At 5′ 5″ Katt Williams is not afraid to fight you, but will bust a cap in your ass if need be. Katt Williams loves dogs. Katt Williams needs human resources training. Katt Williams should shop online.
These are just a few observations we’ve made after looking at the many incidents of lawlessness and wanton ratchetness that have led to the actor/comedian’s second retirement.
He first retired from stand-up comedy in 2009 but recently announced again that he was done with stand-up for good. Given that Katt has been in and out of drama dating back to 2006, it may just be a good idea for him to join Lil Wayne on that beach chair.
Once one of the most promising talents in comedy, here is a timeline of Katt Williams arrested development.
Katt Williams was arrested at LAX in terminal 5 for allegedly carrying a stolen concealed weapon in his carry-on luggage. He spent three days in L.A. county Jail.
Katt was arrested for weapons possession in NYC before a show at Carnegie Hall. After posting $25K bond he made the show and joked about it on stage. The charges were later dismissed.
Was arrested in Georgia and charged with burglary and criminal trespass after an employee of movie producer Barry Hankerson reported that Williams stole jewelry from the house. Williams was released on $41, 150 bond and his lawyers insisted he did nothing wrong.
Arrested again in Georgia in a parking lot of a local Walmart after an incident involving another group of people.He was arrested and a 911 call was made claiming that he had a shotgun but that was also proven untrue. This was the first of several more incidents to take place at a major retail chain.
Katt’s former assistant Jacqueline Gutierrez filed a complaint that she had not been paid for the 10 months she spent on the road with the comedian.
Allegedly punched record producer Merion Powers at a Four Seasons Hotel over an unpaid debt. This was the first of two reported incidents with Williams.
Sued for $8,900 by Extreme Fence Co. after installing an electric motorized gate and 106 feet of wrought iron fence at his California home and not being paid.
In a second clash with Merion Powers, Katt allegedly sicked attack dog on the producers pet dog and nearly killed it. Powers was suing Katt for unpaid studio time and alleged that Katt tried to intimidate him with his dog. A judge ordered Williams to pay $577, 929.
Katt Williams can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble these days.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, recording studio owner Marion Joseph Powers has filed a lawsuit against Katt claiming that the comedian instructed his dog to bite his while he recorded comedy in his studio.
Court documents claim that Williams and his bodyguards came to Powers’ studio in October. Williams brought along his dog and allegedly gave it an “attack signal” instructing it to bite the other man’s animal, leaving it with injuries.
Powers claims when the two decided to meet in a hotel in November to discuss the incident he was bullied into not pressing charges by Williams. He says he was forced to sit in a chair by Williams, his bodyguards and the dog he says was “snarling” in front of him.
He also says that Katt threatened to kill him and held him against his will.
He’s asking for $1 million in damages for assault, damage to property, internal infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and battery.
The incident is believed to have taken place the same day he was interviewed by local news for being kicked out Atlanta’s Four Seasons Hotel.
Williams has yet to release a statement on the allegations.
In one of his more bizarre run-ins, Williams was charged with intimidating a witness after a man doing tractor work at a Palmdale home where Katt was staying claimed three women attacked him with rocks and dirt clods and was prevented from leaving the premises when his wife came to rescue him. The charges were later dropped.
In late June of 2011 Williams tour bus pulled into a Jack-In-The-Box restaurant in Arizona and one of his bodyguards was bitten by a retired police dog named Lester. The bodyguard shot the dog and killed it in retaliation. The family arrived on the scene in tears and Williams offered an 8 week old Mastiff puppy as an act of contrition. The security guard was fired and the family posed for pictures with Katt.
While at a Young Jeezy concert in Arizona (August 25) at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, Katt Williams was captured on video fighting with a club promoter.
In the second incident at a major retail chain, Katt was questioned by Ohio police over an alleged shoplifting incident at Best Buy. He was not arrested.
Katt’s former nanny Crystal McGhee was temporarily awarded custody of his 8-year-old adopted daughter, Leanne when he failed to appear in court. He eventually regained custody of the child when it was established that McGhee had no parental rights.
Katt was arrested by the LAPD for flashing a gun outside of The Supperclub. It was later revealed that the altercation was with Faizon Love, who says Katt pulled a gun on him over a $50,000 debt, but had the pistol removed by one of his boys. Katt later called him a “snitch.”
Melissa Ishage filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court claiming Katt attacked her, punched her and caused her “serious and permanent injuries.”
Arrested and released for battery at an Oakland establishment, then threatened to cancel a show in that town. Williams said he was outnumbered four to one in the fight. Williams did perform–for about 10 minutes–before he confronted a heckler, took his clothes off and left. He was then sued in a class action lawsuit for non performance.
Katt Williams led police on a crazy chase through the streets of Sacramento while riding on a 3-wheeled motorcycle.
After the three-wheeled chase Williams slapped a Target employee, Forrest Liebenberg. The incident was captured by a surveillance camera and the employee was later fired for unrelated reasons.
In his most recent incident Katt Williams got into a bar fight in Seattle brandishing a pool cue and allegedly throwing a rock at a car. He was bailed out by Suge Knight, who is his tour manager.
19 incidents in six years, including three fights, two injured dogs and one custody battle. Here is to hoping Katt Williams gets it together.
