Video of Suge Knight plowing into two men in his pick-up truck released as court determines he should stand trail for murder

Video of Suge Knight plowing into two men in his pick up truck released as court determines he should stand trail for murder
Video of Marion 'Suge' Knight plowing into two men with his pickup truck and other key evidence in the former rap music mogul's murder case was released Friday by a Los Angeles court.

The footage played by a prosecutor shows the co-founder of Death Row Record's pickup truck pulling up to the driveway of the burger stand in Compton on January 18.

Cle 'Bone' Sloan then approaches the driver's side window and punches the 49-year-old in response to a flurry of insults.

Knight's pickup is seen backing up, throwing Sloan to the ground before the truck drives over his legs and then plows over Terry Carter - who died as a result.

Among the other key pieces of evidence shown to the court were images of Knight taken immediately after his arrest.

They included close-ups, intended to show the injuries he claims he sustained during the deadly incident.

An hour-long interview with Sloan, who survived, describing what happened.

Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen reviewed the items before determining Knight should stand trial on murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. He authorized their release after a request by The Associated Press.

Coen ruled Thursday that there was enough evidence for Knight, 49, to stand trial on charges he killed Terry Carter and attempted to kill Sloan during a parking lot confrontation in late January.

Knight has pleaded not guilty. His attorney has said Knight was fleeing an ambush by Sloan and others when he hit the men outside a Compton burger stand.

The entire incident took approximately 30 seconds. The video, shot by a surveillance camera monitoring the drive-thru at the burger stand, continues until the arrival of a paramedic.

Knight's attorney, Matt Fletcher, has said the video appears to show an associate of Sloan's taking a gun off of him after he is run over, and jurors likely will be shown an enhanced version of the video.

Knight turned himself in to authorities the morning after the incident. Detectives took pictures of him to try to show he did not have any serious injuries from the attack.

Sloan's interview with detectives will also be crucial to the case since he is unlikely to repeat the lucid account of the event and his own actions that he gave investigators.
