Suge Knight got emotional and lost his cool in court Friday – saying he’s worried he’s going to die in jail.
“My time is ticking some days because of the health problems I have, and right now I’m not getting a fair chance to prove my innocence,” Knight told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen.
Suge Knight seeks court approval to visit with sick mother.
In court, prosecutor Cynthia Barnes said she was worried that if Knight learns the identities of three confidential civilian witnesses in the case, he might go after them.
Suge Knight will be allowed to see sick mom after judge’s ruling.
Sloan, a former gang member, was caught on tape fighting with Knight in the parking lot of a Compton burger stand in January 2015 before Knight hit the gas on his truck and ran over both Sloan and local businessman Terry Carter – killing Carter.
When he spoke to the judge Friday, Knight said he’s in bad health with blood clots in his arm and neck that landed him in the hospital.
Arguing for Knight’s right to unredacted discovery, his lawyers claimed that prosecutors gave up their right to withhold witness information when they allegedly shared case paperwork with a man believed to be a jailhouse informant.
“I don’t want you to die,” Judge Coen told Knight in court Friday.
