SUGE KNIGHT PLEADS GUILTY IN ROBBERY CASE WITH KATT WILLIAMS
Suge Knight has been plastered all over headlines for much of the year due to his hit-and-run antics on the set of the Straight Outta Compton movie, which left one man dead and another critically injured, but that’s not the only serious trouble the former Death Row head honcho has found himself in this year.
A previous case, one in which he had been charged with robbery after he and comedian Katt Williams allegedly stole a photographer’s camera last year, was still ongoing, but its conclusion appears to be imminent. Knight, along with Williams, pleaded guilty to the robbery charges in court yesterday.
Just days after being shot in Los Angeles last year, Knight allegedly stole photographer Leslie Reddon‘s camera following a physical struggle, which reportedly took place because Knight didn’t want Reddon taking pictures of his son. Knight’s attorney, Thomas Mesereau, defended his client’s actions, saying they were that of a protective father, but the judge would have none of it. In fact, Knight’s attempts to get a happy birthday message to his son by holding up a sign to courtroom cameras was frowned upon by Judge Ronald Coen, and Coen threatened to shackle Knight’s hands should he try it again.
Knight remains behind bars on $10 million bail in his murder case regarding the Straight Outta Compton set hit-and-run.
