Katt Williams doesn’t stay on the straight and narrow for too long.
The comedian seemed to be getting himself together after being arrested multiple times throughout 2012 and making headlines for slapping a Target employee.
It appears he had us fooled though, because most recently, the 40-year-old celebrity is under investigation for allegedly pulling a gun on a patron while arguing with him at a comedy show.
The NY Daily News reports:
Williams, 40, was at the Comedy Store on the legendary Sunset Strip around 2 a.m. Wednesday when he allegedly “brandished” the weapon during a verbal dispute, police confirmed to the Daily News. “He’s being investigated, preliminarily, for threatening someone with a weapon,” Sgt. Dave Valentine with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
The site continues:
“(Williams) wasn’t performing. He was just there, but he was gone when we arrived,” Sgt. Valentine said. “The victim filed a report. Obviously we’d like to hear Mr. Williams’ side of the story.” Unidentified eyewitnesses told TMZ.com that Williams was inside the club when the alleged victim started baiting the “Norbit” and “First Sunday” star with comments about his height and race. “We’re not sure if it was a heckler,” Sgt. Valentine said Wednesday, confirming that deputies took the call seriously and raced to the scene, some with weapons drawn. “If we get a call of a man with a gun, we’re sending everyone we have,” he said.
Over the years, Katt has been arrested for child endangerment, fights, outstanding warrants, and more. Could he have escalated things with a weapon? It doesn’t sound too farfetched…
Stay tuned for updates.
