The Clark County D.A.’s office wants to bring charges against Death Row Records founder, Marion "Suge" Knight, for the alleged August beating of his girlfriend. On Tuesday, a criminal complaint charged Knight with two counts of felony drug possession and one count of misdemeanor battery.

Police say they arrested Knight, 43, after officers saw him beating a woman while holding a knife near the Las Vegas Strip. The woman wasn’t stabbed, but was treated at a hospital for injuries. Authorities say Knight had possession of Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested.

A court spokesperson said the complain has been received by the court and a summons and arraignment date should follow.

”Whenever we have the opportunity to appear before the court and enter a not guilty plea, that’s what we’ll do,” said Richard Schonfeld, one of Knight’s attorneys in Las Vegas. ”We’re going to vigorously defend him against these charges.”
