Rap mogul Marion ”Suge” Knight was booked on suspicion of violating his parole after police found marijuana in his truck during a traffic stop in Barstow, Calif., authorities told The Associated Press.
Police said they searched Knight’s Ford pickup and found marijuana after pulling him over for making an unsafe U-turn. He was cited for not having insurance.
A woman in the vehicle, identified as Alexis Wilkenson, 18, of Las Vegas, allegedly had a fake ID and was arrested for investigation of providing false information to police. She was later released.
Knight, 39, cofounder of the pioneering rap label Death Row Records, was released from prison in 2001 after serving time for assault and weapons violations. He recently served an additional 10-month prison sentence for violating his parole and striking a Hollywood nightclub valet.
