Yesterday saw over 200 people gather for the funeral of the 20 year old son of Dr, Dre. Andre Young Junior who was found unconscious last weekend by his mother after a night out. He was announced dead on arrival at hospital. The initial autopsy which took place this week was however inconclusive as to the cause of death, encouraging further toxicology and tests to be done.
Suge Knight was arrested in Vegas this morning for allegedly beating up his girlfriend after she tried to escape from the vehicle they were driving in. The LAPD said when they arrived on the scene they saw Knight kicking his girlfriend of three years in the head while holding a knife.The former Death Row front man was charged with domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon and drug possession and is currently still being held at the Clark County Detention Center. It was while arriving at the DC that Knight was found to be carrying ecstasy.
LAPD, yeah we all know what those guys are like, stopped a car being driven by one of Puffy’s boys this past weekend while the Didster and his entourage were cruising down Sunset. The car which wasnt tagged correctly alerted the watchful eyes of the LAPD and the stopped the vehicle to check it out. Upon seeing their boy being stopped and questioned Puffy and a couple of others from the second vehicle walked over to see just what the issue was, (you know how New Yorkers be on their guard when dealing with the LAPD) for the cops to pull a gun on Diddy and those with him. Allegedly the cops didnt realize that Diddy was part of the group who had approached nonthreatening and with extreme caution, but once they realized it was in fact Sean Combs it was high fives all round, autographs were signed and everyone went on their way peacefully.
