    Straight Outta Compton’s Dr. Dre and Ice Cube Want No Involvement in Suge Knight lawsuit

    As their film Straight Outta Compton continues to top the box office nationwide, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are actively trying to distance themselves from the incident involving Suge Knight that occurred back in January, leaving one man dead.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dre and Cube have filed court papers demanding they be released from a lawsuit over the incident which occurred in Compton during the movie’s filming. Knight, who has been arrested, ran over one of the film’s technical advisers, Cle “Bone” Sloan, and Compton businessman, Terry Carter, with his pickup truck. Carter passed away following the incident.
