Rap mogul Suge Knight has been arrested for allegedly killing a man in a hit-and-run in Compton. Knight is accused of running over two men with his truck Thursday afternoon after an argument on the film set of Straight Outta Compton, a biopic about NWA. The confrontation began around 3 p.m., when Knight and two unidentified men began arguing, said the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. About 20 minutes after the alleged argument on set, the victims visited a burger shack where Knight is believed to have followed them before running them over in the parking lot, officials said. Witnesses said the truck hit the men, then backed over them before leaving the scene. One man was killed, the other severely injured.

There are also reportedly two reasons he would not run, including the toll it would take on the Romneys as well as how bruising the GOP nomination fight would be.
