'Suge' Knight pleads guilty

February 19, 2009|Associated Press

Rap producer Marion "Suge" Knight has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery for beating a woman in a Las Vegas parking lot last year.

Knight, 43, entered the plea in Las Vegas Justice Court on Tuesday in a deal that dismissed two felony drug charges and one felony coercion charge stemming from the August incident.

Police said officers witnessed the co-founder of Death Row Records striking Melissa Isaac while holding a knife in a parking lot near the Las Vegas Strip.

Justice of the Peace Eric Goodman ordered Knight to receive counseling and pay a $340 fine.

Earlier this week, police using Tasers broke up an early morning fight that sent Knight to an Arizona hospital for treatment of face injuries. Scottsdale police arrested two men after the fracas, which occurred about 3 a.m. Monday at a party at the W Scottsdale Hotel.
