(Gossip-Grind) Katt Williams Arrested On Battery Charge In Georgia:
When will he learn? Comedian Katt Williams has found himself locked up behind bars once again. Williams was arrested Monday on a battery charge in Georgia after he allegedly punched a store employee during an argument.
Gainesville police officers responded to an assault call at a pool supply store around 11:30 a.m. and found Williams outside “lying on the ground with his hands behind his back as though he was ready to go to jail,” Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said.
A store employee told officers Williams, who was in the store with two women, began arguing with the employee and threw a pair of goggles at him, Holbrook said. Williams then went behind the counter and punched the employee at least once, Holbrook said.
The cause of the argument wasn’t immediately clear. When officers tried to question Williams, he told them to ask the store employee what happened, Holbrook said.
Hall County sheriff’s Deputy Nicole Bailes said in an email that Williams faces a misdemeanor battery charge and was being held on $5,000 bond. Online jail records show Williams was booked into jail at 1:34 p.m. (ABC)
William caused quite a bit of controversy over the weekend with his comments about fellow comedian Kevin Hart being an industry “puppet” during his stand-up show in Atlanta.
Williams had this to say about Hart:
I’ve already proven that if the best they got in comedy is Kevin Hart then…[No] don’t boo a black man working hard, baby. Even if that n*gga’s a puppet, it’s not his fault. We don’t get mad.
Just because I’m better than some black dudes doesn’t mean I’m better than no black dudes. I’m saying if you want to be mad at Kermit The Frog, don’t be mad at Kermit The Frog. Be mad at Jim Henson. Don’t say, ‘F*ck Donald Duck” when you really mean, ‘F*ck Walt Disney.’
I don’t care about nothing that happens to Kevin, I just wish him the best. I just know that that’s somebody’s hand stuck up that baby, you understand. Oh, we’re a puppet show, boo boo. Please believe it. You’re looking at the only n*gg* that ain’t.
