Suge Knight K.O. Kid -- Violently Choked Out

7/26/2010 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Greg the Barber -- the guy who famously knocked out Suge Knight -- was choked out in a violent nightclub altercation ... when a bouncer ran up from behind him and put him in a sleeper hold.

** Warning: This footage contains explicit language and violence **


The footage -- first posted on Friday by HoodNews.org -- shows Greg conducting an interview for some sort of Internet show in front of Wonderland in Hollywood ... when a bouncer knocks into him from behind.

Clearly upset, Greg aggressively confronts the bouncer -- when ANOTHER bouncer rushes in from behind and puts a death grip around Greg's neck ... until he passes out.

When Greg wakes up, he tries to find the man who attacked him ... even throwing punches at one point.

They're all a bunch of losers and NONE of them know how to fight. Wimps! They all get what they deserve sooner or later. Good riddance.

Wow that was use of unnecessary force. The reason the guy passed out was that he couldn't breathe. Hope these "bouncers" get what's coming to them either in court or on the street.
Give some people some power and they turn into idiots.
And what where they "protecting" anyway? Geesh.

This is the dumbest **** I've ever seen. The first bouncer was pushing up on him so he pushed him off of him then out of nowhere bouncer 2 chokes him out. I would sue the **** out of the bouncer #2.

Do bouncers have to protect the street? This was not inside their club. Once on the street, this is should be assault and the bouncers charged and the club should held liable for illegal actions of it's employees.

What a bunch of ***** ass bouncers. That guy was attacked twice from behind, and he originally was pushed from behind too.

The last time I had an altercation with a bouncer, you guessed it, he attacked me from behind, he was a bit of a wannabe tough guy who tried to put me down but couldn't. Lucky for both of us another bouncer jumped in to calm the situation. I always meant to toss a rock through that places window.....

The original bouncer didn't try and defuse the situation...he got right in the guys face and even pushed him, although the "victim" was trying to act tough himself. So typical.

What a bunch of losers.

Bouncers are like little girls. I am actually insulting little girls when I compare these idiots....They only act up when the buddies are around. When they are alone, they try to be nice and try to be your friends. Sadly, they are nothing. Get paid a little and pretend they are high rollers...F#$#N Sad..

Wow! Wasn't that nice of the bouncer to make sure Greg's head was laid done gently? How nice of him! I would think putting someone in a sleeper hold could be a really dangerous thing. I hope this video helps the police so Greg can file charges. There were way too many bouncers there for one to act so violently especially when Greg wasn't throwing punches...yet.

The guy who put the chokehold on him should go to jail. There was no good reason to physically restrain him; they could have told him to shut up, to calm down, whatever, but that level of physicality was completely uncalled for.

As others have said here, he could have died if the chokehold had been applied incorrectly.
