Suge Knight Beat Down -- Again!!!

2/16/2009 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Suge Knight attacker, Suge KnightFor the second time in 9 months, Suge Knight got his face punched in -- and the alleged ass-beater claims to be Akon's business manager.

It all went down in a private party at the W Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ where Suge was attending a private party for NBA All-Star weekend. Cops say they were called to the scene by hotel security who warned about a brewing fight between two groups in the VIP area.

According to the Scottsdale PD website, when cops arrived, they saw a man punch the victim -- aka Suge -- two times in the head." Officers had to break out the tasers to "quell the fight."

The suspect, Robert Carnes, Jr., was charged with one count of felony aggravated assault -- they ruled it a felony "due to the severity of the victim's injuries." Another man was also arrested and charged with one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

Launch PhotosAccording to the Scottsdale PD, "Carnes reported to officers that he is employed as the business manager for singer 'Akon.'"

Suge was transported to a local hospital and treated for facial injuries.

UPDATE:
Akon's people tell us, "Akon had already left the party and was in his hotel room at The W when the incident occurred."

UPDATE: Akon's publicist released the following statement about Robert Carnes Jr., the guy accused of beating Suge's ass: "He is not Akon's business manager, David Bolno is. He is with Akon's camp."

Mike Tyson used to be the baddest man on the planet...at one time. Then his fights became a joke, too.

Funny how these guys fail to realize that you can't beat time.

So Suge Knight got knocked out again..haha In the 90's he was robbing Vanilla Ice for millions of dollars, and had a Torture chamber at the Death Row Record offices, but now a day no one is scared of a 40 + year old gangbanger..lol

Suge has been such a bad seed for so long... finally his days of shakedowns are coming to an end. He should be in jail himself. He's hurt so many people, it's so overdue that he finally gets what's coming to him.
