NEWSFLASH! Comedian Katt Williams is once again behind bars in Hall County.
The frequently arrested funnyman was charged Wednesday (March 30) with disorderly conduct after video of him sucker-punching a Georgia teen went viral last week.
Seventeen-year-old Luke Wash, Williams’ adversary in the post-soccer game skirmish, was also arrest and reportedly has been charged as an adult.
More details about Katt’s latest legal situation below…
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Katt Williams, real name Micah Sierra Williams, is currently being held without bond in a Hall Couty jail.
Though a report was never formally filed, witnesses’ accounts and a video of the scuffle — which you can watch HERE — reportedly prompted authorities in the North Georgia town to pursue the charges.
Williams’ attorney, Drew Findling, said Katt had been doing community service at a subsidized housing complex in Gainesville when the incident occurred.
The troubled comic explained during a recent standup set that he’d socked Wash in the March 22 showdown to teach him the consequences of trash talk.
“That’s what happens when you say slick s–t to grown a– men,” he told a crowd at Barclays Center Friday.
After reviewing the situation, a warrant was issued for both parties.
Officers showed up at Katt’s Gainesville home and arrested him yesterday.
Since Williams is also facing charges for threatening his bodyguard’s life in early March and for fighting with a story employee in February, he may face additional charges for violating his conditional bond in that matter.
Katt is currently being held in the Hall County Jail without bond. He is scheduled to face a judge later today.
