Suge Knight Arrested on Traffic, Drug Charges in Las Vegas

Rap music mogul Suge Knight has a date with a Las Vegas judge after he was arrested on traffic warrant and misdemeanor drug charges.

Officer Laura Meltzer says the 46-year-old former Death Row Records executive was stopped driving a black Bentley with California plates around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday on a street just off Flamingo Road west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Knight was accused of making an unsafe lane change and possession of less than one ounce of a controlled substance and released from jail without bail. He's due March 12 in Las Vegas Municipal Court.
