Suge Knight, The Death Row Records co-founder has been taken to hospital for the third time in two months. Following a scheduled court hearing on March 2, where he spoke for the first time since he was arrested in January for his involvement in the deadly hit-and-run accident, which resulted in the death of Terry Carter, Knight was taken into a jail infirmary. Knight has been in prison since the hit-and-run incident took place outside of Tam’s Burgers in Los Angeles. He is also facing charges relating to a different incident where he and Katt Williams, according to police reports, stole a camera from a celebrity photographer.
Knight announced that he fired David Kenner, his lawyer who had represented him since Knight parted ways with the attorney that initially represented him, James E. Blatt. Knight asked James Brandlin, L.A. County Superior Court Judge if he could talk and he then described his current health conditions, saying that he’d lost 30 pounds since being incarcerated and couldn’t see or really comprehend what was going on. Judge Brandlin ruled that Knight’s future hearings would be held in downtown LA and Knight was then rushed to the infirmary.
Knight was taken to the hospital in February after suffering chest pains while in the lockup area near the courtroom. Mere weeks later, he fell ill before he was scheduled to appear in court and before he could be transferred.
