Funder and CEO of Black Kapital Records and co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records Marion “Suge” Knight has been arrested on a murder charge in a fatal hit-and-run in Los Angeles.

Sgt. Diane Hecht of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s information office said Knight was arrested at 3 a.m. and is being held at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station on $2 million bail. The rap mogul turned himself in to the police on Friday after his lawyer said that Suge accidentally killed someone and injured another man as he fled attackers.

“He was in the process of being physically assaulted by two men and in an effort to escape he unfortunately hit two (other) individuals. He was in his car trying to escape.”

According to the Times, Suge had a fight with two men on the set of the upcoming movie ”Straight Outta Compton”, a biopic about the rap group NWA. LA County Sheriff’s Department Capt. John Corina said that Knight followed the two men and ran them over in the parking lot.

Although Knight’s lawyer claims it was an accident, witnesses say that it looked like it was an intentional act. The rap mogul had been arrested numerous time before and is currently awaiting trial on charges of second degree robbery.
