Former UCLA basketball star Billy Knight committed suicide on Tuesday.  Now comes news that the 39 year old was arrested last month for sexual abuse of a minor.  

The reported victim was just 9 years old, via TMZ Sports:

Ex-UCLA basketball star Billy Knight was arrested back in June after officials say he sexually abused a child ... and sources say the victim was only 9 years old.

TMZ Sports has learned ... in the weeks before Knight apparently killed himself, the 39-year-old was arrested and charged with 6 felonies for sexual encounters involving a girl under the age of 15. 

It looks like he chose to take his life rather than spend the rest of it in prison.  This dark story went from dark to darker.
