8:26 AM PT -- According to charging docs, Momeni had a 5 1/4" butterfly knife in the center console of his car. He told cops it belonged to him.
The man charged with fatally stabbing Cash App founder Bob Lee has a history of brushes with the law, and was once arrested for illegal possession of a knife, according to court docs obtained by TMZ.
Nima Momeni was busted Thursday for the April 4 murder of Lee, which cops say happened after they got into a heated argument while driving in Momeni’s car in San Francisco. Cops say the men knew each other, although no motive's been disclosed yet.
Momeni, the owner of a Tech start-up company called ExpandIT, was previously arrested in 2011 for allegedly carrying a switchblade, again while driving in his car.
Momeni ended up pleading no contest to driving on a suspended license in exchange for a dismissal of the knife charge.
In a separate incident from 2004, Momeni was arrested for DUI.
In the less violent/criminal department ... Momeni's also, apparently, a liar.
On his LinkedIn page, he claims he attended UC Berkeley, but a University spokesperson denies that, asserting the alleged killer never attended the prestigious school.
Momeni is scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon for Lee's murder.
