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 fell to the floor and the judge closed the courtroom, reports NBC LA. His attorney told reporters that he noticed Knight was sweating and that his eyelid appeared to flutter before he collapsed and hit his head on a chair.
“He was dripping sweat, like someone poured a bucket of water on him,” said his attorney Matt Fletcher. “He wiped the sweat off his head and said, ‘I haven’t had my medication.'”
He is currently being evaluated and details regarding his condition are unknown.
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.
