Here’s Why Suge Knight Was On The Straight Outta Compton Set During Fatal Hit-And-Run

More details are coming to light about the circumstances surrounding Suge Knight’s fatal hit-and-run. According to TMZ, sources close to Knight say that he was on the set of a Straight Outta Compton promotional shoot to meet with Dr. Dre to talk about how he was being portrayed in the film. Apparently, Dre never asked Knight’s permission to use his likeness in the movie and, if the new trailer for the movie is any indication, someone looking an awful lot like Knight is seen beating up someone in a studio. The meeting was arranged by Knight’s friend Terry Carter, but it never happened because Knight got into a fight with actor Cle Sloan, which ended in Knight running over and killing Carter and injuring a number of others, including Sloan. Knight has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run. Knight will stay in prison for at least the next six weeks while the case against him is being prepared.
