DA rejects assault charges against Suge Knight

Los Angeles prosecutors have declined to file assault charges against Marion "Suge" Knight but are asking police to investigate further. Los Angeles police had sought assault with a deadly weapon charges against the former rap mogul after Knight's May 20 arrest for allegedly pointing a gun at a man. Knight was released hours after his arrest after posting $65,000 bail.

Los Angeles County District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison say prosecutors rejected filing the charges Thursday.

An after-hours message left for Knight's attorney, Marc Brumer, was not immediately returned. Brumer had denied a confrontation ever happened or that Knight was carrying a gun.

The 45-year-old is the co-founder of Death Row Records, which produced albums by rappers such as Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.
