Marion Hugh "Suge" Knight

Video of Suge Knight Running Over Victims Released by Judge (Watch)

This evidence photo by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, released by Los Angeles Superior Court, is one of a series of photos showing Marion "Suge" Knight after his arrest after an altercation in which his vehicle struck two men in Compton, Calif., on Jan. 29, 2015.

This evidence photo by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, released by Los Angeles Superior Court, is one of a series of photos showing Marion “Suge” Knight after his arrest after an altercation in which his vehicle struck two men in Compton, Calif., on Jan. 29, 2015.

*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 – more than a month after TMZ posted footage of the incident that it had obtained independently.

Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen reviewed the video and other evidence before ruling Knight should stand trial on murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. He authorized their release after an official request by The Associated Press.

Among the released evidence was an hourlong interview with Cle “Bone” Sloan, who survived being run over by Knight’s truck, and photos of the Death Row Records co-founder after his arrest.

As previously reported, 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 video played by a prosecutor in court shows Knight’s pickup truck pulling up to the driveway of the burger stand and Sloan approaching the driver’s side window. A struggle ensues, and Sloan told detectives he repeatedly punched Knight in response to insults by the former rap mogul. Knight’s pickup is seen backing up, throwing Sloan to the ground before the truck drives over his legs and then plows over Carter.

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.

The footage is likely to be used by both sides during Knight’s trial.

Watch below:

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. In court on Monday, Sloan repeatedly said he didn’t remember the incident and refused to identify Knight as the person who injured him, saying he didn’t want to be a “snitch.”

*Jamie Foxx says he was inspired to write the title track of his upcoming album “Hollywood” by an ex-girlfriend and her stank behavior.

He tells “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that the woman, a celebrity, was more interested in hitting up red carpet events than looking after him when he was under the weather.

“This is what you learn about Hollywood – sometimes the person that you are dating is really not all that into you; it’s maybe, like, a step-up to whatever’s next. I found this out in a weird way,” he said.

“I was supposed to go to a premiere and I got, like, a 104 temperature, so I’m laying in the bed and the girl I was dating at the time goes, ‘What are we doing… It’s the premiere!’ I said, ‘I’m sick, can’t you see I’m sick?’

“(She says), ‘Well I’ve got this dress… and people are there, they’re gonna be on the red carpet for me…’ So I get up, go to the closet, grab the dress and I say, ‘Go ahead, but don’t come back!’

“That was something that tripped me out… I understood and then I seen her float on to somebody else in Hollywood… The song brilliantly tells that story.”

*ABC wants more of John Ridley.

While his anthology series “American Crime” has not been a breakout hit, the network likes his work and has signed up the Oscar winning writer of “12 Years a Slave” to team with Marvel on a new TV series, reports Entertainment Weekly.

The deal supposedly has Ridley reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property for ABC—but all sides are staying quiet on exactly which title Ridley is adapting.

This comes on the heels of EW breaking the news that Marvel and ABC are also developing a spinoff series to “The Avengers” tie-in “Agents of SHIELD.”

Ridley is an executive producer of ABC’s acclaimed midseason drama “American Crime” and also a writer/producer on the 2016 big-screen update of “Ben Hur.”
