LAS VEGAS (AP) Rap music figure Marion "Suge" Knight has been hospitalized in Las Vegas after falling in his jail cell.

Attorney Richard Schonfeld said Monday that Knight was being checked after complaining of dizziness and chest pain.

Schonfeld said he didn't know exactly when Knight was hospitalized. The development came to light during an extradition hearing at which Knight's lawyer had planned to seek bail pending Knight's return to California to face a felony robbery charge.

The 49-year-old founder of Death Row Records was arrested Wednesday in Las Vegas and comedian Katt Williams was arrested in the Los Angeles area on a celebrity photographer's complaint that they stole her camera Sept. 5 in Beverly Hills.
