Suge Knight is now a wanted man ... because a judge just issued a bench warrant for his arrest ... and it's pretty ironic, because he was supposed to show up on another warrant that was issued for not showing up.
TMZ broke the story ... Suge was pulled over in September for driving without license plates. When he was pulled over cops realized he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in another case. Suge was then arrested, hauled off to jail, released and ordered to appear in court today.
Suge was a no-show, so the judge ordered the deputies to haul his butt into court and set bail at $26K.
And history repeats itself.
