An emotional Suge Knight appeared before a Los Angeles judge today (November 5), who definitely saw his point of view, but had no choice but to send him into the lion’s den.
Suge Knight just arrived at a L.A. courthouse to surrender in his robbery case.
Our photog asked Suge about the case, which could put him behind bars for the rest of his life. Suge made it clear … the rap against him isn’t fair.
Suge and Katt Williams were both arrested last week after a photog claimed they took her camera by force in Beverly Hills. Suge and Katt say it’s all B.S. — she was shooting Suge’s 4-year-old son and they never took the camera.
Suge Knight was just taken into custody for allegedly robbing a photog in Beverly Hills, but the judge was extremely sympathetic, saying he clearly understands why a celeb would be driven to extremes when the paparazzi shoot their young children.
TMZ was in court Wednesday afternoon when Suge appeared with his lawyer, James Blatt, to formally surrender … he’s been in Vegas since the arrest warrant was issued last week.
Judge Keith Schwartz said he couldn’t cut Suge a break because the D.A. has filed charges, but he said he understands how upsetting it is when paparazzi aggressively go after young children.
The judge also mentioned Justin Bieber being chased down an L.A. freeway, adding, “What kind of lunatics do that?”
The judge set bail at $500,000 and Suge was taken into custody and given priority for booking.
