Update 5 Feb 2015 9:00 am ET:
Suge has been released from the hospital and he’s back in jail. Doctors say his condition had stabilized to the point where he can be taken care of at the prison infirmary.
Suge Knight did not just suffer a panic attack when he was rushed to the hospital after Tuesday’s hearing … he almost died from a blood clot.
According to TMZ, Knight has been moved to Long Beach Memorial hospital, where doctors determined that another blood clot has formed and had apparently crept into his lungs – a usually fatal situation.. The first blood clot happened in Las Vegas three months ago, after he was jailed for allegedly stealing a paparazzo’s camera.
According to the site, blood clots began forming in Knight’s system after he was shot six times at the 1OAK night club last summer. After he was operated upon, doctors placed him on anticoagulants … but he apparently missed a dose or the panic attack triggered the clot formation.
Suge – who is facing murder charges – is currently cuffed to the hospital bed and placed on anticoagulants.
