The former CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight, has been arrested with comedian Micah "Katt" Williams in Beverly Hills after allegedly stealing a camera from a photographer in Beverly Hills last month. Knight, 49, and Williams, 43, were charged with one count of robbery, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.

The pair have been charged after allegedly stealing a photographer’s camera in Beverly Hills last month. According to Beverly Hills police, on September 5th Knight and Williams left a recording studio and encountered a waiting photographer, whereupon they reportedly chased her down an alley and forcibly took her camera, leaving the woman with minor injuries. Investigations are still ongoing, but the police believe there’s enough of a case to begin prosecution. Both men are no strangers to criminal controversy.

After pleading no contest, Williams got away with just half a sentence.
This past Thursday saw comedian Katt Williams sentenced to 90 days of community service for misdemeanor evading an officer. Well, at least he got away without any jail time. The funnyman was originally charged with felony vehicle code violation, but that was later downgraded. The judge also agreed to lower the original 180-day sentence down to just 90, provided that Williams really does the work and stays out of trouble. Williams pleaded no contest to the charge.
The entire case came about after the comedian got into a car chase last November, according to the LA Times. Williams was performing a series of tour dates along the West Coast, and he was also going through a rough time in general. As we’ve learned from many a public celebrity breakdown, personal troubles and a packed work schedule don’t tend to mix. Williams started the chase after being approached by the cops about disturbing the peace, according to a Fox 40 report at the time. After he was charged, he repeatedly failed to show up to court, a habit which didn’t help the situation at all. He later told the press that failing to appear in court was a mistake, as was getting into the chase in the first place.
Now, however, it looks like Williams’s trouble-making days are behind him, as well as his performing days. In December he made the announcement that he would be retiring from standup and, in confirmation, his official website lists no further tour dates.

