A graphic video detailing how Suge Knight hit and killed his friend Terry Carter back in January has been published online … and it is really graphic.
In the video published by TMZ, Suge’s red truck can be seen coming to a stop at fast food restaurant Tam’s Burgers entry way. Then actor Cle ‘Bone’ Sloan walks up to the truck and seemingly starts attacking Suge from the window.
Eventually, the rap mogul puts his car in reverse and accelerates, hitting Sloan with the side-view mirror and knocking him to the ground. And as Sloan remained on the ground, Suge’s truck accelerates forward in high speed, hitting Sloan again and then completely running over Terry Carter, who was directly in the truck’s path. Terry died instantly, while Sloan was taken to hospital.
As ENTmania! reported, Suge turned himself in to police a day after the incident, and he’s been sitting in jail ever since on charges of murder, attempted murder and hit and run. He claims that he gunned the truck hard because he feared for his life as he was ambushed … and the video shows a guy walking over to the injured Sloan and taking out what looks like a gun from his body and concealing it behind his shirt. He also maintained he never meant to run over his friend.
Suge’s defense believes the video will exonerate him … but prosecutors think otherwise, saying that he had enough space to make his exit without having to hit anybody, even if he were ambushed.
Meanwhile, Carter’s family claim Suge hit Carter in an act of rage against Sloan, not defense. But Suge’s fiancee claims Carter was part of the ambush, and that he even told Sloan he could shoot her man.
