Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has been taken from a Los Angeles courthouse for an undisclosed medical issue.

Knight was scheduled to appear in court Thursday for arraignment on a criminal threats charge and for a scheduling hearing in a robbery case, but he never appeared in the courtroom.

Los Angeles Superior Court spokeswoman Mary Hearn says Knight was taken away by ambulance but there was no information explaining why.

The Sheriff's Department did not have any immediate information on Knight's condition.

Knight was charged with robbery after a photographer reported that Knight and comedian Katt Williams stole her camera in September. Knight has pleaded not guilty to robbery and prosecutors recently added a criminal threats charge.

Williams also pleaded not guilty.
