(TMZ) - Suge Knight is being rushed to a nearby hospital after suffering a panic attack  ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the call came in moments after the hearing Tuesday morning at L.A. County Superior Court and L.A.  Fire Department and paramedics sent an ambulance to pick Suge up.

This is the second time Knight has been taken to the hospital while in police custody -- he passed out in a jail cell last November as a result to a blood clot.

Suge pled not guilty. If convicted Suge faces life in prison for the death of friend Terry Carter.
