SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - The embezzlement trial of the founder of a Rhode Island-based international sport institute has been put on hold for a second day after he was hospitalized for an undisclosed reason.

A spokesman for the state court system says Dan Doyle, the founder of the Institute for International Sport, was not present for the criminal trial on Tuesday. He says the court can’t comment on Doyle’s health. Doyle’s lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.

Doyle, of West Hartford, Connecticut, faces 18 counts, including embezzlement and forgery.

The trial is scheduled to continue on Wednesday.

Doyle last week threatened to initiate a sit-in and hunger strike in the courtroom over complaints that he is not receiving a fair trial. The trial began in September.
