Rap mogul Suge Knight and comedian Katt Williams are hitting back at allegations they stole a woman’s camera during a confrontation in Beverly Hills last month.
“Our position is that the charges are absolutely unfounded,” Knight’s lawyer Richard Schonfeld told the Daily News Thursday.
“I can tell you from the evidence I have seen, it doesn’t support the charge against Mr. Knight,” he said. “(The alleged victim) didn’t mention Suge Knight doing anything to her in her statement to the police.”
Schonfeld said that at the time of the alleged robbery on Sept. 5, his client was still recovering from multiple gunshot wounds sustained during a nightclub shooting two weeks prior at a party hosted by singer Chris Brown.
“Mr. Knight had been released from the hospital just seven days earlier. He was in no physical shape to do anything,” he said. “My understanding is that Mr. Knight wasn’t immediately present when the conduct occurred.”
The lawyer said Knight had no idea he was a wanted man in California at the time of his Wednesday arrest in Las Vegas and was suffering in jail.
“He doesn’t feel good. He’s got a lot of pain,” Schonfeld told The News. “They won’t prescribe the type of pain medication that his doctors previously prescribed him, based on jail policy.”
