Rap Mogul Suge Knight Expected To Post $2M Bail Monday

LOS ANGELES ( — Rap mogul Suge Knight is expected to post $2 million bail Monday, according to his attorney.

Knight, who has been jailed since surrendering to Los Angeles police early Friday morning, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on murder charges.

On Thursday, officials said the 49-year-old co-founder of Death Row Records ran over two men with his vehicle outside a fast food restaurant in Compton. One of the victims, 55-year-old Terry Carter, died, and actor Cle "Bone" Sloan, 51, was injured.

The sheriff's department said it appeared Knight aimed his vehicle in the direction of the men following an argument with Sloan. Knight's attorney, Jame Blatt, said that his client was being attacked by a group of men and merely trying to escape the scene when the accident occurred.

Blatt said he hopes to see video of the incident that he believes will clear his client.

Police said Sunday no arrangement was made for the attorney to view the video.
