In January, music executive Suge Knight was arrested and charged with murder after he was involved in a fatal hit and run that left one man dead.
And now, ‘TMZ’ has released video footage purportedly of the 49-year-old behind the wheel as he strikes two men with his vehicle.
As ‘In Touch Weekly’ previously reported, Suge was involved in an altercation with three men — including Cle “Bones” Sloan and Terry Carter — while on the set of the upcoming NWA biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton.’

In the clip, you can see Bones (who did security for the movie) confronting Suge in his car, before the music exec throws the car in reverse, hitting Bones with the side view mirror. Terry — who lost his life during the confrontation — comes into the parking lot, where Suge plows over him with his truck.
A lawyer for the controversial exec says he wasn’t purposely trying to run the men over, insisting he was trying to save his own life as he believed the men were armed and ready to kill him.

Law enforcement sources, however, aren’t buying it. ‘TMZ’ claims authorities believe the video in question proves he could’ve escaped after initially clipping Bones while going in reverse and driving down the road — but by going back in the parking lot, he had malicious intent.
Suge’s people say he went out of his way to avoid the road because he had to avert the crowd because multiple people were threatening to shoot him.
