Hip-hop mogul Marion "Suge" Knight is facing felony drug charges and a misdemeanor battery charge in Las Vegas.

The Clark County district attorney's office filed the charges in Las Vegas Justice Court late Friday.

Knight's attorney wasn't immediately available for comment.

Police allege they saw the founder of bankrupt Death Row Records beating his girlfriend while brandishing a knife in a parking lot near the Las Vegas Strip in August.

Authorities said the woman wasn't stabbed, but was treated at a hospital for injuries. Police say Knight had the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested.

Knight was later released after posting $19,000 bail.
