Police say they arrested Knight, 43, after officers saw him beating a woman while holding a knife near the Las Vegas Strip. The woman wasn’t stabbed, but was treated at a hospital for injuries. Authorities say Knight had possession of Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested.
A court spokesperson said the complain has been received by the court and a summons and arraignment date should follow.
”Whenever we have the opportunity to appear before the court and enter a not guilty plea, that’s what we’ll do,” said Richard Schonfeld, one of Knight’s attorneys in Las Vegas. ”We’re going to vigorously defend him against these charges.”
