Hollywood actor Katt Williams is making headlines today (July 15) after being accused of assaulting a California man with help from a bodyguard.
Details of the graphic incident have started to make its rounds across the Internet.
Katt was tooling around near LAX Tuesday … when a guy named Glen Jackson pulled alongside and tried to snap a cell phone pic. Jackson says it triggered a volcanic reaction from Katt. Katt and a bodyguard allegedly got out of the car, tried grabbing Jackson’s phone, then pepper sprayed him. Jackson says he stumbled out of the car, choking from the fumes, when Katt rolled his Rolls smack into his leg … then doused him in pepper spray again before driving off. (TMZ)
Local law enforcement has started to investigate the alleged crime.
Inglewood police are investigating a possible assault with a deadly weapon — the Rolls. They’d like a chit chat with Katt and the bodyguard. It’s the 4th violent confrontation with Katt in 2 weeks … two altercations on PCH … and an alleged gun attack at an L.A. comedy club. (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.
