Suge Knight doch in VIBE-Awards Schlägerei verwickelt?

Keci
Die News um die Ausschreitungen bei den diesjährigen VIBE-Awards letzten Monats in Santa Monica (Kalifornien) reissen nicht ab. Nachdem Young Buck als Messerstecher verhaftet und auf Kaution bis zum Gerichtstermin am 20.Dezmber wieder draussen ist und ein Sprecher von VIBE erklärte, dass die Award-Verleihung auch nächstes Jahr wieder stattfinden wird, ist nun wieder "Death Row"-CEO Marion "Suge" Knight, der bis 2001 fünf Jahre im Knast saß, in den Mittelpunkt der polizeilichen Ermittlungen geraten. Suge, ebenfalls bei der Award-Show anwesend, bestritt kurz danach in einem Interview, in die Sache verwickelt zu sein.

Die Polizei scheint ihm das aber nun doch nicht ganz zu glauben und hatte ihn deswegen zu Beginn der Woche verhört. Angeblich soll er Jimmy "James "Johnson, den Mann der Dr.Dre attackierte, ganz gut kennen, so Zeugen gegenüber der Polizei. Bisher konnte man ihm allerdings keine Beteiligung nachweisen. Die Ermittlungen laufen weiter.

Dr.Dre und Suge Knight gründeten Anfang der 90er das Label "Death Row Records" und veröffentlichten unter anderem sehr erfolgreiche Alben von Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound und Tupac Shakur. Nach Streitigkeiten verliess Dre 1996 das Label und gründete etwas später schließlich Aftermath Records.

Nach Petey Pablo soll diese Woche soll angeblich auch der "King Of The South" Scarface bei "Death Row" unterschrieben haben.

Police and probation officials have been reviewing video of the recent melee at the Vibe Awards to determine if hip-hop mogul Marion "Suge" Knight played a role in the altercation.

Knight has denied any involvement in the incident in which a man attacked Dr. Dre, sparking a brawl that resulted in the attacker being stabbed and seriously injured.

Dre, who real name is Andre Young, met with authorities yesterday (Nov. 30) at the Santa Monica, Calif., police station and demanded that his attacker, Jimmy "James" Johnson, be charged with assault and battery.

Videotape shows Johnson punching Dre on Nov. 16 at the second annual awards show. Johnson was then stabbed, allegedly by rapper Young Buck. Young Buck, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, surrendered Nov. 19 to authorities and is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 20.

Knight and Dre co-founded Death Row Records in the early 1990s but a falling out eventually fractured their business relationship. Knight was released from prison in 2001 after serving time for assault and weapons violations. The conditions for his parole ban him from having any contact with Dre.

Knight entered the awards show without an invitation and sat just a few feet behind Dre, who was receiving a lifetime achievement award.

Attorney Milton Grimes, who once represented Knight and now represents Johnson, denied any involvement by Knight. "As far as I know, my client has not ties whatsoever to Suge Knight," Crimes told the Los Angeles Times.

The Times, citing unidentified sources, said Santa Monica police and agents from the state Department of Corrections have been interviewing witnesses and reviewing video footage to examine Knight's actions before, during and after the melee.

"We are conducting an investigation to determine whether any parole violations took place with [Knight] at the awards show," Alfred Martinez, Los Angeles regional parole administrator for the Corrections Department, told the Times.

"Mr. Knight has some special conditions attached to his parole, and we are working with the Santa Monica police to evaluate all the circumstances that took place that evening," Martinez said.
