In so many ways I feel sorry for the great producer of Death Row Records Suge Knight, but in so many ways I don't. The Death Row Records co-founder is accused of running down two men in Compton on Jan. 29 and killing one of them. He has pleaded not guilty and claims that he was acting out of self defense after he was attacked following a dispute at a film shoot.
Marion Suge Knight collapsed in court Friday after a judge set his bail at $25 million. The rap mogul, who has been charged with murder in a fatal hit-and-run, was taken by ambulance to a jail hospital. After the bail hearing, Knight collapsed and the judge closed the courtroom. His attorney told reporters that he noticed Knight was sweating and that his eyelid appeared to flutter before he fell and hit his head on a chair.
“He was dripping sweat, like someone poured a bucket of water on him,” attorney Matt Fletcher said. “He wiped the sweat off his head and said, ‘I haven’t had my medication.’” He is currently being evaluated, but details regarding his condition are unknown.
