Suge Knight ended up in the hospital today after getting some bad news in court. The 49-year-old collapsed after the judge in his murder case set bail at $25 million, reports the AP. The rap mogul's attorney—who TMZ reports sought bail of $2 million and accused prosecutors of watching too much Empire—says Knight hit his head on a chair when he fell and knocked himself out.
