Former rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight was kept in hospital overnight on Tuesday (03Feb15) after suffering a "medical emergency" following a court hearing.

The Death Row Records founder pleaded not guilty to a string of charges, including murder and attempted murder, related to the hit-and-run death of a friend in Los Angeles last week (29Jan15), and then collapsed outside court.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials took Knight, who is now facing life behind bars, to a local hospital.

Reports suggest he suffered a panic attack.

Knight, 49, ran over and killed Terry Carter and left another man, actor Cle 'Bone' Sloan, injured as he attempted to drive away from an altercation on a movie set in Compton last Thursday.

As well as the murder charges, he has also been hit with two counts of hit and run and allegations that he committed a violent felony while out on bail pending another case.

He is scheduled to appear in court again on Monday (09Feb15) for a bail review hearing.
