Lawyer claims Suge Knight has vision limitations
An attorney defending rap mogul Suge Knight stated that his client’s vision impairment contributed to the hit-and-run accident he was involved with in January, a March 11 article of Reuters stated.
The lawyer for the 49-year-old Death Row Records CEO says that Knight is blind one eye due to glaucoma, and that should be taken into consideration in the accident where he struck Terry Carter and Cle “Bone” Sloan with his car in Compton last January. Carter reportedly was killed in the collision while Sloan suffered injuries. A video from a security camera revealed that, prior to the incident, Knight was fist fighting with Sloan through the window before leaving the scene. Knight’s attorney argues that Carter had threatened to shoot Knight, and, because Knight could not see if Carter was wielding a gun during an altercation, he immediately sped off. Charges of murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run were filed against Knight, who pleaded not guilty.
