Days after comedian Katt Williams reportedly got detained by police over a gun investigation, actor Faizon Love has stepped up to claim the funnyman pulled the weapon out on him.
According to the former Friday star, the incident took place over a heated argument.
Faizon Love tells TMZ … Katt Williams PULLED A GUN ON HIM during a heated argument outside a Hollywood nightclub Tuesday night … shortly before Katt was cuffed by cops and taken to the station. Love tells us … he was parking his car near Supperclub, when he saw Katt … and they got into it over a $50,000 debt Katt allegedly owes him. Love says, “Once the argument escalated, Katt went to his car to go get his gun to pull it out on me.” “Fortunately, one of my homeboys who was there took the gun out of Katt’s hands.” (TMZ)
Despite the seriousness, Love said Williams did not have a loaded gun.
Faizon continues, “Come to find out the gun he pulled out on me was not even loaded. My homeboy gave it back to him … then we went in the club.” Minutes later, Williams was arrested for a possible gun violation … but Love insists he is NOT the person who called the cops. “I am just extremely upset that his punk ass would pull a gun out on me and even play with me like that,” Love says … adding, “He better chill his ass out.” Katt was released from custody that night. After being released, Williams told us he did nothing wrong. As for Faizon’s allegations — we reached out to Katt … so far no response. (TMZ)
Reports of Williams getting taken into police custody landed online Wednesday (October 17).
Reportedly, police were summoned when someone at the Supper Club called in a complaint about a patron brandishing a gun. When police officers arrived at the club, all fingers pointed to Williams as the possible suspect who had been waving a gun around. When officers searched Williams, they did not discover a weapon on him but did discover one his vehicle. (News One)
Katt is known for making crime-related headlines over weapons in the past.
This isn’t the first time the funnyman has gotten into gun trouble. In November 2006, he was busted at LAX after a pistol was found in his briefcase. He was subsequently sentenced to three years’ probation after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed firearm. Then there was his arrest in New York in November 2008 when officers found three handguns in his car. Those charges were dropped , however, for lack of evidence, and Williams’ lawyer at the time said the guns were registered to his bodyguard. (E! Online)
