Police: Rap Producer Injured In Ariz. Hotel Fight

Posted: Updated:
A beating has left rap producer Marion 'Suge' Knight hospitalized in Arizona. Police say it happened early Monday at a private party in a hotel in Scottsdale.

Two men were arrested including a man who said he is the business manager for hip-hop singer Akon.

Scottsdale police spokesman Sgt. Mark Clark says Akon was not present when the scuffle occurred.

Clark says officers arrived and saw a man identified as 38-year-old Robert Carnes Jr. of Bethlehem, Pa., twice punch Knight in the face.

Police booked Carnes and a man identified as 33-year-old Thomas Leon Anderson Jr., of California, on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct.
