Katt Williams is the diminutive comedian previously best known for his role as Money Mike in the film Friday After Next. But thanks to his recent shenanigans, he's now the diminutive comedian best known for coming to your town and fucking shit up.
The recent history: At a November 8 performance in Oakland, Williams stayed onstage for only ten minutes, during which he "confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members," according to a lawsuit filed against Live Nation by a disgruntled audience member. (Now two people are suing Williams over the Sacramento meltdown.) And the weekend after Thanksgiving, Williams was involved in a police chase through Sacramento before slapping a Target employee in Woodland, CA. Further back in time, there's this stuff (thank you, TMZ).
The Weekly has learned that his Thursday no-show was caused not by an arrest, as audience members were told, but by an episode in which Williams' Hummer ran out of gas on the way to the event and the comedian allegedly slashed its tires and rammed it with a backup vehicle.
On Friday night, Williams performed at the Paramount, resulting in this (thank you, Seattle Times):
Williams performed at the Paramount Friday evening. But after the performance, Seattle police said some fans alleged that Williams attacked them after they tried to take a photo with him. Williams denied those allegations, police said, and no arrests were made.
Which brings us to yesterday, when, as Megan noted in the Morning News, Williams got himself arrested by the SPD. Take it away, Seattle Times:
On Sunday, Seattle police said Williams, 41, was at the World Sports Grille near Ninth Avenue North and Westlake Avenue North at about 2:30 p.m. when he allegedly exchanged words with other patrons, brandished a pool cue at the bar’s manager and refused to leave. Police also allege that Williams followed a family out of the bar, flicked a cigarette through the window of the family’s car, and threw a rock at the vehicle. The cigarette hit one of the family members just below her eye, police said. Williams was booked into the King County jail for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction. Police said he struggled with officers as they arrested him.
The latest: TMZ reports Williams was bailed out of King County Jail by Suge Knight, who is allegedly Williams' "tour manager." Stay tuned.
