Marion “Suge” Knight had a bail amount set at a hearing today.  

L.A. Deputy D.A. Cynthia Barnes filed a motion on Thursday for Knight’s bail be set at $25 million, which Los Angeles superior court judge Ronald S. Coen granted. Knight’s lawyer, Matthew Fletcher, argued that Knight’s bail should be set at $2 million.

The rapper is accused of running down and killing former business associate, Terry Carter. Knight has pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run charges.

Shortly after Coen ordered the bail amount, Knight collapsed, marking the fourth time Knight has left the courthouse by ambulance since his hearings began in early February. According to the Associated Press, Fletcher said Knight told him that he hadn’t received any medication to treat his diabetes and blood clot since Thursday.
