Rapper Suge Knight was arrested, along with comedian Katt Williams, on Oct.29 for allegedly stealing a female photographer’s camera in Beverly Hills on Sept. 5. The incident, which reportedly left the photographer with ‘minor injuries,’ may land Suge in jail for 30 years or more.
Suge Knight, 49, has had a lot of run-ins with the police this year. After getting shot six times at Chris Brown‘s pre-VMAs party, he was detained in Las Vegas on Oct. 29 after allegedly stealing a female photographer’s camera. Comedian Katt Williams, 41, was also charged with felony robbery during the incident, which took place in Beverly Hills on Sept. 5.
Suge Knight Arrested — Locked Up In Jail For Stealing Photographer’s Camera
The two men are being charged with stealing an independent celebrity photographer’s camera outside of a studio in Beverly Hills. The men reportedly chased her down and grabbed her “forcibly,” which left her with minor injuries, according to the Daily Mail.
Katt was arrested when he showed up for court on Oct. 29 for the assault case and robbery, TMZ reported.
Though the investigation remains open, if found guilty, Suge will face significantly more jail time than Katt because of a previous assault with a deadly weapon conviction. Suge may serve as much as 30 years to life in prison, while Katt faces up to seven years in custody.
Suge Knight’s Shooter Identified By Police: Why They Still Can’t Make An Arrest
Suge was a victim in a violent shooting during Chris’s VMAs pre-party, where he was shot six times. Though suspects have been identified through security footage at the club, no arrests have been made.
It seems that no one is willing to talk to the LAPD about the gunman’s identity. And police do not have enough evidence to make any arrests.
