When Kat Williams makes headlines two times in one week it’s usually not good and this time is no different. Just Sunday we reported that the comedian was being sued for $5 million dollars by his female assistant, Melissa Ishage, for punching her in the face and causing permanent damage. BTW, how do you get so angry that you physically assault one of your employees and a woman no less? Anyway, it looks like Katt’s short temper has landed him in hot water again.
TMZ is reporting that last night the troubled comedian was picked up by police in Oakland, California for questioning stemming from a physical altercation. The San Francisco Gate is reporting that the altercation involved an 18-year-old Berkley teen.
Williams was arrested on suspicion of assault after he hit a man in the head with a bottle outside a downtown Oakland Hotel, police said Thursday.
Williams, 41, attacked the man aboard a tour bus parked outside the Courtyard Marriott at 988 Broadway shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said. The victim, whose name wasn’t released, suffered a laceration to his head, police said.
Officers found Williams several blocks away and arrested him.
Specifics surrounding what caused the incident are still unknown, but Katt was not released after questioning.
Let us not forget that just one month ago, Katt was accused of pulling out a gun on comedian Faizon Love in front of the Supper Club in Hollywood, California and arrested in Los Angeles. Katt never denied the claims, but proceeded to refer to Love as a “snitch” and a “bald-faced rat” for going around telling “street business” to TMZ reps.
A warrant was also issued for him by Atlanta Police for an additional battery charge in relation to an altercation that occurred back in 2010.
I’m not sure what Katt’s deal is but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with seeking professional help and he needs to know that. It seems that he has anger issues only prayer and a licensed therapist with a whole lot of patience can work out. A few self-control exercises probably wouldn’t hurt either.
