Not to be outdone by Master P, Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested over the weekend. In a surprise twist, Suge wasn't in trouble in connection with a violent incident but for driving fast and carrying the chronic in Barstow. One can only imagine that Mr. Knight will use the incident to help increase sales of the upcoming Tha Row release, The Very Best of Death Row. Part of the proceeds of the sale of the album are supposed to be going to helping support soldiers returning from Iraq. We here at LAist always knew Suge was a good samaritan at heart.
