Prosecutors say evidence proves that the Richmond police signed off on community service hours that Brown claimed to have completed on days where he was globetrotting. For example, on March 15th Brown’s paperwork claims that he picked up trash between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm; however Homeland Security documents reveal that Brown caught a flight to Cancun at 4 pm that day. The evidence doesn’t look good for Brown or Norwood. Chris is set to appear back in court April 5th where the Los Angeles D.A. is motioning to throw out all of his Virginia hours and have him redo them in Los Angeles. What do you make of this?

He has offered leadership that has brought us a little bit further in our endeavors to improve public safety. In many ways the Richmond Police Department and the city is better off because of his dedication. We’ve reached, however, a mutual agreement, at this time, that his time as Richmond police chief has come to an end. We certainly wish Chief Norwood much luck in his endeavors going forward,” announced Mayor Dwight Jones.
The saga continues… On Wednesday, we reported that Katt Williams announced his retirement from stand-up comedy on a Seattle street to a local news anchor after being ejected from the hotel he was staying in. It seems that a mere 2 days later, the comedian has changed his mind or maybe his management team has changed it for him. TMZ is reporting that Katt’s managers released a statement that Katt actually is not retiring and provided an explanation behind Katt’s bizarre retirement.
“Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour … Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama.The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward.
Katt’s retirement was the only thing that went down during his visit to Seattle. If you recall, he was also arrested for his involvement in a bar fight where he threatened the bars owner and patrons with a pool cue and tossed a cigarette at a woman. As a result of the incident, Katt was charged with two counts of fourth degree misdemeanor assaults; however according to the Daily News, the comedian didn’t show up to his court hearing yesterday in relation to the assaults.
Katt’s attorney, Thomas McAllister, told the judge that his client was under the impression that he did not have to appear in court at the hearing. The hearing has been rescheduled for next week.
It is very evident that Katt’s mental and emotional health is plummeting, but I wonder when the people around him are going to say enough is enough and get him some help.
Do you think Katt really wanted to retire, but his management isn’t allowing him to?
