Comedian Katt Williams' problems with the law continue to go strong this week after being stopped by police in California last night (July 8) over a taser investigation. #KattFight
Details of Williams' incident surfaced online early Wednesday (July 9).
Law enforcement sources tell us the guy started kicking a car driven by Katt's assistant ... who was following Katt while he rode a Can-Am Spyder. When Katt's security guard got out of the car ... we're told the stranger got aggressive, and the security guard zapped him with a taser. The guy then waved down Sheriff's deputies in the area and explained what had happened. Deputies tracked down Katt ... pulled him over and questioned him and the guard about the incident. (TMZ)
Despite the negative attention, an arrest was not made following the stop.
One of our photogs spoke to Katt on the side of PCH just a few moments after the incident, and his version jibes almost 100% with law enforcement. He did add that the guy claimed to be a lifeguard, and hurled the n-word during the altercation. Here's what's funny about this -- we initially got a tip that Rihanna had been pulled over on PCH. Turns out "Rihanna" was really just Katt's assistant ... and must be smoking hot. (TMZ)
A couple years ago, Williams unofficially announced his retirement from the comedy scene.
"I'm just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from stand-up," Williams said in an interview. "I'm kinda done. This is, yeah, I've already discussed it with my kids. I wasn't really gonna do it on a Seattle street, I was gonna go to Los Angeles and do it in the offices of ICM or Live Nation." (KOMO)
No stranger to law enforcement, Katt ran into some legal problems a few years ago in Seattle, Washington.
Something not so funny is going on with Katt Williams. The actor and stand-up comedian was arrested Sunday after allegedly getting into a bar fight with a family at the World Sports Grille in Seattle. When police arrived on the scene, Williams resisted arrest. The "First Sunday" actor was taken into custody at the King County jail shortly afterward on counts of harassment, assault and obstructing police, though he was released early Monday morning.
