Prosecutors filed the charges Monday, alleging Knight intended to run down a friend and another man after an argument on a movie set. One man was killed.

Attorney James Blatt says Knight accidentally ran over the men on Thursday as he tried to escape a vicious attack. He turned himself in to police on Friday.

Knight's initial bail of $2 million was revoked after a court commissioner agreed with authorities that he was a potential flight risk and could intimidate witnesses.

He's scheduled to appear in court in Compton on Tuesday.
