Suge Knight, Katt Williams arrested in paparazzi camera theft case
Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight and comedian Micah "Katt"
Williams were arrested Wednesday, accused of stealing a photographer's
camera last month.
The Los Angeles County
District Attorney's office said each man was charged with one count of
robbery. The alleged incident, involving a female photographer of
celebrities, took place September 5 outside a studio in Beverly Hills.
Knight, 49, faces up to
30 years in prison because he has a prior conviction for assault with a
deadly weapon. Williams, who was arrested when he showed up at court for
a different assault case, faces a maximum of seven years. Knight was
arrested in Las Vegas.
Prosecutors said they will ask for Knight's bail to be set at $1 million and for a $75,000 bail for Williams, 43.
Beverly Hills Police are still investigating the case, authorities said.
CNN reached out to representatives for both men Wednesday night without immediate success.
