Troubled comedian Katt Williams is once again gaining some unwanted attention as new footage of him attacking a man at one of his recent Seattle shows has surfaced online.
In the footage, Williams is shown using his microphone as a weapon in retaliation of an audience member recording his performance.
Katt was performing at the Paramount Theater in Seattle last Friday at the time — and judging from the video, Katt was upset because the victim was recording his show. Katt subsequently addressed the audience saying, “It could happen to you. Record me and see what happens to you. Go home and get your raggedy pistol and bring it back. I already got mine.” (TMZ)
Since this all went down, the victim has reportedly filed a hefty lawsuit against Williams.
The victim — a man named Carlos Casto-Lino — has since filed a $250,000 lawsuit against Katt and the theater … claiming Katt gave him a concussion and left him with contusions on his head. Calls to Katt’s camp weren’t returned — but based on his recent string of crazy behavior, we’re guessing he gives zero craps about anything. (TMZ)
Last month, Katt caught attention after striking a now-former Target employee.
After allegedly leading police on a wild goose chase through the streets of Sacramento, Calif., comedian Katt Williams reportedly walked into a Target and “slapped” an employee in the face. In footage acquired by TMZ, Williams can be seen arguing with the Target employee before he hits him. The employee is said to have then pulled out his phone to call the cops. (Huffington Post)
Prior to his management denying the claim, Williams announced his retirement from stand-up comedy last weekend.
“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)
