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.

Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’
Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.
In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.
Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”
While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark.
She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”
“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”
The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”
Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”
Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
