(Reuters) - Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was returned to the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday night, it said, after being hospitalized for medical treatment.

Department spokesman Deputy Kelvin Moody said Knight was returned to custody around 9 p.m. He declined to describe the nature of Knight's treatment.

Knight was taken to hospital on Tuesday shortly after pleading not guilty to murder and other charges over a fatal hit-and-run incident in Compton, California.
