(Newser) – Suge Knight, co-founder of Death Row Records, was arrested early this morning in Los Angeles. In a news conference, cops said it was in connection with an alleged crime that occurred just before his arrest. TMZ and Radar report it was for assault with a deadly weapon—and that he was also driving with a suspended license. The New York Daily News notes that Knight is a suspect in the 2009 armed robbery of a hip-hop producer, and adds that he was pulled over and surrounded by about six police officers.
