Sloan has denied he and Carter were carrying arms. His trial was scheduled to begin October 1.

The incident, which was captured on surveillance video, took place following an argument over Straight Outta Compton, a biopic about the pioneering rap group NWA.

Although Knight reportedly counted Carter as a friend, prosecutors contended the collision was deliberate.

Suge Jacob Knight tells TMZ. despite his father striking a 28-year plea deal in his murder case Thursday, he's staying positive about the situation.

Knight, Carter and Sloan were longtime associates and Knight said the incident was an accident after a dispute got out of control.

By entering his plea, Knight also will resolve two other pending criminal cases.

Knight would frequently, against the advice of Coen and his attorneys, speak extensively during hearings, complaining about jail conditions, his attorneys and his health issues. With this plea, Knight will not be eligible for release until he is 81 years old.

Knight has always been known as much for his run-ins with the law and brushes with violence and as for his career as a rap music executive who promoted the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur in the 1990s. He has prior felony convictions for armed robbery and assault with a gun. The 28 years sentence is extraordinarily stiff for a guilty plea for manslaughter.
