Comedian Katt Williams Arrested, Questioned on Assault with a Bottle
Comedian Katt Williams is making more headlines for his behavior than his punch lines of late.
The star of "Norbit" and "First Sunday" got arrested last night on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
An 18-year-old Berkeley man was hit in the head with a bottle and taken to a hospital after the incident, which happened about 8 p.m. in a tour vehicle police said was parked at the Courtyard Marriott, 988 Broadway.
Police were first called about a man bleeding from the head in the 900 block of Broadway. The man told police what had happened and police went looking for Williams. He was not in the vehicle but officers found him about a half-hour later near a nightclub in the 200 block of Washington Street. Police said he was cooperative when he was taken into custody....
Williams, 41, a comedian, actor and rapper, was sued earlier this month by an assistant who maintains he hit her in October and caused permanent injuries.
Williams' affinity for finding trouble has spread to the stand-up stage. He appeared at the Wells Fargo Theatre in Denver Nov. 1 and got into an ugly exchange with a heckler. Williams did more than yell back at the disgruntled ticket holder. He berated the city of Denver, dropped some pretty foul language and left the stage early.
