses claiming him to be, "an Og in the neighborhood." Accounts of the incident, which happened late Thursday, are still not quite clear at this time.
