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."

Officers deployed Tasers to quell the fight that erupted. Officers arrested CARNES Jr. and ANDERSON for assault and disorderly conduct. The victim was transported to SHC-Osborn hospital where he was treated for facial injuries. CARNES Jr. reported to officers that he is employed as the business manager for singer "Akon".

Both suspects were booked into Scottsdale City jail and are being held in custody.

People like Suge should be given lethal injection. I'd gladly shoot him 50 times and cut his heart out with a knife if he got in my face. People like that don't deserve to live. Another reason I vote REPUBLICAN and always carry a magnum. Idiots are plenty and Im all about killing fools.

Suge Knight was stong be for, well was not messed with when Tupac was around. After he Tupac died Suge and death row has had alot of problems. Tupac ran death row well it would not had become what it was or is if it was not for Tupac. Yea Suge has dine some messed up stuff but people only here of bad things and well never really know the real deal. Maybe he does deserve what he gets but it for what he has done years back around with Tupac that hes paying for. With Ice well maybe he should not had got in with death row even thougth he was main back then if he would had never had nothing to do with them maybe he would had not been made to sign. The brige stuff is funny. Every body remember you don't know every thing and really don't know the truth. I mean I see people get they ass kicked all most every day and I don't see them here. Really has nothing to do with you so you should stay out of it
