UPDATE: Suge Knight was released from the hospital and has returned to jail. He will continue treatment for his blood clots at the prison infirmary, reports TMZ.
Knight, 49, was transported to a hospital Tuesday (Feb. 3) after complaining of chest pains following his court appearance on murder charges. What was reported as a panic attack turned out to be a much more serious health ailment.
Doctors at Long Beach Memorial Hospital, where he is being treated, have put the former rap mogul on blood thinners.
Knight has been suffering from blood clots, one of which is reportedly in his lung, since he was shot at a nightclub in L.A. last summer.
He was hospitalized with a clot this past November after fainting while in custody for robbery.
