|Entertainer Katt Williams and Big Suge Knight shared cuff links. They were busted after a woman accused the two of a robbery.|
Entertainer and media mogul both seen their share of the iron college. Once again, these two got a taste of the county lockup. This round could put them in for life. Both men are affiliated with the domestic terrorist group The Bloods.
Katt Williams, famed comedian and known psychopath and Big Suge, the former co-founder of Death Row were accused of smacking up a woman and taking her property.
With these charges, Big Suge could spent a lifetime in the iron college. Katt Williams could earn himself a decade of time in the iron college.
TMZ reports that the alleged incident went down back on Sept. 5 outside a studio … according to the L.A. County D.A.
Katt was arrested this morning when he showed up in court for an assault case — and TMZ obtained Suge’s mug shot … taken after he was nabbed in Las Vegas. They were booked for robbery. Both men have lengthy rap sheets … and as a result the D.A.’s Office says Suge could face 30 years to life in state prison — while Williams could be nailed for up to 7 years.
CNN added that prosecutors will ask for Knight's bail to be set at $1 million and for a $75,000 bail for Williams,
Beverly Hills Police are still investigating the case, authorities said.
CNN reached out to representatives for both men Wednesday night without immediate success.
Knight founded the successful Death Row Records in 1991, signing artists such as Snoop Doggy Dogg (since then known as Snoop Dogg and Snoop Lion) and Tupac Shakur.
Knight was driving the car in which Shakur was a passenger when the rapper was shot to death in Las Vegas in 1996.
Shortly afterward, Knight spent several years in prison for violating parole on assault and weapons convictions. That prison time -- along with Shakur's death, feuds between Knight and a number of rappers and desertions by Dr. Dre, Snoop and others -- contributed to the label's bankruptcy in 2006.
In August, Knight and two other people were shot while inside a celebrity-filled Sunset Strip party hosted by singer Chris Brown on the eve of the MTV Video Music Awards.
Williams began his career as a stand-up comic, gaining attention in 1999 for his often raunchy comedy club appearances. Television appearances on the BET network led to more success.
His 2006 HBO special "Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt.1" raised his profile even higher.
He has acted in several movies, including Eddie Murphy's "Norbit," and his voice is featured in several popular cartoons, including "The Boondocks."
