Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight was jailed in Las Vegas yesterday on three outstanding traffic warrants and suspicion of marijuana possession. Knight was busted after being pulled over for a driving infraction near the Vegas Strip.

Knight's warrants included one for driving on a suspended out-of-state license. When cops searched his vehicle, they discovered less than an ounce of marijuana, a misdemeanor offense. He was released on $2,600 bail after a few hours behind bars.

These charges pale in comparison to Knight's previous legal issues, which include drug and assault charges after being accused of punching and pulling a knife on his girlfriend outside of a Las Vegas strip club in 2008 and suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for another incident in Los Angeles in 2010.
