Add another mug shot to Katt Williams’ collection! The comedian has officially been arrested for punching a teenager in the face during a nasty brawl March 22 that was all caught on tape!
Uh oh! Katt Williams‘ brushes with the law keep on coming, as the 42-year-old comedian been taken into custody by Gainesville, GA police for his epic fight against a 17-year-old following a soccer match. The video – where Katt got totally owned by the teen – went completely viral and after an investigation, police are now charging both the star AND the teenager! Keep reading to see how much trouble Katt is in.
An arrest warrant was issued for Katt on March 28, but he failed to turn himself in so police showed up at Katt’s front door around 2:30pm March 30 and took the comedian into custody. Katt’s going to be spending the night behind bars as he’s being held without bail until he can go before a judge. Katt looked super sad in his mug shot, obviously feeling really down about his latest legal problems. In some of his prior mug shots – oh, there are lots of them – he’d been pictured actually smiling, but this time that clearly wasn’t the case.
Katt is being charged with disorderly conduct and a probation violating after cops got a good hard look at a video where he got into a brawl with 17-year-old Luke Wash, who despite his age is reportedly in seventh grade. Luke followed Katt around after a friendly soccer game and kept getting in Katt’s face over and over again until the funny man completely lost it and took a swing at him. The bad news for Katt, the kid turned out to have mad fighting skills and knew how to wrestle, pinning him helplessly down on the ground.
Katt went on a rant about the fight March 25 during a comedy appearance at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center. “I’m just thinking something’s wrong, because why would a kid be trying to f**k with me?” Katt said, before claiming that he actually won the fight.
“Now, if you watched that video and really think that I was getting choked out by a strong teenager, well why don’t you catch me out when I’m in public, and why don’t you put your little fragile ass around my neck and try to choke me out,” Katt said. “I’m Semper Fi til I die, Marine Corps, bitch! I passed boot camp at 16. I don’t give a f**k about anything.” Yikes Katt! It turns out this fight was nothing to joke about.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Katt’s arrest? Does he deserve to be in jail after being provoked into a fight?
