TMZ is reporting that police have now formally charged Suge Knight and his bail is currently set at $2 million. Suge reportedly made the trip to the set to make amends with Dr. Dre, but he ended up getting into a shoving matches with Dre's security and left. Once Suge left the set, he was then contacted by Carter to meet up at a separate location, where Suge says he got jumped, according to TMZ. The fatal hit-and-run, which resulted in Carter's death, then took place at the second location, according to the report.

Suge Knight arrived on a film set in Compton earlier and reportedly ran over a bystander after an altercation with a crew member. Witnesses tell TMZ that Game, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and more were on set—possibly filming a commercial, as Instagram photos would suggest—when Knight rolled up and got into a fight with a crew member while he was behind the wheel.

Knight reportedly put his car in reverse and ran over a bystander on the scene. Witnesses claim the bystander was killed but cops have yet to confirm a suspect or death yet. We'll update with more details as they become available.
