Rap mogul gets extension in unpaid traffic ticket case

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 said 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 is scheduled for June in another court.
