Marion "Suge" Knight has been released from the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas.

The founder of bankrupt Death Row Records posted $19,000 bail yesterday (Aug. 28) and promised to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court on Sept. 26 on felony assault and drug charges.

Police arrested the hip-hop mogul on Wednesday morning after officers say they saw him beat his girlfriend while brandishing a knife in a parking lot near the Las Vegas Strip.

The woman was not stabbed but she was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police say Knight had the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested.
