Suge Knight Hospitalized in L.A.
Knight was reportedly moved from the L.A. County jail on Tuesday, around 11 a.m. and was admitted to a hospital in L.A. As of now, it's unsure why the Death Row founder was rushed to the hospital.
However, this is not the first time that Knight— who is currently awaiting trial for murder— has been hospitalized. Last March, he spent time in the hospital because he was suffering from blood clots, which has been a continued health issue for him. At that time Knight was admitted to USC Medical Center.
Knight has been locked up now for nearly three years on murder and attempted murder charges. His murder charge stems from a January 2015 incident at Tam’s Burgers, when he ran over two men with his truck, killing Compton businessman Terry Carter, 55. Prosecutors say that Knight intentionally hit the gas to run over Cle “Bone” Sloan, who was working on the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton. Sloan survived.
Most recently, it was reported that Knight has lost his 15th defense attorney, citing a conflict of interest.
