Suge Knight was taken to a hospital from a West Los Angeles courthouse after complaining of stomach pain. He was supposed to attend an arraignment unrelated to the murder case he pleaded not guilty to. Knight was supposed to submit a plea of guilty or not guilty to charges that he threatened a woman he stole a camera from back in September. Comedian Katt Williams is also named as a plaintiff in the robbery charge.
Knight and Williams allegedly stole Leslie Redden’s camera in a Beverly Hills back alley. The robbery resulted in Redden being injured. “The Oscar goes to: Mr. Marion Knight,” Redden said while sporting a brace on her wrist. “Every time he has to face what he's done, he runs, he's sick, he's got an excuse.”

This is the second time that Knight was taken to the hospital on the day he was supposed to appear in court. In a hearing earlier this month for the murder and hit and run charges against him, the rap mogul complained of chest pains and was also taken to a hospital.
The murder and hit and run charges were filed against Knight after he was involved in an incident in a Compton parking lot in January which resulted in the death of his friend Terry Carter. Knight pleaded not guilty, saying that he was simply fleeing a beating on his vehicle when he accidentally hit Carter and injured another man.
Knight’s attorney, David Kenner, told TMZ that the reason for Knight’s trips to the hospital were the injuries he suffered after he was shot in the 10ak Club in August of last year, with the stomach pain being the result of bleeding in his stomach. A judge has refused to allow Knight’s physician to evaluate him inside the LA County Jail where he is currently being held for the murder case.
This latest medical emergency led to the second delay in Knight’s robbery case.
