Rap mogul Suge Knight collapses in court after judge sets $25 million bail.Drive Hot News
After his collapse, lawyer Matthew Fletcher told the court that his client, who is diabetic and has a blood clot, hadn't received any medication since Thursday.
Fletcher claimed Knight was being kept in solitary confinement without proper access to medication.
He also criticised the bail amount calling it "absurd" and "clearly excessive".
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Coen approved the amount because prosecutors noted that Knight was already on bail over a separate robbery case.
Since his arrest, Knight has suffered various health problems and this is the fourth time he's had to be taken from the courthouse by ambulance.
He'd previously been hospitalised after complaining of chest pains and also said he's now blind in one eye and has about 15 per cent vision in the other.
This latest court appearance was a bail review hearing.
Knight has previous convictions for assault with a deadly weapon and could face 25 years to life in prison if he's convicted at trial
