Suge Knight Arrested

Rap mogul MARION 'SUGE' KNIGHT has been booked on suspicion of violating his parole after police found marijuana in his truck during a traffic stop.

Knight was arrested on Saturday evening (05FEB05) in Barstow, California, and held by sheriff's officials pending his transfer to state prison, says sheriff's Corporal LORRAINE RISER.

State officials will then review his case to determine if he should be held or released, adds Riser.

Police report that they searched Knight's FORD pickup and found marijuana after pulling him over for making an unsafe U-turn. He was cited for not having insurance.

A woman in the vehicle, identified as 18-year-old ALEXIS WILKENSON of Las Vegas, Nevada, allegedly had fake identification and was arrested for investigation of providing false information to police. She was later released.

Knight, 39, co-founder of the pioneering rap label DEATH ROW RECORDS, was released from prison in 2001 after serving time for assault and weapons violations. He recently served an additional 10-month prison sentence for violating his parole and striking a Hollywood nightclub valet.
