Former hip hop mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight and comedian/actor Katt Williams were recently arrested on an alleged robbery that took place in Beverly Hills within Los Angeles County, California.
The two were arrested after a female photographer claims that the two allegedly snatched and stole her camera from her outside of a studio in Beverly Hills.
Allegedly, the female photog had a video recording on her camera as to the reason why it was allegedly snatched from her.
After being arrested when showing up for a court case and released in Malibu, Katt Williams explains to celebrity gossip site TMZ that they were falsely arrested and were not trying to steal the female photog’s camera.
According to Katt, he and Suge Knight were actually protecting a 5 year-old child whom Katt says the female photog was video recording ‘inappropriately’ alone in the alley.
Katt alleges she agreed to erase the video but they had to chase her after she lied and tried to flee.
The woman is seen on video speaking to an officer while holding a camera in her hand and reveals she had a physical confrontation with a female and not Katt or Suge but says Katt walked off with her camera.
While Katt, who was arrested and released in Malibu, Suge Knight was arrested in Las Vegas and both were charged with robbery.
The alleged incident with the photog allegedly happened back on September 5th.
Katt Williams faces 7 years while Suge Knight faces 30 years to life if charged for the robbery due to other existing charges on both their rap sheets.
