Katt Williams has been arrested (again). This time the 47-year-old comedian was arrested for assault. On Saturday, Port of Portland police arrested Katt Williams on fourth-degree assault according to jail records.
Williams reportedly assaulted the driver of a town car after having an argument about his dog. Well, if you are going to get arrested at least Williams got arrested for something worthwhile.
Williams’ dog was transported from the Portland International Airport to the Moda Center, but for some reason, Katt was furious on how his pooch was treated. That is where Williams was scheduled to perform in Portland as part of Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” comedy tour.
Williams, real name Micah Sierra Williams, was so enraged that he attacked the driver and injured the man so badly that he had to be taken to the hospital for minor injuries to the face, including swelling and cuts. Katt Williams is John Wick IRL. Williams left the scene of the alleged assault in another vehicle.
Williams was taken to Multnomah County Jail and his bail was set at $2,500. Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office lists William as a fugitive in another jurisdiction on felony charges. TMZ reports that his out-of-state arrest warrant is from Atlanta, where he might be sent next.
