Suge Knight collapsed in court and was rushed to the hospital shortly after the judge set his bail at $25,000.
On Friday, a hearing was held to determine if the rap mogul – who is in bad health and has been constantly complaining of bad prison conditions – could be set free on bail. The prosecutor agreed that he could, but insisted the bail be set at $25 million because of his rich criminal record and especially his history of violence, guns and intimidating witnesses.
His defense attorney begged to differ, accusing the prosecutor of treating Suge like Empire character Lucious Lyon, who in the series’ finale was accused of murdering Bunkie. ‘It’s like she [the prosecutor] watches “Empire” and comes in and says, “He was an unrepentant and shameless criminal. Prosecute him”,’ said Fletcher.
The judge sided with the prosecutor, however, and set the bail at $25 million. Shortly after, Suge collapsed … and had to be rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
Suge Knight is standing trial for the death of his friend Terry Carter, who he ran over with his truck back in January. He is charged with murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run.
