Knight, 49, was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday after his arraignment on murder charges related to a fatal hit-and-run accident in Compton last week. He had pleaded not guilty.

Knight was involved in an altercation outside a restaurant last week. As he attempted to drive away, he allegedly ran over two men, killing one and injuring a second. Knight was subsequently charged with one count of murder, one count of attempted murder, two counts of hit-and-run with an allegation that he committed a serious and violent felony while out on bail in another pending case.

The hit-and-run case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
