Arrest Warrant Issued for Suge Knight

Former Death Row Records CEO wanted for skipping various court dates.

Suge Knight could end up back in police custody sometime soon.

Authorities issued an arrest warrant for Knight this morning after he skipped his latest court date, which stemmed from him missing a previous court date.

TMZ detailed Knight's revolving door of legal struggles, explaining that the once powerful music mogul will be hauled into court for repeatedly disregarding his obligations. His bail is set for $26,000.

Knight, 48, was most recently busted in September for driving erratically, and without plates. A search of his name brought up an outstanding warrant from previously driving without a license. He was arrested, released and ordered to appear in court today.

Oddly enough, Knight is never really in hiding. TMZ tends to catch him out and about pretty often, authorities mistakenly pulled guns on him early last month, and he recently did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, commemorating the 20-year anniversary of Snoop's Doggystyle debut. 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.
