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. He was being evaluated at a jail hospital in Los Angeles, reports the LA Times. It wasn't clear whether Knight, co-founder of Death Row Records, would be able to post bail once he was medically cleared. He is accused of fatally running over a man with his truck.
