Katt Williams does a stand-up routine called “Every Day I’m Hustlin’“. Guess that isn’t too far from the truth. It appears the comedian had some kind of role in hustlin’ that weed, as evidenced by what cops found searching his home after obtaining a warrant on the heels of assault allegations from Williams’ bodyguard.
The troubled funnyman was booked into Hall County Jail on Tuesday afternoon after allegedly beating down one of his own bodyguards after the man refused to “engage in criminal activity as directed by Williams,” the Hall County sheriff said in a news release.
Jail records show that the 42-year-old Williams was booked on charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and terroristic threats.
Bodyguard Corey Dixon was taken to Williams house late last month and beaten with a baseball bat and choked by 24-year-old Tatiana Smith, the release says. Williams himself also threatened to kill the bodyguard during the attack.
Man, this ain’t funny.
A search warrant executed at Williams’ home on Lake Breeze Lane in Gainesville uncovered marijuana and several guns, according to authorities.
Smith was also arrested Tuesday, records show, on charges of aggravated assault, possession of marijuana and possession of Alprazolam.
Another woman, 40-year-old Lena Smith, has been arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana.
All three are being held in jail without bond. A committal hearing is set for 2 p.m. Wednesday, the sheriff’s office said.
On the same day as the alleged Feb. 28 attack at his home, Williams, along with a group of 15 people, allegedly robbed five women at gunpoint in Atlanta, attorney Loletha Hale told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
And the next day, Williams, whose real first name is Micah, was arrested in a different assault in Gainesville, Ga. In that case, the comedian is accused of punching a pool store employee who Williams claimed used the N-word during a disagreement.
Dammnnnnnnn. Katt Williams really does go hard in the streets!!! Except for when he got his face beat in at a Beanie Sigel show the other day. Minor details though.
Totally related observations: WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING KATT WILLIAMS? You’re rich, you’re famous, you’re funny. Why the hell you gotta go around jumping people and robbing people and selling drugs? Smoke all the drugs you want. But don’t sell the drugs. That’s stupid, man. Are the roles really coming in that slow right now? Feelin’ a little typecast or something and hurting for coin? C’mon Katt, you’re better than this. Like, you’re rich enough to pay other people to sell your drugs for you. Unless you’re not, and in that case, sorry for all that shitty advice.
But hey, at least we all know now. Katt Williams don’t talk about it, he be about it.
P.S. The UF weed supply chain probably just went KABOOM.
