Bench Warrant Issued For Former Death Row CEO


Former Death Row CEO Marion “Suge” Knight is again facing some legal problems. Reports are that two warrants have been issued for the ex CEO over a pair of driving misdemeanors.


According to reports authorities in California served Knight with a couple of bench warrants each running up to $20,000 for skipping out of tickets he was issued after he was caught driving on a suspended license in 2011 and then again in 2012. The hearings for both cases were held last month.


The 48 year old Compton native has had a series of mishaps over the past few years. In additional to getting shot in the leg and being knocked out while leaving a night club, Suge has filed for bankruptcy. He also collected a debt with the IRS of over $6 million and was also charged with domestic abuse. In 1997 he was sentenced to nine years over a probation violation. He was released in 2001 but two years later was back in jail for violating parole.

Bench warrants were issued under his name in February after he failed to appear in court however he settled those discrepancies. He is yet to publicly respond to his latest traffic problems.
