LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former hip-hop mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has been arrested on an outstanding warrant after being pulled over for a traffic violation in Los Angeles.
Police Officer Sara Faden says the founder of Death Row Records was stopped shortly after midnight Wednesday near Beverly Hills. She declined to say what the alleged traffic violation was.

Officers determined Knight was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant and police took him into custody. Records show he was booked into county jail and released several hours later on $20,000 bail.
A warrant was issued for Knight's arrest in February after he skipped a court appearance for driving without a license.
