Marion "Suge" Knight
On May 19, 2010, the founder of Death Row Records, Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested for pointing a gun at an unidentified man. His lawyer, Marc Brumer, predicts that all charges will be dropped because Knight cooperated fully with police, and they never actually found a gun in his possession. Brumer suggests the unidentified man should be investigated for making a false allegation.

Knight has had his share of legal problems before. In March 1997, he was investigated in the drive-by shooting of Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace but was never charged. Knight's brushes with the law included some stints in prison too. In 1992, he received probation for weapons and assault charges, but landed behind bars for five years after he was found guilty of breaking the conditions of his probation when security cameras in a Las Vegas casino captured him committing an assault. He returned to prison again for two months in 2003 because of an association with a gang member, another violation, and later was handed another 10-month term for a violation stemming from a scuffle with a parking valet.
