Suge Knight was charged with marijuana possession after being pulled over by Las Vegas police for an alleged traffic violation, CNN reports. Police found less than one ounce of marijuana in Knight’s car. The rap mogul, who was also ticketed for making an unsafe lane change and had three outstanding traffic warrants, “was released on his own recognizance.” Knight, who spent time in jail in 1997 and 2003 for parole violations, was previously arrested in 2008 on drug and assault charges (which he was later cleared on) and in 2010 for assault with a deadly weapon and driving with a suspended license.
