Former record executive Suge Knight is currently in custody after running over two men, and killing one, during an incident at a burger joint in Compton on January 29th. Knight claims that he was being ambushed when he injured Cle “Bone” Sloan and killed Terry Carter. He is facing life in prison for Carter’s death but feels that video footage obtained by TMZ will exonerate him.
In the graphic video below Suge can clearly be seen backing up over Sloan and striking Carter with his Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, what is in question is intent. Knight claims that several men with guns approached his vehicle and that he was acting in self-defense. But attorneys for Carter’s family insist that it shows Knight acted recklessly and could have avoided the fatality.
“The Carter family is pleased you are releasing the video so the public can see what actually occurred and not be forced to speculate based on third party descriptions of the video,” Carter’s family told TMZ.
**WARNING. VIDEO IS GRAPHIC**
Knight has pled not guilty, is currently being held without bail and is expected to be back in LA court today. He has been in and out of the hospital claiming several illnesses, including blindness and blind clots.
