In this handout photo provided by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, producer Marion 'Suge' Knight is seen in a police booking photo after his arrest for allegedly stealing a photographers camera Oct. 29, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

L.A. Sheriff's Department also cites possible witness intimidation & Knight's criminal past as factors.

After he was arrested for murder last week in a fatal hit-and-run, Suge Knight's bail has been revoked, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department confirmed to Billboard.

According to a sheriff's department spokeswoman, the Death Row Records co-founder is considered a flight risk, in addition to possible witness intimidation and his criminal past. Because of that past, Knight is a three-strike candidate in California, meaning he's in for a more serious sentence because he's already been convicted of two or more violent crimes or felonies.

The office of Knight's attorney, James Blatt, confirmed they had "heard" that their client's bail was revoked and were looking into it.

Bail had been set at $2.2 million.
