Suge Knight 'Beaten Up By Akon's Business Manager'

Hip-hop mogul MARION 'SUGE' KNIGHT is recovering from facial injuries after he was allegedly beaten up in a fight with a member of AKON's entourage.
The former Death Row Records owner was attending a private party at the W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona as part of the NBA All-Star weekend (13-15Feb09).
But according to TMZ.com, trouble ensued when two groups of guests in the VIP area clashed - allegedly resulting in Knight being punched twice in the head.
The website claims police were called to the venue at about 3.30am, where Taser guns were used to break up the fight.
Robert Carnes Jr. was arrested and charged with one count of felony aggravated assault - reportedly due to "the severity of the victim's injuries".
Another suspect - only referred to as Anderson - was taken into custody and charged with one count of misdemeanour disorderly conduct. They are both being held in custody at Scottsdale City Jail.
A Scottsdale police report of the incident states, "Officers arrived and watched a group of about 6-8 guests exiting the VIP area. They saw one person, later identified as Robert Carnes Jr., punch the victim in the head two times. Officers deployed Tasers to quell the fight that erupted.
"Officers arrested Carnes Jr. and Anderson for assault and disorderly conduct. The victim was transported to SHC-Osborn hospital where he was treated for facial injuries. Carnes Jr. reported to officers that he is employed as the business manager for singer 'Akon'."
Akon was not present during the fight. His publicist Jaime Cassavechia tells WENN, "Akon had already left the party and was in his hotel room at The W, when the incident occurred."
The rep also denied that Carnes, Jr. handles the singer's business, although she confirms he is a member of the star's camp.
It's the second time in a year that Knight has been beaten up - he was knocked out for three minutes and had to be taken to hospital last May (08) following an altercation outside a Hollywood nightclub.
