(Reuters) - Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was returned to custody from hospital late on Wednesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.
Department spokesman Deputy Kelvin Moody said Knight was released from hospital at about 9 p.m. (0500 GMT). He declined to describe the nature of Knight's treatment.
Knight was taken to hospital on Tuesday shortly after pleading not guilty to murder, attempted murder and two counts of felony hit-and-run. Prosecutors said he ran over two men with his pickup truck in a parking lot, killing one of them.
Attorneys for Knight, who co-founded the influential hip-hop label Death Row Records, say he was attacked in the lot and was fleeing when he accidentally hit the men with his vehicle.
Knight, who has served time for violating the terms of past sentences, pleaded not guilty in November to a charge stemming from accusations he stole a camera from a celebrity photographer.
He was free on bail in that case at the time of the parking lot incident.
A lawyer for the second man struck by Knight's vehicle, Cle "Bone" Sloan, told the Los Angeles Times that Sloan was considering filing a civil lawsuit against Knight.
