Suge Knight and Katt Williams: Arrested, Charged With Robbery!

by at .  Updated at .

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.

Messages left for Anthony Brooklier, an attorney who has represented Suge Knight, and to Williams' agent, Chris Smith, were not immediately returned.

Knight was shot and wounded in a West Hollywood, Calif., club in a possible assassination attempt on Chris Brown a week and a half before the incident.

Williams has starred in several mug shots, er, comedy specials in the past. He has also appeared in films such as First Sunday and Friday After Next.
