Two of entertainment's most notorious figures were arrested on Wednesday. Death Row founder Suge Knight and comedian Katt Williams were both apprehended by police after being accused of stealing a photographer's camera last month, TMZ reports.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said Williams and Knight were each charged with one count of robbery. The alleged incident, involving a female paparazzo, took place September 5 outside a studio in Beverly Hills.

Knight faces up to 30 years in prison because of his lengthy rap sheet, which includes a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon. He was arrested in Las Vegas. Williams, who was arrested when he showed up at court for a different assault case, faces up to seven years. Bail will be set at $1 million for the former rap mogul and $75,000 for the comedian.

Beverly Hills Police are still investigating the case, authorities said.
