*Marion “Suge” Knight was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning before his scheduled court hearing after suffering from what his attorney called a “stomach-related medical issue.”
Suge was supposed to appear in court this morning on the robbery charge stemming from his run-in with a celebrity photographer. (Los Angeles County prosecutors say Knight and comedian Katt Williams stole the photographer’s camera on Sept. 5.)
But when Knight arrived to the courthouse, he was taken away by ambulance, his attorney David Kenner said.
Kenner said he was later informed by hospital personnel that Knight had suffered a “stomach-related medical issue.”
Knight’s attorney insists the latest hospital emergency “is not a panic attack” and is likely related to injuries stemming from being shot six times.
The co-founder of Death Row Records had complained of pain during a meeting with attorneys Wednesday, Kenner said. Kenner says he hopes his client recovers because they have a lot of work ahead of them.
Earlier this month, Knight was taken to a hospital after a hearing in which he was charged with running over two men with his car at Tam’s Burgers in Compton. Terry Carter, 55, died, and Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51 was injured in the incident.
Knight was treated for an unspecified medical emergency and later released into police custody. At the time, Kenner told reporters that Knight’s health problems were serious.
“Blood clots are always potentially life threatening,” he said. “I understand that he passed out and was having some serious bleeding issues.”
