LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas judge set bail at $75,000 for rap music figure Marion "Suge" Knight, whose lawyer says he remains hospitalized after falling in jail last week.

Attorneys Richard Schonfeld and Julie Raye said Monday that Knight is being treated for a painful bruise on the back of his neck and head after falling Thursday while doctors were checking him for dizziness and chest pain.

Judge Joe M. Bonaventure set bail pending Knight's return to California to face a felony robbery charge that could represent a third-strike felony for Knight.

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.
