Suge Knight’s portrayal in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, “Straight Outta Compton,” may have led to the fatal hit-and-run incident that landed the Death Row Records co-founder behind bars on a murder charge. Insiders in Suge’s camp tell TMZ that the afternoon of the incident, he showed up on a shoot for the film to confront Dr. Dre about his depiction in the movie. The man Suge’s accused of running down, Terry Carter, is said to have set up a meeting with Dre. However, he and Dre never crossed paths because Suge got into it with actor Cle “Bone” Sloan. Suge is also accused of running over Sloan, but he survived.
A recently released trailer for “Straight Outta Compton” hints that Suge may not be portrayed in a friendly light. One scene shows a man resembling the mogul attacking a person in a recording studio.
