Never a dull moment during an O.J. Trial!
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) -- Celebrity crime writer Dominick Dunne was rushed Monday from the courtroom where he is covering the O.J. Simpson trial to a Las Vegas hospital after complaining of pain.
"I am in a lot of pain. Lot of pain," Dunne, 82, told a CNN journalist who is covering the trial. "I want to go back to my hotel."
Dunne, who is battling bladder cancer, appeared ashen as he left the courtroom. Court staffers called paramedics, and Dunne was taken to Valley Hospital.
About an hour later, Dunne told CNN over the telephone that he was "OK."
"I am doing fine under the circumstances," he said over the phone from the hospital. "But this probably means that I will have to go back to New York in the next few days."

I guess if you're a crime writer and want to do some "research", hanging out at the O.J. trial is a good way to get new material.
