Two Los Angeles attorneys who represented former rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight
were arrested on warrants alleging they were accessories after the fact to a
felony, authorities said.

The attorneys, Matthew Fletcher and Thaddeus Culpepper, were arrested Thursday
by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies, sheriff’s department spokeswoman
Nicole Nishida told The Associated Press. The warrants allege they were
accessories after the fact to a crime, she said, without providing any
additional details.

Fletcher, 53, was arrested around 2 p.m. and was being booked at the county
jail, officials said. Jail records showed he was being held on $1 million bail.
No information was listed about Culpepper.

In a court filing in August, prosecutors accused Fletcher and Knight of witness
tampering in the rap mogul’s pending murder case. Transcripts of recorded
conversations suggested the two had discussed fabricating testimony and Knight
had tried to pay off potential witnesses with his lawyer’s help, the filing
said.

The alleged talks of bribery came in a series of recorded calls in 2015 between
Knight, who was in jail and Fletcher, along with Knight’s fiancee and his
business partner.

Fletcher is one of several lawyers who has represented Knight, the Death Row
Records co-founder, since he was charged with murder and attempted murder after
he ran over two men outside a Compton burger stand in January 2015, killing one
of them. Knight has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go on trial later
this year.
