This Suge Knight hit and run case is already dramatic and tragic enough, but one thing is clear—the Death Row founder is going to say or do anything to stay out of jail. The latest claim from Knight’s camp is that he is legally blind in one eye.
Suge’s lawyer tells TMZ, his client is legally blind in his left eye … the result of glaucoma which is a side effect of diabetes.
Attorney Matthew Fletcher says when Suge pulled back and struck Cle “Bone” Sloan the first time … he didn’t have a clear view of his left side, which may have prevented him from turning left, which would have allowed him to escape down the street.
In addition, Terry Carter was on Suge’s left side when he re-entered the parking lot, so Suge may not have clearly seen him before striking him with the truck.
Suge also claims Carter screamed something to the effect of, “Should I shoot him?” Fletcher says because of Suge’s vision problem, he couldn’t see that Carter was not brandishing a weapon.
If Suge is legally blind, why was he even behind the wheel of a car in the first place.
