‘I’m no snitch’: Witness at Marion ‘Suge’ Knight murder case hearing

suge and bone court testifyThe red Ford F-150 Raptor pickup barreled into Cle “Bone” Sloan, shattering his ankles, tearing ligaments in his knees and knocking him unconscious.

It took 17 stitches to close a gash in his head. For months, he needed to use a walker. When he moves his neck now, he feels a piece of chipped bone moving around.

On Monday, about two months after telling detectives that it was rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight who ran him over, Sloan limped to the witness stand in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom and testified that he couldn’t say whether the Death Row Records co-founder was behind the wheel.

Sloan, a former gang member turned actor and filmmaker, said he couldn’t recall much of the Jan. 29 incident outside Tam’s Burgers in Compton, where security camera footage captured the moment when Knight’s truck plowed into Sloan and another man, Terry Carter, who was killed.

Confronted with a transcript of an interview he gave detectives shortly after the incident, Sloan cried during the preliminary hearing.

“I don’t want it to get misconstrued that I told on this man,” he said, pointing at Knight, who sat quietly in court wearing orange jail scrubs. “I’m no snitch…. I will not be used to send Suge Knight to prison.”

He also admitted initiating a fight with Knight at the burger stand immediately before the killing, testifying that he punched Knight in the face.
