The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police tell E! News that Knight (full name Marion Knight Jr.) was pulled over at approximately 5:30 p.m. yesterday when he made an unsafe lane change. Officers ran his name through the system and discovered that he had several bench warrants out for his arrest.

A search of his Bentley subsequently turned up a small amount of cannabis and he was taken into custody, cited at a nearby station for possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), then released.

The problems for Suge run deeper than a nominal pot bust. The rap mogul could end up getting jail time since, according to TMZ, he's been on three years' unsupervised probation since December 2010 for driving on a suspended license.

This after Knight has already endured multiple prison stints for probation violations, assault, drug possession and other crimes dating back to 1987. The former hip-hop titan lost formal control of Death Row in 2006 and ended up filing for bankruptcy soon after.
