Suge Knight to Stand Trial on Murder Charges, Experiences Medical Emergency After Court
Suge Knight was ordered to stand trial for murder and attempted murder charges during a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles on Thursday (April 16).
The charges stem from a January 29 incident in which the former rap mogul ran over two men with a pickup truck, killing one and seriously injuring the other. According to the Los Angeles Times, Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen made the decision after the surviving victim, Cle “Bone” Sloan, refused to testify against Knight last Monday (April 13).
During his testimony, the 51-year-old actor and consultant told prosecutors he couldn’t remember many of the details surrounding the hit and run. Sloan was left severely injured while a second man, Terry Carter, was killed. Sloan did admit that he was the aggressor in the altercation but wouldn't identify Knight in the courtroom. “I'm no snitch .... I will not be used to send Suge Knight to prison," he said.
After today's preliminary hearing was finished, Knight was rushed to a local hospital for a “medical emergency,” sheriff’s officials said.
TMZ is also reporting that Knight's bail was reduced from $25 million to $10 million, which his attorney, Matt Fletcher, said his client could possibly post today.
There's no word on Knight's current medical condition or if he did post bail.
