Suge Knight is currently standing trial for his alleged role in a hit-and-run incident earlier this year that left one man dead and badly injured injured another. And it looks like the lone survivor won't be saying anything that could increase the chances of a guilty verdict on Suge's murder and attempted murder charges.
"I don't want it to get misconstrued that I told on this man," Cle “Bone” Sloan said in court on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times. "I'm no snitch. I will not be used to send Suge Knight to prison.
“I can’t say this man ran me over,” he added.
Sloan suffered two fractured ankles, torn ligaments in both knees and a head injury that needed 17 stitches in the January incident, which took place in Los Angeles during a day of filming for the movie "Straight Outta Compton." 55-year-old Terry Carter was killed.
Suge's attorney, Matthew Fletcher, has said his client was being attacked, and the incident happened while he was fleeing in self-defense, according to the Times.
The 51-year-old Sloan seemed to change his story on Monday from what he had previously relayed to detectives. In a transcript from their conversation, he reportedly told detectives that he and Knight started fighting that day, though on the stand, he said he didn't remember saying that. He also said yesterday that he couldn't remember who was driving the truck.
Knight, the co-founder of Death Row Records, is facing up to life in prison if convicted.
He's had what appears to be a rough few months since his initial arrest.
During a court appearance last week, the former music mogul complained about being confined to a wheelchair.
In early March, he said he was blind in one eye and only had 15% vision in the other. Later that month, a judge set a $25 million bail for Knight; he collapsed shortly thereafter. That followed a panic attack that he had during a court date in February.
Prosecutors reportedly gave Sloan immunity for his testimony on Monday.
