A jury has cleared rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight of battery in a 2001 attack - but he still has to hand over cash to his accuser.

DWAYNE H BAUDY claimed he was assaulted outside a recording studio by Death Row Records boss Knight and his bodyguards on 6 November 2001.

The jury found Knight's bodyguard, REGINALD WRIGHT JR, negligent and responsible for the damages. And while Knight was cleared, a jury still awarded $162,000 (GBP90,000) in damages to the accuser.
