Suge Knight Falling Apart in Jail? Back in Infirmary 3rd Time

By    |   Tuesday, 03 Mar 2015 06:18 AM

Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight told a judge in Los Angeles on Monday that he couldn't see and he couldn't understand court proceedings against him before he was taken to a jail medical facility for the third time.

The 49-year-old co-founder of influential label Death Row Records, who has pleaded not guilty to murder charges stemming from a fatal hit-and-run, was still in the infirmary late in the afternoon, said a sheriff’s official.

The incident marked the third time since Knight’s arraignment in early February that he has requested medical treatment when expected to appear at court, reported Reuters.

Knight also told the judge he had fired his attorneys. David Kenner said he could not comment on whether he would continue representing the music executive, but added that Knight’s health was "not good."

During the hearing, Knight stood before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin wearing an orange jumpsuit and eyeglasses.

He told the judge he had lost 30 pounds since the his last court appearance.

"I can't really see. I can't really comprehend what's going on," Knight said.

Brandlin transferred Knight’s hit-and-run case, along with a pending robbery case, to the downtown Los Angeles courthouse from two distant courthouses.c Knight missed another appearance scheduled for later on Monday in a different courtroom.

His attorney had previously said that Knight, who was shot six times in a shooting in August, had suffered breathing issues and blood clots.

Prosecutors say Knight ran over two men with his pickup truck in a parking lot, killing one of them, in an altercation outside a fast food restaurant in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton on Jan. 29.

The murder charge makes Knight a candidate for the three-strike-rule that would automatically hand him a sentence of 25 years to life. He is being held without bail.

Knight also faces robbery and criminal threats charges stemming from an incident on Sept. 5 involving a celebrity photographer in Beverly Hills.
