The /*Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department*/ said Knight was released about an hour after his arrest.
Sheriff's Sgt. Shawn Ruda told the Los Angeles Times that Knight was stopped by deputies, who ran his name through the system and found that he was wanted on a minor traffic warrant issued in Beverly Hills recently.
Knight was cited and released in West Hollywood after agreeing to appear in court within two months. Ruda said Knight, who has a long arrest record, was not doing anything wrong when he was stopped, and agreed to talk to the deputies.
