Suge Knight was arrested just outside the Beverly Hills, Calif., border early Wednesday (Sept. 11), TMZ reports. Knight, 48, was picked up on an old warrant after police stopped him at around 12:30 a.m.
The former Death Row Records CEO, currently on probation, was spotted driving erratically in a truck without plates. Authorities pulled Knight over and determined that he was not under the influence, but were still able to bust him for missing a court date stemming from a previous driving without a license offense. He was taken to a nearby jail and released on $20,000 bail less than eight hours later.

Authorities issued a failure-to-appear warrant for Knight back in February. Five months later he was slapped with two bench warrants for not handling a pair of tickets in 2011 and 2012.

Traffic violations are the tip of the iceberg for Knight's legal strife. His rap sheet includes a nine-year sentence and numerous arrests for various physical altercations. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
