Suge Knight and Katt Williams are looking at possible prison time after being arrested and charged with robbery. The arrest stems from an incident back in September where both men allegedly stole a camera from a member of the paparazzi. From the AP via ABC News:
The men are accused of taking a paparazzo’s camera in Beverly Hills, California, on Sept. 5. The incident remains under investigation by Beverly Hills police, who did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
Williams, who was arrested at a Los Angeles-area courthouse when he appeared for an arraignment in a separate assault case, faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.
Knight, 49, was arrested in Las Vegas. Police said he was taken into custody without incident.
A phone message for Anthony Brooklier, an attorney who has represented Knight, was not immediately returned. An email message sent to Williams’ agent, Chris Smith, was not immediately returned.
If convicted, Knight could face up to 30 years in prison due to his prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon and Williams would be looking at seven years.
