Suge Knight -- No Gun Found in SUV Search

5/22/2010 4:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned cops did not find a gun during a preliminary sweep of Suge Knight's SUV -- right after he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon earlier this week.

As we previously reported, cops tracked down and arrested Suge after someone told officers that the former rap mogul had pointed a gun at another vehicle at an L.A. gas station.

But sources tell us the gas station surveillance footage doesn't show Knight brandishing any sort of weapon. We're told the video -- which is now in the hands of investigators -- does show a group of people who seem to recognize Suge and approach his SUV. Suge never gets out of the car and ultimately drives away.

However, Suge's rep acknowledges that Knight was involved in a confrontation that occurred when, "some guy walked up to the window and started talking to the women in the car disrespectfully."

The rep adds, "This made Suge mad so he left the gas station.  He never got out of the car and he never had any gun on him.”

We're told cops are not finished with Suge's car yet -- they've impounded the vehicle and plan on conducting a more thorough inspection.

"talking to the women in the car disrespectfully" -- SERIOUSLY, that's what set him off? Isn't that EXACTLY how he made his money? That's the definition of rap. These animals don't need to have guns.

He probably swallowed the gun - did they x-ray his stomach?

Hmmm... seems more like he was arrested because of who he is rather than because of what he did.

He needs to carry a gun because he has gotten so many ass whoopings in the past couple of years. The guy is a total ***** and a wimp.

Suge needs his own cartoon for kids, kind of like Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. I mean he would be such a good influence for kids.

First off... to all of the people who choose to comment on Suge, in cluding the TMZ staff, would be scared out of their empty minds if they were confronted by this man...if Suge were to get ahold of any of you losers, you would not wake up for weeks....people are always tough from their side of the computer.... be a man and express your thoughts to his face...oh yea.. thats right.... any where Suge is, they will not even let your nerdy ass' in the building. get a life and get off his nuts...
