Suge Knight to face criminal charges

Mogul faces battery, drug possession charges

The Clark County district attorney’s office in Nevada is seeking criminal charges against hip-hop mogul Marion “Suge” Knight.

A criminal complaint sent to the Las Vegas Justice Court on Monday charges Knight with two counts of felony drug possession and one count of misdemeanor battery.

A court spokeswoman says the charges were being processed Tuesday.

Knight’s attorney wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Police allege they saw the founder of bankrupt Death Row Records beating his girlfriend while brandishing a knife in a parking lot near the Las Vegas Strip in August.

Authorities said the woman wasn’t stabbed, but was treated at a hospital for injuries. Police say Knight had the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone when they arrested him.

Knight was later released after posting $19,000 bail.
