Suge Knight Rushed to the Hospital Following Panic Attack

Former Death Row Records CEO began experiencing chest pains in the lockup area near courtroom.

Suge Knight pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and two charges of hit and run at L.A. County Superior Court this morning (Feb. 3). Moments after entering his plea, however, the hip hop exec was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance after suffering from a sudden panic attack.

TMZ reports that Knight was in the lockup area beside the courtroom when he began experiencing chest pains. It was later confirmed that it was all due to his nerves, and was not heart related. Last November, Knight was also taken to the hospital, while still in police custody, after fainting in a jail cell due to a blood clot.

Knight has been making headlines recently for allegedly running over two men with his pickup truck during a dispute on a movie set in Compton. The hit-and-run killed his friend Terry Carter, 55. Knight's $2 million bail was revoked after the judge decided that he was a flight risk. If convicted, he faces life in prison for the death of Carter. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
