Suge Knight was arrested yesterday (Oct. 30) in Las Vegas, along with Katt Williams, for allegedly stealing a photographer’s camera last month. While the comedian is already out of custody, the former Death Row music exec remains jailed. 

It seems that Knight must answer for some crimes in Los Angeles, but he’s hoping to get bail and get there without a ride from the authorities.

Reports Page Six:

Rap music figure Marion “Suge” Knight had a Las Vegas traffic warrant reduced to a parking ticket on Thursday, but was returned in custody to the Clark County jail to await a Monday extradition hearing in a California robbery case.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Joseph Sciscento quickly arraigned Knight in a glass-walled court basement holding facility, and gave the founder of Death Row Records 90 days to pay a $190 fine on what had been a June 2013 suspended license charge.

Knight’s attorney, Richard Schonfeld, said later he plans to ask another Las Vegas judge at an extradition hearing Monday to allow Knight to post bail and make his way to the Los Angeles area on his own to answer the robbery complaint in Beverly Hills.

Since Knight has a prior conviction, he can face up to 30 years if he is found guilty of the robbery.
