Actor Cle “Bone” Sloan is concerned about his health and career following last week’s tragic hit-and-run.
Sloan was working on the set of the forthcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton on January 29 when he was involved in an altercation with rap mogul Suge Knight. The alleged fight ended at Tam’s Burgers in Compton after Suge hit and killed friend, Terry Carter, 55, and severely injured Sloan, 51.
According to Sloan’s lawyer, Michael Shapiro, the actor is now worried he may never work again. “I don’t think he’s worried for his ‘am I gonna die,’ I think he’s worried about ‘what’s going to happen to my life, my career.’ I don’t know if he’s going to walk again,” Shapiro told HipHollywood following Suge Knight’s court hearing on Tuesday. “I think he’s a shining example of what America is all about. A guy who is disadvantaged and does something magnificent. All that dream can come to an end and that’s the tragedy.”
Shapiro continued, “I suspect when all the friends are gone, the attention is gone, he’s a pretty upset, depressed guy. As anyone would be realizing that your career could be over.”
“I think he could be the next Spike Lee or the next Tarantino,” Michael added about his client. “He’s a technical advisor. He was there because he was working on a Universal film called Straight Outta Compton which is a major theatrical motion picture by Universal to sort of bring to the film authenticity because he’s from Compton, he knows the streets.”
According to Shapiro, Sloan suffered a very badly mangled left foot and has been complaining of head injury.
Suge plead not guilty to murder and attempted murder and to two counts of hit-and-run. The 49-year-old Death Row Records co-founder, who was rushed to the hospital following the arraignment due to chest pains, will remain in custody until Monday’s bail hearing. He is currently being held without bail.
