Meet Luke Wash, the 17 year-old Gainesville, GA student who issued a swift ‘smack down’ on comedian Katt Williams earlier this week.
A clip of the fight made Katt an instant trending topic, but it was soon revealed that he’d fought a teen during a neighborhood soccer game.
Wash was the teen in the video and apparently Katt Williams got tossed around like a rag doll by a bona fide high school wrestler!
More details + watch recent interviews from the teen involved in the altercation below…
The teenager, who is known Luke Wash, per the New York Daily News), was once a wrestler for Gainesville High. and Luke used his trained skills on the mat after Katt sucker punched him in the face earlier this week.
Katt ultimately got his butt kicked by the teen, which certainly didn’t earn the troubled comedian any respect from social media, which tore into Katt for getting twisted up by teen.
Though it seems Katt may actually be the innocent one in this entire debacle, Luke claims that the comedian provoked him into the brawl and says Katt told him to throw the first punch.
VIDEO: Teen Who Fought Katt Williams Speaks
Eyewitnesses to the fight state that Wash “purposely provoked Katt Williams into the fight. He told his friends way in advance that he was going to talk smack and not back down until Katt hit him.”
Who started what may be a moot point when law enforcement gets involved in the situation, and reports are that Katt might end up back in jail over it!
Katt’s out on bail and this little brawl might be in violation of his agreement. The police are reportedly conducting a criminal investigation, but the Gainesville Police Department said that their efforts have been “somewhat hinder[ed]” because Luke hasn’t gone to the police.
“We have not spoken to Mr. Williams nor the alleged victim.”
Just FYI… Wash recently told CBSNews that he’s not pressing charges.
“If he hit me, I could have turned the other cheek but I didn’t,” said Wash. “I don’t feel bad about it. He hit me and I did what I did.”
Wash says there’s no hard feelings and he still respects Williams as an entertainer. He added that he will not press charges.
