Katt Williams Sued for Allegedly Assaulting a Waiter With a Salt Shaker
It seems that Katt Williams may end up back in court again, this time for allegedly attacking a waiter with a salt shaker.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Williams arrived at popular restaurant, Spondivits, in Atlanta back in April 2016, and when he was told there would be a wait for a table, became outraged and threw a glass salt shaker at the waiter.
Kevin Oliveira is now suing Williams, saying that he suffered severe injuries and had to be transported to a local hospital. He claims his injuries required ten stitches to treat a large gash to his lip and mouth.
Oliveira's suit is seeking "unspecified damages for medical expenses, impairment of earning capacity and past and future lost earnings."
This isn't Williams' first run-in with the court system. Back in December 2016, he was sentenced to five years of probation stemming from a March 2016 gun and drug case.
Legal woes aside, Williams made a fantastic return to television via the award-winning show, Atlanta, in the season's opening "Alligator Man" episode. His turn was so impressive, there's talk of a possible Emmy nomination.
