The alleged crime occurred April 1, 2017.

Knight played 117 games for the Bruins, breaking out as a full-time starter as a fifth-year senior.

The former basketball star's body was found along a roadway in downtown Phoenix at around 2.45am Wednesday, according to reports.

The official cause of death has yet to be determined by the Maricopa County medical examiner, but no foul play is suspected, according to the Phoenix Police Department. Knight published a cryptic, six-minute video, titled "I am Sorry Lord", just hours before he was found dead. "I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do".

Knight played at UCLA from 1997-2002 and later had an global career.

It's the second death of a former UCLA basketball player in the past week.

Knight, who was facing six felonies, apparently chose to end his life instead.

Astros send reliever Ken Giles down to Triple-A Fresno
The right-hander allowed three runs without recording an out in Houston's 6-5, extra-inning victory against Oakland on Tuesday. After serving as the closer on the Astros' World Series-winning team a year ago, Giles has struggled mightily in 2018.

Mental illness is a awful disease and should be treated very seriously.

Many former players and friends took to Twitter to give their condolences following Knight's tragic passing.

He is also alleged to have posted a Youtube video explaining his life that he described as full of depressions. I hear voices in my head constantly and I don't know where they come from. "I just feel like I can't continue on". Life is not a game. He never made it to the National Basketball Association but played for France and Japan after college. Speaking to the Los Angeles Daily news, Escoto said that "Honeycutt had been going through some things." .

The AP News reports Escoto as saying, "I planned on going to his house to talk, but his mom called me 45 minutes later saying, 'He had a gun and was talking insane..."

Friday night, the Los Angeles police responded to a call about an erratically-behaving man in his 20s who was barricaded in his home.

Honeycutt played for UCLA from 2009 to 2011.
