City officials asked a judge to ban members of the Mob Piru street gang from being able to congregate in a neighborhood of Compton – and asked that the order include Marion “Suge” Knight.
The co-founder of Death Row Records was one of 200 people the officials said were members of Mob Piru. The injunction would ban them from congregating, carrying guns, drinking alcohol in public or staying out past 10 p.m.
Knight called the injunction a “publicity stunt.”
“This is crazy,” Knight told the Los Angeles Times in Thursday’s editions. “I’m a 42-year-old businessman, not a gang member. I don’t even live in Compton anymore.”
