Suge Knight Arrested, Charged with Murder
He is being held on $2 million bail. TMZ has more details about the incident and why Suge was charged with murder even though they don’t think he intended to kill Terry Carter, who was actually travelling with Suge in his vehicle prior to the altercation.
Law enforcement sources tell us … they have interviewed multiple witnesses who say the man Suge seemed to be after was Cle “Bone” Sloan, an actor who has appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch.”
Suge and Bone were in a physical altercation before he threw his truck in reverse. Witnesses say Suge gunned the car in reverse twice, as if to make sure he hit his target.
The man who died, Terry Carter, was a passenger in the truck when they arrived. He’s a good friend of Suge’s who was apparently dealing with Bone behind the truck when Suge gunned it.
Even though Suge clearly did not intend to kill Carter, in California and most states, if someone in the process of committing a felony accidentally kills someone in the process … he can be charged with murder.
