Embattled rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight has been left furious after his car was pulled over by cops who mistook him for another man.

The incident occurred in Los Angeles on Friday (29Nov13), and was later confirmed to be a case of mistaken identity.

According to editors at Tmz.com, officers stopped the star's vehicle after they received a report of an assault in which the description of the suspect matched that of Knight.

He was taken to a local police station, but was later released after it was confirmed that he wasn't the man they had been searching for.
