Wow. It looks like Katt Williams might actually get away with punching a 7th grader in the face. The 42-year-old was caught on video, sucker-punching the teen, but if the victim doesn’t come forward and press charges, police say there’s not much they can do. Get all the details here!
We can’t believe it, but the Gainseville, Georgia Police Department is having trouble going after Katt Williams, 42, for punching a teen in the face because they have “not had any incidents reported” to them. Even though the entire scuffle was caught on video, authorities need the victim to come forward before they continue with the investigation.
In a statement provided to HollywoodLife.com, the Gainesville, Georgia Police Department said: “We’re currently aware of the video, however, we have not had any incidents reported to us. We are currently looking into the issue, however, without a victim coming forward, it does somewhat hinder the investigation.”
“It’s our belief the incident occurred at Melrose Apartments, a government subsidized building for low-income families in Gainesville, Ga. We have not spoken to Mr. Williams nor the alleged victim,” they added.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Katt took a brutal swing at a teenager, and then the kid retaliated and knocked the comedian to the ground. Plus, it was all caught on video, so we assumed he’d get in big trouble. After all, he’s currently out on bail for multiple assault charges. And he’s had quite a few run-ins with the law as of late. He was arrested on March 8 when police allegedly found marijuana and guns in his home after he reportedly beat up his bodyguards. And that arrest came after Katt was accused of pulling a gun on five women.
Perhaps the police have not had any incidents reported because new details show that Katt was actually set-up by the young man.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should the police still press charges, even if the victim doesn’t come forward? Tell us below!
