LAS VEGAS (AP) — A lawyer for rap music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight is working on a plea deal with a Las Vegas city prosecutor on unpaid tickets that led to Knight's arrest last month on traffic warrants.
The 46-year-old former Death Row Records executive didn't appear Monday in Las Vegas Municipal Court while attorney Richard Schonfeld got a new court date March 19.
Knight was arrested Feb. 8 in Las Vegas on warrants issued after police say he failed to appear on tickets issued in November 2008.
Knight also was accused of possessing less than one ounce of a controlled substance on a report that marijuana was found in the car.
No charge was immediately filed in the marijuana case. That's scheduled for June in another court.
