Suge Knight Appears in Court on Robbery Charge in Safety Restraint Chair, Fires Attorney

Rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight, who will probably spend the rest of his life in prison for murder, appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom this morning on a separate charge of robbery. He, along with comedian Katt Williams are accused of stealing a photographer’s camera in Beverly Hills on Sept. 5, 2014. (Sidebar: Suge was Katt's tour manager.) This morning, Suge, who fainted the last time he was court when the judge set bail at $25 million and arrived today chained to a wheelchair and he fired his attorney.
Knight had previously expressed interest in firing attorney David Kenner, who represents him in the robbery case. Although Kenner filed paperwork citing “irreconcilable conflicts,” Los Angeles Judge Ronald Coen said he wanted to hear it from Knight. That’s when Knight replied, “Kenner is fired.” Seated in a stretcher-type chair, Knight was wheeled into the courtroom. At one point, he interrupted a private discussion between the judge and attorneys to ask for a restroom break. In court, Knight asked to sit in a regular chair, saying that authorities chained him to a chair he had no need for. “I walk perfectly fine,” he told the judge, who said he was placed in the chair as a precaution because Knight told authorities he was paralyzed. Outside the courtroom, his other attorney Matthew Fletcher compared Knight’s chair confinement to a scene from the film “Silence of the Lambs.” He said Knight was walking that morning before the hearing. Knight’s next hearing is May 27, at which time he must have retained a new attorney for the robbery case.

It should also be noted that after firing Kenner, Suge asked the judge to represent himself in this robbery case, to which Judge Coen, replied: "No, but thanks for asking." Bwahahahahaha!
