Suge Knight pleads NOT GUILTY to murder in hit-and-run case

Rapper Suge Knight has pleaded not guilty to murder in a hit-and-run case today.

\n

The music mogul appeared in court today to deny all charges, after two men were killed in the fatal incident in Compton, California, in January.

\n

His bail reportedly remains at $10million, after Los Angeles County Judge Ronald Coen denied a request to reduce it.

\n

Knight faces one count of murder for Terry Carter’s death, one of attempted murder after Cle “Bone” Sloan was injured in the incident, and one count of hit-and-run.

\n

A jury trial is now set for July 7.

\n

\n

A nine-minute video showing Suge’s truck mowing down two men at a drive-thru in LA was previously played in court.

\n

The footage captured by a burger restaurant’s camera shows the music producer’s truck pull up the car park to talk to several men.

\n

At the time of the incident on January 29th, the restaurant was the set of a video shoot for an upcoming documentary called “Straight Outta Compton.”

\n

Cle “Bone” Sloan was working as a security guard for the film crew and can be seen approaching Knight after he pulls up.

\n

After a few moments the music boss is seen reversing his vehicle knocking Sloan, 51, to the ground with the truck’s side view mirror.

\n

\n

The rapper kept his head down as he entered court

At that point Terry Carter, 55, is seen entering the frame.

\n

Knight’s Ford F150 is then seen speeding forward ploughing in to both men and leaving Carter for dead.

\n

The footage continues as a third man is seen running up to Sloan, still lying on the ground, and removing something from his waistband.

\n

Knight claimed he didn’t mean to run over either man, and instead was trying to flee the scene.

\n

He was scared for his life because both men were armed, he said.
