Suge Knight Refuses to Leave Jail Cell
A California judge has delayed a hearing in Suge Knight’s robbery case after the former Death Row music mogul told deputies he was too sick to leave his cell, Billboard reports.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen says he came close to ordering Knight forcibly removed from his cell for Wednesday’s hearing. Instead he chose to delay the proceedings to line up with a Friday hearing in Knight’s murder case.
Knight, 50, is charged along with comedian Katt Williams with stealing a celebrity photographer’s camera in September. Both men have pleaded not guilty.
Knight has no attorney in the robbery case. It is unclear if Coen will appoint him counsel at Friday’s hearing.
