Movie Pilot's celebrity savant

Deathrow Records founder Suge Knight has been arrested for murder after a fight on the movie set for the N.W.A biopic Straight Out of Compton led to a man being ran over and killed.

Knight, who was driving the vehicle, fled the scene after he reversed into two men - fatally injuring one of them.

It is reported that the hit-and-run took place after an argument with security caused Knight to throw his vehicle into reverse in a fit of rage and run over Terry Carter and Cle "Bone" Sloane.

Carter , who is reportedly a friend of Knight's, was critically injured and later died on the scene after attempts at CPR failed.

Sources such as Entertainment Weekly and Billboard are reporting that the murder victim is in fact 86-year-old Battlestar Galactica actor, Terry Carter although other sources such as the L.A. Times are yet to confirm the identity of the dead man, although they list his age as 55.

Actor and producer Cle "Bone" Sloane of Training Day fame is in a stable condition and his injuries are not life-threatening.

Dr. Dre and Ice Cube were on set filming earlier in the day, but a representative for Ice Cube claims that the production had wrapped by the time that the fight took place and neither of the rappers were at the scene.

Knight has since handed himself in for questioning and is being formally charged with murder and his bail is set at $2 million.

It is not the first time that the rap producer has been accused of murder, there are many theories that accuse Knight of being highly involved in the deaths of both legendary rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

UPDATE: More details about Knight's murder charge have been unveiled and it looks like this was definitely no accident.

Police reports reveal that Knight was involved in an argument with two men on the Straight Out of Compton set at 3pm. He then waited 20 minutes and followed them to a burger joint where he reversed over the men twice in front of numerous witnesses.
