suge knight (assuming the position)

With guns drawn, LAPD make Suge Knight assume the position

*Poor, poor Suge Knight.

The former big baller who headed Death Row Records back in the day keeps getting popped by the po-po.

Knight’s latest bust came Friday afternoon courtesy of the LAPD. As you can see in the pic above, officers didn’t hesitate to make him assume the position.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, police had received a report of an assault, and the suspect matched Suge’s description — so when officers spotted Suge in his vehicle … they pulled him over, and jumped out of their patrol car with their guns drawn.

We’re told Suge agreed to go to the police station, where he explained he wasn’t the man they were looking for … in fact, police now believe the initial report of an assault was bogus.

Suge was eventually released … but sources close to the hip hop mogul tell TMZ, he is extremely pissed about the misunderstanding — and is considering filing a lawsuit.

Knight was arrested by Los Angeles police back in September after being pulled over for a traffic violation, according to the LA Times.

He was pulled over near Beverly Hills, said LAPD officer Drake Madison who also declined to specify what the alleged traffic violation was.
