Early Saturday morning, June 21st, outside of Papas nightclub in Los Angeles, my client Suge Knight was attending a meeting with Minister Tony Mohammed to work on plans for the upcoming 100,000-man March for Peace.
Mr. Knight left the club with a group of other people, including Mr. Mohammed, and went to retrieve his car. At this time another
patron, while waiting for his vehicle, got angry and shoved the valet.
There were numerous individuals present and many of them have already given statements--which we have provided to the Parole and Community Services Department--indicating Mr. Knight was not involved in this altercation.
One of those individuals is Mr. Mohammad, who will provide a statement today corroborating Mr. Knight's innocence.
A week later, on June 27th, Mr. Knight's parole agent arrested him for allegedly being involved in an altercation. We have not received any reports from any witnesses indicating that Mr. Knight was involved in this or any other altercation on June 21st.
Mr. Knight maintains his innocence in this matter and believes that, after a thorough investigation by the parole department, he will be exonerated.
Unfortunately, for Mr. Knight, it appears that he was arrested prior to a full investigation of the allegation. We have provided names and statements of at least seven independent witnesses who were present on June 21st.
The parole department apparently was not aware that any of these individuals had been present.
We are confident that Mr. Knight has committed no misconduct and will be completely exonerated. We sincerely hope that, after speaking to these witnesses, the parole department will move to release Mr. Knight as quickly as possible.
