UPDATE: According to TMZ Floyd Mayweather will NOT post bail for Suge Knight.

 

Former Death Row Records mogul Marion “Suge” Knight was arraigned on Murder charges today in a Los Angeles Court today, in connection with a Hit and Run earlier this year that led to the death of Terry Carter.

During the arraignment Suge Knight pled not guilty. The attorney for Knight, Matthew Fletcher, requested the bail amount to once again be reduced. This time from the current $10 million down to $5 million. Bail was previously set at $25 million.

Fletcher argued that because Cle Sloan, who was struck by Knight’s vehicle, testified that it wasn’t Suge Knight driving the vehicle, that it should be grounds to reduce bail to a reasonable amount. He then added “This isn’t a clear cut case.”

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen denied the request, though allowed another pre-trial hearing to be heard related to bail on May 29th.

When asked after the arraignment if Knight would be able to make the $10 million bail, Knight’s Attorney said they were very optimistic and claimed that Floyd Mayweather Jr. would assist with bail after the “Super Fight” with Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd.

TMZ has since reported that Floyd Mayweather will not post bail. Knight’s attorney is reported to have gone on information from Suge Knight’s family, not Knight or Mayweather directly, when he made that statement.

 A jury trial is set to begin on July 7th and is scheduled to last for three weeks.
