Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight and comedian Katt Williams were arrested and charged with robbery last night after an incident with paparazzi.

After a celebrity photographer reported that the men stole her camera last month, L.A. police launched an investigation and ultimately brought criminal charges.

Because Knight has a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon, reports say that he could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted in this case.

Knight, 49, was arrested in Las Vegas, taken into custody without incident.

Williams, 43, was arrested at a L.A.-area courthouse when he appeared for an arraignment in a separate assault case, and faces up to seven years if convicted.

That's not likely, but the men are nonetheless forced to face the music after allegedly taking a paparazzo's camera in Beverly Hills back in September.

The incident remains under investigation by Beverly Hills police.

Chris Brown, covering Billboard magazine's latest issue, admits that "maybe I was out of control." This was prior to Suge Knight getting shot at his party.

How prescient the cover would become, and Brown spoke to the magazine about the shooting, which some believe was an assassination attempt on Chris:

"I realize that what I do for a living opens my life to public scrutiny and that I have a responsibility to everyone because of that exposure," Brown tells Billboard.

"I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is."

"No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone.

"No one can live in the past and expect to grow. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments but all of the moments that will make up my life."

The sad part for Chris is that while that sure sounds nice, more and more of the moments that make up his life have been controversial, sometimes even violent.

Suge Knight is going to be just fine. The rap mogul has been released from the hospital after surviving six gunshot wounds sustained Sunday morning.

Knight, 49, was sent home from Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai hospital Wednesday. Reports say he is healing well and will not need rehab, just follow-up visits.

Suge Knight took the bullets at a pre-VMAs bash hosted by Chris Brown at West Hollywood hotspot 1Oak, in what local police believe was a gang-related shooting.

The gunman who shot at Suge (or possibly tried to assassinate Chris Brown) is still at large, despite being caught on the security cameras at 1Oak.

Knight, Brown and rapper Game, all of whom have Bloods gang ties, were all present. No one has come forward to ID the shooter ... for obvious reasons.

Don't look for Suge to finger anyone, either. In fact, he reportedly feigned being sedated as soon as cops began asking questions about it in the hospital.

The incident wasn't the first time that the former CEO and co-founder of Death Row Records was involved in a shooting (nor will it be the last, we're guessing).

Suge Knight is reportedly fully conscious following surgery, although cops looking for intel from him regarding who shot him are probably in for disappointment.

Marion Knight, better known as Suge (for Sugar Bear) is recovering after being shot in August 2014.

Multiple rounds penetrated the body of the 49-year-old rap mogul Sunday morning in what law enforcement believes may have been a gang related shooting.

There are theories that the unknown assailant may have tried to assassinate Chris Brown, Suge Knight and/or Game, all of whom are tied to the Bloods.

So far, witness cooperation has been minimal at best. Even with the shooter captured on camera at 1Oak nightclub, no one seems to know who he is.

Or they're just not willing to go there.

Even though the gunman's shots put him in the ICU and fighting for his last breath, don't look for Suge to breathe a word of what he knows, if anything.

Suge Knight’s family has spoken out about the shooting at a West Hollywood nightclub that left the Death Row Records mogul in the ICU last weekend.

The 49-year-old is still recovering following injuries sustained when he was the target of a reported six bullets fired at a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown.

“The family of Suge Knight ask that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media,” the family statement said.

“Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood, he’s human. He’s done a lot of things for the community and the culture as a whole so we ask that you respect that.”

He has done many things for the culture overall, that can't be denied. Whether that list of accomplishments includes ordering a hit on Biggie, we can't say.

While eyewitnesses inside the club alleged that Chris Brown was the target of the bullets, sources close to Chris and his rep deny any sort of involvement.

No one has come forward to ID the man who fired at Suge in the club. Knight is sedated, and Brown says he has no idea who did open fire or why.

An attorney is actually alleging that the L.A. Police Department is responsible for the shooting that broke out at Chris Brown’s pre-VMAs party Sunday morning.

While Brown wasn’t hurt in the melee at West Hollywood nightclub 1OAK, famed rap producer Suge Knight was shot twice and is recovering from surgery.

Rumors are flying that the shooting was gang-related and/or a possible assassination attempt on Chris Brown. But a prominent lawyer has a different view.

Perry Sanders, the family lawyer for the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., said the LAPD (headed by Chief Charlie Beck) is to blame for the shooting.

Long ago, the department failed to indict Suge Knight for Biggie's murder; Sanders also charges that the LAPD knows who killed Notorious B.I.G.

Of course ... Sanders makes the claim about Brown's shindig even though the 1OAK shooting isn’t in the LAPD’s jurisdiction, making it flimsy at best.

As for the link between Suge and Big Poppa?

Fashion model Megan Hawkins, 19, was struck by a stray bullet in the shooting of Suge Knight Sunday morning at 1Oak nightclub in West Hollywood, Calif.

She seems in good spirits about this, at least.

Hawkins was the recipient, however unintentionally, of one of the shots fired in the possible Suge Knight and/or Chris Brown assassination attempt.

The 5'11" blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty posted photos of herself in a hospital bed and using a walker to get around after taking a round in her posterior.

Maybe it's just the pain medication, but she's taking it in stride, hilariously posting the comment, "my ass took a 9 mm and I'm keeping it as a souvenir."

Knight, the Death Row Records co-founder and rap mogul, was rushed into surgery after taking two bullets in the club. He is sedated but reportedly stable.

The gunman who shot Suge Knight and two others at a pre-VMA party early Sunday was caught on video, but witnesses to the attack can't or won't finger him.

West Hollywood nightclub 1OAK, where the shooting occurred, has a sophisticated surveillance system that covers almost the entire club, TMZ reports.

At least one of the security cameras clearly shows a man firing a gun.

Not only that, there have been numerous other Instagram videos that help pinpoint the suspect, whose facial features are clear enough to make out.

The issue? No witness has been able to identify Sunday's shooter.

While two of the four bullets fired struck Suge Knight, this may have been an assassination attempt on Chris Brown, who was hosting the VMA bash.

Chris Brown commented on Twitter following the possible attempt on his life Sunday morning which left Suge Knight shot and in the ICU with multiple bullet wounds.

Police are currently investigating whether the West Hollywood shooting was gang related, as Knight, rapper Game and Brown all share ties to the Bloods.

Moments after the shots were fired, Brown was seen climbing onto what appeared to be a bar in the club as a bouncer told partygoers to "Get down!"

Four hours later, around 5:45 a.m. Sunday, Brown spoke about the incident.

"It's disappointing that we as a society can#t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bullsh!t!!!' Chris tweeted.

Yes ... it's such a shame people can't have fun without throwing up gang signs, associating with known gang members and asking for trouble everywhere they go.

The gang affiliation shared by Chris Brown, Game and Suge Knight is being investigated as a possible cause of the latter's shooting Sunday morning.

Police are focusing on a beef between gangs that led to the nightclub incident that saw Suge Knight shot and sent to the ICU with multiple bullet wounds.

Chris Brown, Gang

The common denominator between Chris Brown, Suge Knight and Game, all of whom were present and have ties to the Bloods, is being extensively probed.

Chris Brown was throwing up gang signs prior to the shooting inside 1OAK early Sunday a.m., and was performing with a red bandana, the Bloods' calling card.

It's not the first time the troubled R&B star has flaunted his Bloods affiliation, throwing up their hand insignia and even giving shout-outs on Instagram.

At least one member of the Fruit Town Pirus, a Bloods-connected crew, is on Chris' payroll; Game, who was also at 1OAK, is proudly one of the Bloods.
