After he was arrested for murder last week in a fatal hit-and-run, Suge Knight’s bail has been revoked, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department confirmed to Billboard.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