Suge Knight collapses in court again, bail set at $25 million

Suge Knight Collapses in Court

Suge Knight just can’t catch a break. Maybe he just needs to join me for a few martinis when this is all said and done — pending he is able to get out of jail. A California judge set his bail at $25 million on Friday.

Immediately upon hearing this, the Death Row Founder slumped in his chair, bumping his head while sliding to the floor according to his defense attorney.

Paramedics were on board to scrape Knight off of the floor, place him on the stretcher and cart him off on in the ambulance on his routine courthouse/jail to the hospital route. First it was anxiety attacks, then blood clots and missing medicine for his diabetes. Then we learned Suge was blind in one eye and couldn’t see out of the other one, which is why he was in court in the first place.

His alleged blindness (in one eye) is the reason Suge has been in jail for running over two men, killing one of them with his SUV on the set for the commercial film Straight Outta Compton in Los Angeles.

Matthew Fletcher was outside the courtroom telling the Associated Press, “he’s getting treated worse than Charles Manson.”

Fletcher claims Knight is a diabetic who hasn’t received his medicine since last Thursday; also Knight was being kept in solitary confinement without proper access to medication.

What next? Oh yeah we left out the headaches and chest pains. Knight has suffered serious health disorders since being incarcerated.

This latest court appearance was a bail review hearing. Fletcher had asked the judge to set Knight’s bail at $2 million.
