Well-known comedian Katt Williams was on his way to perform live on Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” show when he allegedly got into a confrontation with his driver. Williams was arrested the following morning on October 6.
According to initial reports, the driver was supposed to take Williams to the Moda Center on the night of October 5th for his performance. Katt Williams was waiting with his pet dog near the Portland airport. The comedian and driver reportedly began arguing about transporting Williams’ pet dog. The driver of the car alleges that Katt Williams assaulted him before fleeing in another vehicle. The driver reported the incident to local police before being transported to a hospital for treatment.
Police confirmed that the driver had minor injuries to his face including cuts and visible swelling. Cops eventually caught up with Williams the following day, and he was immediately arrested under the suspicion of assaulting the car driver. He has been charged with fourth degree assault. He is currently being held in Portland jail on a $2,500 bail.
While being booked, Portland police discovered there was an active felony warrant regarding Williams in Atlanta, Georgia. On Monday, Williams will face a judge who will decide whether or not he will be extradited back to Georgia to face the felony charges.
This recent arrest comes after multiple interactions with law enforcement in the past. In April of 2017, prosecutors suggested that Williams needed to take anger management classes, and in 2016 he was given five years of probation for pleading no contest when he threatened a bodyguard.
