The alleged crime occurred April 1, 2017.
Knight was 39. He did not have a wife or girlfriend, as he points out in his video, and he "isolated himself from friends and family members".
Knight was found by fire officials along a Phoenix roadway at approximately 2:45am, local police confirmed in a statement.
The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office hasn't released a cause of death.
Nonetheless, there is a strong belief that Knight may have committed suicide judging from the sorry tone of his last message that he had penned down and posted verbally on Youtube. I isolated myself from my family members.
Honeycutt died after a police standoff in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Knight averaged 14.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in his senior season for the Bruins before a brief worldwide basketball stint in Japan.
Knight is the second former UCLA star to die tragically in recent days. I was a taker. He averaged 14.1 points in his final season at UCLA, second on the team, behind former National Basketball Association player Jason Kapono (16.0), and just ahead of ex-NBAer Matt Barnes (13.5). If this happens, you probably have a mental illness.
He said he heard voices and didn't know where they came from. He said in the video that it was probably his "last message on earth". You can't play around with life. "I just asked God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". Knight went undrafted by the NBA in 2002 and played basketball in Europe and Japan.
Former coach and family friend Bort Escoto says he had grown increasingly concerned about Honeycutt's wellbeing before his passing. But he said he left "some things" for him, saying it's not much, but it's what he had left.
Friday night, the Los Angeles police responded to a call about an erratically-behaving man in his 20s who was barricaded in his home.
