Greg the Barber, best known as the man who KO’d Suge Knight two years ago, was put to sleep himself last week when bouncer choked him out in front of a nightclub in Hollywood.
In video footage, posted at HoodNews, Greg is seen conducting an interview on the sidewalk in front of Wonderland nightclub in Hollywood … when a bouncer shoves him from behind.
Upset, Greg confronts the bouncer who engages him in an argument. Outta nowhere, a bouncer rushed Greg from behind, applying a chokehold around his neck … until he’s out cold on the sidewalk.
After about a minute, Greg comes to, and tries to find the club security … and even throws a few punches his way.
According to TMZ, the LAPD has seen the footage and has launched an investigation. The weird thing is Greg was the one who was arrested on the scene early Friday morning (July 23).
The report says that police were called to the scene after the incident and when they got there, they realized Greg had some outstanding warrants from previous incidents … and arrested him near the club.
The caller told cops that Greg had been making violent threats toward club employees, but none were taken into custody.
Investigators says until they saw the video, they were unable to identify the other parties involved.
Update: TMZ sources directly involved with the incident, told the site the bouncer who is seen in the video choking out Greg was fired strictly because of the way he handled himself on Friday morning.
Greg is reportedly still in custody.
