Suge Knight lawyer compares client to Lucious Lyon of ‘Empire’ (VIDEO)

Suge Knight collapsed after his bail hearing today, but not after his lawyer invoked the hit FOX hit drama Empire.

Prosecutors sought and were granted $25 million bail for Knight who is accused of murdering two men with his SUV.

Knight’s lawyer complained that it was excessive accusing the prosecutor: “It’s like he’s watching ‘Empire’ and says he’s an unrepentant and shameless criminal. Prosecute him.”

As everyone knows by now, in the premiere episode of Empire, Lucious Lyon played by Terrence Howard, killed Bunkie in cold blood. And during the finale, Lucious was arrested and thrown into jail (just like Suge).

After the bail hearing, on cue, Suge collapses because he’s sick (just like Lucious, except he was misdiagnosed with ALS).

Suge claims he is blind in his left eye, among other physical ailments.

See? Empire.
