Katt Williams Arrested Again, This Time on Suspicion of Battery After Dispute at a Studio City Hotel
Comedian Katt Williams was arrested yet again, this time on suspicion of battery at a Studio City hotel.
The L.A. Times reports that Williams (Micah Williams) was arrested after officers were called to the Sportsmen's Lodge at Ventura Boulevard around 11 a.m. on Sunday (July 24) after a female employee reported being in an altercation with the actor/comedian. The unidentified woman reportedly suffered a minor injury following the dispute, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Gary Chilingarian said.
Williams, 44, was booked on a misdemeanor count of battery and was held on $20,000 bail, until being released around 4 p.m. He's scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 18, according to jail records.
This latest arrest is just one of many for the clearly troubled comedian and star of Scary Movie 5. In June, the comedian was arrested after allegedly getting into a fist fight with a 17-year-old in Georgia. Just his past March, he was arrested for allegedly choking his bodyguard at his Atlanta home. According to 11Alive, authorities executed a search warrant at Williams’ home after his bodyguard, Coery Dixon, filed a report alleging that the funnyman assaulted him and held him against his will. That incident came just days after he was attacked at a Beanie Sigel concert in Philadelphia. And that altercation came on the heels of Williams and Kevin Hart getting into a brief feud. Williams called Hart a “puppet” and challenged him to a $5 million comedy duel. Williams later apologized to Hart.
Here's hoping Katt can get the help he needs and stay out of trouble moving forward.