Comedian Katt Williams was arrested last year for reckless driving which lead to a police car chase. He then missed his arraigned court date earlier this week, which lead the judge to put a warrant out for his arrest, again, reports TMZ.
The comedian, who is set to appear in the next Scary Movie flick - the fifth in the series - to be released later this year, was arrested outside his home in Los Angeles when police spotted him, knowing that there was a warrant out for him. He was entirely cooperative with police, reports claim. However, after leaving jail once the $100,500 bail had been paid, he told TMZ that the reason he missed his court date was because he was in court elsewhere!
Williams is currently fighting a custody battle with his former nanny for his 8 children, one of whom is a biological son while the other seven are adopted. The battle has been going to and fro for months, and after choosing that court date over his criminal court date, it didn't work out so well. "No, I actually don't [have custody]" he said. "[T]he lady who tried to take 'em and lost in court twice, they gave 'em to her."
Another day, another Katt Williams arrest. This time, the comedian was apprehended by cops after he failed to appear in court for a hearing related to his November 25, 2012 run-in with the California Highway Patrol (he was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle.) He also slapped a Target employee for no apparent reason.
Due to Williams' no-show, he forfeited his previous $50,000 bond and bail was reset at just over $100,000, the Sacramento District Attorney's Office confirmed to E! News on Tuesday (January 7, 2012). He faces charges of evading police and reckless driving after refusing to stop for officers engaged in a low-speed pursuit. The popular comedian may have a reason for the no-show, given that he was busted at his Los Angeles home on December 28, 2012 on suspicion of child endangerment. Police had allegedly discovered a stolen loaded gun on the promises. After leaving Van Nuys Jail following his release, Williams told TMZ's cameramen, "How do you keep kids safe without guns?"
The 41-year-old has also threatened to lay the smack-down on Quentin Tarantino for his extensive use of the N-word in his new movie Django Unchained. Williams appears to hail from the Spike Lee school of indignation saying, "Quentin Tarantino thinks he can say the N-word. But I checked with all of Ni**adom and nobody knows where he got his pass from. I hope he didn't get it from Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx cause they aren't going to help you when I see you."
Another celebrity making a last ditch attempt to climb up our 2012 ‘fallen from grace’ list is the comedian Katt Williams. Adding to his list of recent misdemeanours, the controversial comic has now been arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and possession of a stolen gun.
According to a report from Fox News, LA police officer Norma Eisenman, Katt was taken into custody on Friday (December 28, 2012), following a welfare check at his home. During the check, the authorities reportedly discovered more than one firearm – one of which had previously been reported as stolen. The LA County Department of Children and Family Services did not state how many children were living at the home and have not clarified whether or not the children were subsequently removed from the abode. Williams has one biological child and seven adopted children.
This isn’t the first time that Williams has found himself on the wrong side of the law, of late. Earlier this month, he was arrested on a felony warrant, relating to a police chase and the previous month, he was accused of hitting another man on the head with a bottle, during a fight. All in all, it has been a tumultuous year for Katt Williams and it seems to have culminated in a pretty shameful ordeal.
Katt Williams is keeping busy, but not in a good way, unfortunately. The comedian's most recent stunt was getting into a massive fight outside a Hollywood nightclub on Friday night, mere hours after he had been arrested for child endangerment, and subsequently being released on bail, worth $100 000.
The funny-man was seen alongside Suge Knight, who almost mowed down several people in his SUV, after throwing a few punches while getting to the vehicle.
The video, released by TMZ, doesn’t make it clear what the cause of the disturbance was, but Williams and Knight, who manages Katt, were certainly in a hurry to get away from the scene. Then again, that might have been due to the people chasing them into their car and off the premises. This newest incident comes right on the heels of another disturbance, in which Katt was arrested in front of a Subway, while Suge was getting a mani-pedi. We couldn’t make this stuff up. To tally up: in the past month Williams has slapped a Target employee, been arrested for a disturbance and for child endangerment, gotten in trouble over unpaid taxes and gotten in a bar fight. Well, at least the man keeps things interesting. What would the holiday season be without a good brawl here and there?
Continue reading: Tis The Season For Katt Williams To Get In Trouble With The Law (Again)
Comedian and one of 2012's tabloid darlings Katt Williams is at it again, this time getting into trouble with the law for child endangerment. Still, the comedian has a defence (or something like it), announcing after his release from jail last night: "how do you keep kids safe without guns?" How indeed...
TMZ first reported the news that Williams was placed into police custody late last night (Dec 28) for allegedly endangering his four children. His house was raided by police whereupon they found numerous firearms and illicit substances, with his children taken into custody for their own safety along with Williams. Apparently, the items were seized by police who then placed Williams into familiar surroundings with a $100,000 bail on his head.
After his release on bail yesterday, Williams was confronted by TMZ outside the police station he was being held in, where he gave his side to the story. He told the gossip site that the guns, which were seized, had been kept in a secure and locked box, adding, "If the police come in and raid my place and break into my gun boxes, you're gonna find guns! I'm not in a gang, what difference does it make?"
Well, Katt Williams life is just getting more bizarre by the day. The comedian - who has found himself on the wrong side of the law numerous times over the past couple of months - was detained by cops at a Subway restaurant in West Hollywood on Thursday evening (December 20, 2012). Police suspected the comic was involved in some sort of disturbance, though believe us, this just gets weirder.
Williams told TMZ.com that the drama began while he was waiting for Suge Knight to get a MANICURE at a nearby nail station. Katt was handcuffed and placed in the back of a squad car though was eventually released from custody and allowed to leave the scene. He says cops initially took some weed he was carrying, and a gun, but eventually gave both items back because he had a medical marijuana card for the drugs and a permit for the weapon. The comedian - who slapped a Target employee last month - says the incident was racially motivated and wants to sue the cops.
After Katt had been released from custody, one Subway employee brought sandwiches for both him and Suge. The employee said he never saw the comedian involved in any sort of physical altercation. It has only been 13 days since the comedian was busted outside of Sacramento on December 7 on a felony warrant related to a police chase through the city.
The Target employee that was filmed receiving a slap from troubled comedian Katt Williams provoked the attack by using the 'N-word' - at least thats what Katt is saying anyway.
According to a video obtained by TMZ, the funny-man described the whole event during a performance at Hollywood's The Comedy Store, saying that prior to the attack on November 25th, the employee said to Williams; "Your assistant is already suing you, you p**sy ass n***er." Katt goes on to say that he replied with, "Say it again and see what happens," after which he hit the guy on the side of the head.
The employee's first jab is a reference to the lawsuit Katt is facing from former assistant who claims the comic punched her and is suing him for $5 million, but where the dropping of the N-Bomb came from is beyond us.
