Katt Williams, Suge Knight Arrested on Suspicion of Stealing Camera

Katt Williams, Suge Knight Arrested: Man

Comedian Katt Williams and former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of stealing a camera from a photographer, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

According to authorities, the men are suspected of stealing a camera from a female independent celebrity photographer on Sept. 5 outside of a Beverly Hills studio and are charged with one count of robbery. Williams was arrested Wednesday morning in Inglewood, and Knight was taken into custody in Las Vegas.

Because both men have lengthy records of past offenses, they could serve serious time if convicted. Knight, who has a previous conviction for assault with a deadly weapon, faces up to 30 years to life in state prison, while Williams could spend up to seven years in custody.

Bail is set at $1 million for Knight and $75,000 for Williams.

The Beverly Hills Police Department is continuing to investigate the case.

      Is there a single black person out there that isn’t a criminal?

    2. I hope the suspicion is unfounded, so our comedic icon Katt Wiliams and ultra successful music mogul Suge Knight, can continue to share talent and spread myrth unincumbered. Here is the milliion dollar question – Why would a member of the paparazzi accuse two millionaires of stealing her camera? Ask Alec Baldwin, Halle Barry, Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye West, and the two sons of late Princess Diana, why one might be compelled to snatch a camera away from a paparazzi.
