Rap mogul Suge Knight is facing up to a whopping 30 years behind bars after he and comedian Katt Williams were arrested for stealing a female photographer’s camera.
The 49-year-old rap mogul and Katt reportedly nabbed a woman’s camera in an incident that left her with minor injuries. Check out Katt’s crazy explanation of the incident!
The alleged incident happened on September 5 in Beverly Hills, California.
The founder of Death Row Records was detained in Las Vegas, Nevada, while 41-year-old Katt was arrested as he arrived at the Inglewood Courthouse in Las Angeles to face charges relating to a separate assault case.
The District Attorney’s Office stated, “The two men are suspected of stealing the camera of an independent celebrity photographer on Sept. 5 outside a studio in Beverly Hills”.
If found guilty, Suge faces significantly more time than Katt due to a previous assault with a deadly weapon conviction.
In fact they said, “If convicted, Knight, who has a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon, faces up to 30 years to life in state prison. Williams faces up to seven years in custody.” Wow! That’s a little severe!
Both men made bail, with prosecutors asking it to be set at $1 million for the record label founder and $75,000 for the comedian.
Beverly Hills police Sgt. Max Subin told the LA Times that after coming out of the studio the comedian and hip hop mogul came across the photographer and allegedly chased the woman down an alley.
The officer said Kat then grabbed the woman’s camera ‘forcibly’ and she ‘sustained minor injuries’.
Katt had a rather interesting explanation for his latest run-in with the law. He explained that he and Suge were protecting a child.
