Suge Knight arrested for failure to appear at previous court date

suge-knight-mug-shot-2012.jpgRapper Suge Knight (real name Marion Hugh Knight Jr.) was arrested early Wednesday (Sept. 11) near Beverly Hills, reports TMZ. Knight was reportedly straddling two lanes in a truck that had no license plates.

Upon pulling him over, police tell the site that Knight was sober, but that there was a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a failure to appear in court on a driving on a suspended license charge. Police had to take him into custody, where he is being held on $20,000 bail.

This is not Knight's first run in with the law. He has been in and out of prison for probation violations, was arrested back in May 2010 for assault with a deadly weapon and then arrested again in February 2012 for pot possession (mug shot at right from that incident).
