Falling Star - Suge Knight

Suge Knight

Don't these rap artists EVER learn?! Another rap music mogul has been arrested on marijuana charges, and it's not his first time.

Death Row Records Exec Suge Knight was arrested on a traffic warrant and misdemeanor drug charges Wednesday evening in Las Vegas. Police spokesman Laura Meltzer says, the 46 year old's black Bentley was pulled over after making an unsafe lane change. Officers then discovered Suge had three outstanding traffic warrants.

Meltzer says, officers searched the vehicle and found less than an ounce of marijuana. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court March 12.

Knight was arrested back in 2008 on drug and aggravated assault charges after leaving a Las Vegas strip club. Reports allege he was beating his girlfriend of three years, and was under the influence of ecstasy and hydrocodone.
