Suge Knight hospitalised after fall

Rap music figure Marion "Suge" Knight has been hospitalised in Las Vegas after suffering a fall in his jail cell.

Attorneys Richard Schonfeld and Julie Raye revealed at an extradition hearing that Knight is being treated for a painful bruise on the back of his neck and head after falling on Thursday (October 30), while doctors were checking him for dizziness and chest pain.

Judge Joe M Bonaventure set bail at 75,000 US dollars (£47,000) pending Knight's return to California to face a felony robbery charge that could represent a third-strike felony for Knight.

The 49-year-old founder of Death Row Records was arrested on Wednesday October 29 in Las Vegas following a celebrity photographer's complaint that he stole her camera on September 5 in Beverly Hills.

Comedian Katt Williams was arrested in the Los Angeles area as an accomplice in the alleged theft.
