Really? Suge Knight’s Defense “I Have A Blind Spot In My Left Eye”

Suge Knight’s defense in his murder case will involve a glock … glaucoma.

Check out what TMZ reports:

Suge’s lawyer tells TMZ, his client is legally blind in his left eye … the result of glaucoma which is a side effect of diabetes.

Attorney Matthew Fletcher says when Suge pulled back and struck Cle “Bone” Sloan the first time … he didn’t have a clear view of his left side, which may have prevented him from turning left, which would have allowed him to escape down the street.

In addition, Terry Carter was on Suge’s left side when he re-entered the parking lot, so Suge may not have clearly seen him before striking him with the truck.

Suge also claims Carter screamed something to the effect of, “Should I shoot him?” Fletcher says because of Suge’s vision problem, he couldn’t see that Carter was not brandishing a weapon.

Check out the gruesome footage from Suge’s alleged hit and run.

Suge Knight Admitted to Hospital Again After Claiming He’s Going Blind

This time, Knight claims he’s going blind from the lack of medical attention. Before the medical trip, he spoke on his own behalf after firing his lawyers and claimed he was being mistreated in jail. Knight then told the court that his doctor informed him his eyesight was declining, prompting the hospital admittance.

Knight is in jail after hitting two people with a car on a Los Angeles movie set, killing one and leaving the other injured.

Suge got more game than The Price is right!

Suge Knight — I Was Ambushed By Gunmen

Suge Knight now has a video of the entire parking lot altercation that resulted in a man’s death — and sources connected to Suge tell us it shows someone holding a gun and pointing it ominously at Suge, and that person is Cle “Bone” Sloan.

TMZ Reports:

Our Suge sources believe the video clearly shows the fight leading up to the fatal hit and run was an ambush. We’re told you see a gun in Bone’s hand … and it looks like another person is also there holding a gun.

In the video … after Suge runs over Bone and Terry Carter, someone walks over and takes the gun from Bone’s hand and walks away with it.

And get this — our Suge sources say based on the video and information … they now believe Carter was part of the ambush. You’ll recall, Carter drove with Suge to the meeting and set it up.

We’re told the video was shot by surveillance cameras in the Tam’s hamburger joint parking lot. We’d been told by the owner of Tam’s that the cameras were inoperative, but apparently that was not the case.

What’s strange is … law enforcement sources tell us cops believe the video will help their case against Suge. Obviously, Suge’s side sees it much differently.

This case should be taken to The Peoples Court!

Suge Knight rushed to hospital after pleading ‘not guilty’

Suge Knight was rushed to the hospital after appearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court Tuesday.

“He was transported to a local hospital at 9:45 this morning for a medical emergency,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Nicole Nishida confirms to USA TODAY. According to the AP, Knight complained of chest pains.

Meanwhile, shots were heard several blocks away from the courthouse, though a call reporting sounds of gunfire was not received until 10:12 a.m. “It had nothing to do with the courthouse,” said Nishida.

Knight pleaded not guilty earlier Tuesday to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges during a brief court appearance.

If convicted Knight faces up to life in state prison.

Authorities allege Knight killed one man, Terry Carter, 55, and injured another, Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51, with his pickup truck on Thursday near a film set in Compton, and then fled the scene.

The collision followed a fight involving Knight and at least one of the men he struck in a restaurant parking lot, the district attorney’s statement said.

Knight, who has a history of convictions and run-ins with the law, was out on bail in a separate robbery case at the time.

In November, he pleaded not guilty to a robbery charge filed after a celebrity photographer accused him of stealing her camera in Beverly Hills. Because of prior convictions, he could face up to 30 years in prison in that case.

The new complaint against him includes use of a deadly weapon and causing great bodily injury allegations.

Also, because Knight has prior convictions, this case would be a third strike against him if he is convicted, automatically increasing the sentence under California law.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate the case, reviewing video of the crime scene.

Knight’s lawyer, James Blatt, has said Knight accidentally ran over the men as he tried to escape a vicious attack through the truck window. He says Knight was attacked by four people, including Sloan, and that Knight hit the gas and fled in fear.

Earlier, Knight’s initial bail of $2 million was revoked after a court commissioner agreed with detectives who said the 49-year-old founder of Death Row Records was a potential flight risk and could intimidate witnesses, according Nishida.

At 6-foot-4-inches and weighing 325 pounds, Knight is an imposing figure. He was at the center of one of the most notorious rap conflicts of the 1990s, pitting Tupac Shakuragainst Biggie Smalls in an East Coast-West Coast rivalry.

Knight was sent to prison for nearly five years for badly beating a rival with Shakur at aLas Vegas hotel, just hours before Shakur was fatally shot while riding in Knight’s car just east of the Strip.

This latest incident comes less than six months after Knight was shot six times at a West Hollywood nightclub in August — the second shooting he has survived. No arrests have been made in that case.

All of a sudden Suge wants to play sick?? Hmmmmm… Seem’s alittle suspect to us! We hope he’s OK!
