Suge Knight's latest run-in with the law could be his last: The rap mogul could get up to life in prison for allegedly stealing a camera from a paparazzo outside a Beverly Hills studio last month. Police say the Death Row Records co-founder and comedian Katt Williams allegedly chased the photographer down an alley and Williams "forcibly" took her camera, reports the Los Angeles Times. She suffered minor injuries. Both men have been charged with robbery, which could get Knight 30 years to life because of an earlier conviction for assault with a deadly weapon.

A police spokesman says the men were arrested as part of an "ongoing, rapidly evolving investigation," and they're still trying to trace a man and woman who were with Knight and Williams at the time. Knight was arrested in Las Vegas yesterday and booked for being a fugitive and driving with a suspended license, NBC reports; Williams, who faces up to seven years in prison if found guilty, was arrested when he arrived at a California court for a separate assault case. (Knight isn't having a great year: He was shot multiple times at a pre-VMAs party hosted by Chris Brown in August.)
