While we are so disappointed that Kylie Jenner, Tyga and Iggy Azalea will not be doing a song together, there are several other celebrities that we would love to see share the studio and the stage together.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. The full video of Suge Knight‘s hit and run alleged fatal accident, the outcome is quite appalling, and very graphic. TMZ has obtained the video of Suge Knight running over 2 men, killing one. But according to Suge, he believes the video exonerates him but prosecutors feel the opposite.
Speaking of the actual video footage, Terry Carter‘s family actually asked that TMZ post the video to show what happened. The family’s lawyer, Gary Dordick, tells TMZ:
“The Carter family is pleased you are releasing the video so the public can see what actually occurred and not be forced to speculate based on third party descriptions of the video.”
TMZ blurred the portion where Terry is run over because it was just too gruesome.
Suge drove to a Tam’s Burgers in Compton where Dr. Dre was filming footage connected with the NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Suge had been kicked out of another location shoot 20 minutes earlier, and he claims he went to the burger joint to make peace with Dre.
Watch the video carefully. You see Suge pull up and he is almost instantly confronted by Cle “Bone”Sloan, who did security for the film. You clearly see Bone attacking Suge through the driver’s window, when Suge suddenly throws the truck in reverse, clipping Bone with the side view mirror and knocking him down.
You also see Terry Carter — the man who ended up run over and dead — standing near Bone. Terry moves into the parking lot when Suge guns it again, hitting Bone a second time and mowing Terry down, mortally wounding him.
Suge claims he was not trying to run either man over but instead was trying to escape out of fear he would be killed. Suge’s lawyer claims Bone and Terry both had guns. Check out the video. As Bone lays on the ground you clearly see another man walk up, remove something from Bone and put it in his waistband.
Law enforcement tells TMZ … they believe the video shows that Suge could have escaped after hitting Bone the first time by simply driving down the road. But Suge’s people say the group assembled near the truck was ominous and he feared if he drove past them he’d be shot.
We know Suge claims that multiple people in the crowd — including Terry Carter — were threatening to shoot him.
Check out the clip below:
What are your thoughts once seeing the clip?
Was Suge really trying to protect himself and panicked?
Seem’s like Hip Hop Mogul, Suge Knight just can’t stay out of trouble. But this time things are looking a bit more serious. TMZ reported recently, that after turning himself in for questioning, Suge Knight was arrested for MURDER in a Hit and Run incident that happened Thursday evening. Bail is set at 2 million dollars and according to NBC News, Knight maybe facing up to 30 years in Prison.
Witnesses say in the midst of shooting a commercial for an Ice Cube and Dr. Dre movie, Suge Knight drove up to the scene. In the process, Suge ended up getting into a physical push and shove with Dr. Dre’s security. Off-duty officers got wind of the altercation and ordered Suge to leave.
Soon after the first incident, Terry Carter called Suge and said he had contacted Dre and was told to bring Suge by the next location where they could work out their problems. Suge says, he took Carter up on the offer, believing that things would work out peacefully. Suge arrived at the next location and he got jumped before he even got out of his truck.
A brawl between Knight and two men sprung out and afterwards, Suge got back in his car, and drove backwards over his friend, Terry’s head; which killed him.
TMZ also reported that Knight was in fear of his own life due to complications from his own previous injuries. A couple months back, Suge Knight was shot 6 times at Chris Brown‘s Pre VMA’s party and most recently almost lost his life to a blood clot.
Dr. Dre is calling BS on Suge Knight for suggesting the good Doc asked Suge to come to the set to make peace with him.
Sources connected with Dre tell us … he scoffed when he was told Suge is claiming Terry Carter — the man he struck and killed — was bringing Suge to the set because Dre wanted to end their beef.
TMZ broke the story … less than an hour before the hit and run, Suge went to another set location but was thrown out by Dre’s security. Sources connected with Suge say he got a call from Carter who said he had just spoken with Dre and the Beats mogul said he wanted Suge to return so he could make peace.
Our Dre sources say it never happened, and note it’s pretty convenient the only other person who has first-hand knowledge is dead because Suge killed him.
As for why Dre and his people didn’t want Suge around … we’re told it’s because they view Suge as having a big fat target on his back. They say the shooting last Summer where Suge was hit 6 times is proof enough … he has enemies, and Dre didn’t want him and his people in the line of fire.
It looks like Suge may be put away for good this time around. He just can’t seem to shake trouble.
