Suge Knight refused to leave his jail cell for a court hearing today, claiming that he's totally sick and couldn't come out.

While his hearing is postponed until Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Coen says that if by then he still doesn't come out of his cell, then he will be physically removed from it, according to City News Service. This particular hearing is regarding a case where he and comedian Katt Williams are accused of stealing a camera from a photographer in Beverly Hills in September.

Back in March, Knight collapsed in court when he heard that his bail was set at $25 million for a hit-and-run murder case. He has been in jail since January since he turned himself in to police after running over and killing a man with his car, and injuring another on the set of N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. He's facing the charges of murder and attempted murder.
