Katt Williams Arrested

This comedian’s life is not so funny anymore. Katt Williams was arrested on Friday Dec. 28 for allegedly endangering his four children.

Katt Williams was reportedly picked up by police at his Woodland Hills home in California on Friday Dec. 28 for allegedly endangering his children. Four guns and illegal drugs were found in his home by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.

During the arrest, various items were seized from the house, according to a report by TMZ.

The arrest occurred at 8:30 AM, right around the time it was learned that the IRS filed a $4 million tax lien against the Friday After Next star on Dec. 18.

Katt, 39, was held at LAPD’s Valley Jail in Van Nuys on $100,000 bail. Authorities have places his children in protective custody.

Upon Katt’s exit from jail, he asked TMZ, “How do you keep kids safe without guns?”

Williams told TMZ the guns were secured in a locked box, adding, “If the police come in and raid my place and break into my gun boxes, you’re gonna find guns! I’m not in a gang, what difference does it make?”

He also denied having illegal drugs in his house, but admitted to having weed. “Weed is not a drug,” he said.

This case will allegedly be sent to the D.A. next week for possible felony child endangerment charges.

Over the last few months, Katt has had run-ins with the law over parking infraction, driving issue, bar fight, hotel disturbance and gun violation.

2012 was not a good year for the comedic actor. Hopefully 2013 will serve as a fresh start for Katt.

How do YOU feel, HollywoodLifers? What punishment does Katt deserve?

Funny man Katt Williams is not laughing while behind bars for child endangerment. Williams, standup comedian and movie alum, is facing charges for allegedly having numerous guns and illegal drugs in his home, creating a safety hazard for his four minor children. According to reports, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services determined that the guns and drugs found created an unsafe environment and Williams were arrested after various items were seized. Williams continued to be held on $100,000.00 bond at the time of the story and his children were being held in protective custody. The Los Angeles District Attorney is still determining whether the child endangerment charges will be elevated to felonies.

If Katt Williams had guns out where his children could get to them then he is guilty. But if the guns were locked up then he is not guilty. Now the drugs is another story. Was it just pot or something else. Let’s see what the facts are before jumping to conclusions.

the government should lock themselves up, the army has nukes, guns, helicopters, police officers have guns but they’re allowed to have children in the same house………USA is a nation of hypocrites and tyrants
