Watch as Suge Knight slugs pot dispensary employee

A surveillance video seems to back up an employee at a Los Angeles medical marijuana dispensary known as Medstar Collective. He said that Suge Knight, founder and CEO of Black Kapital Records and co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records, threatened to kill him, and later slugged him. TMZ posted the video (embedded) on Wednesday.

The incident took place on Sunday. Sources close to Knight said this is all a misunderstanding over his payday. Apparently Knight believed he was going to be paid in both cash and pot for a promotional appearance.

Meanwhile, law enforcement sources say that Knight told an employee, "I will kill you."

The surveillance video -- which is already in the hands of the police -- shows video from different cameras. The first camera's view shows Knight calm at first, then arguing angrily with someone. Later, a view from an outside camera shows Knight hitting a man in the jaw without warning ... then leaving angrily after the sucker punch.

Reportedly, Knight is being investigated for making felony criminal threats; it's unclear if there are any additional charges being considering for the actual battery of the employee.
