LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles prosecutors have charged Suge Knight and comedian Katt Williams with robbery after a celebrity photographer reported the men stole her camera.

Prosecutors say Williams and Knight, who founded Death Row Records, were arrested Wednesday. Knight has a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

The pair are accused of taking a paparazzo's camera in Beverly Hills on Sept. 5.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office says Williams was arrested when he appeared for an arraignment in a separate assault case, and Knight was arrested in Las Vegas.

A phone message for Anthony Brooklier, an attorney who has represented Knight, was not immediately returned.

An email message sent to Williams' agent Chris Smith was not immediately returned.
