Marion “Suge” Knight, the former head of Death Row Records, was arrested early Wednesday after police officers pulled him over on a traffic violation. TMZ reported that officers spotted Knight straddling two lanes in a truck without license plates.

Though the 48-year-old passed a sobriety test, officers brought him in on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant related to his failure to show up to court in February.

Authorities released the rap mogul after he posted $20,000 bail.

Knight, who has a long history of legal troubles involving probation violations and drug use, had been expected in court for two incidents of driving with a suspended license.
