Uh oh! Katt Williams may have thought he got off scott-free when a video of him fighting a teenager went viral, but now the law is coming for him. Arrest warrants have surprisingly been filed for both Katt and the kid he fought. Here’s the scoop.
Katt Williams, 42, is in big trouble following his fight with a 17-year-old boy named Luke Walsh in Gainesville, Georgia. Reports say two arrest warrants were issued against him on Mar. 28 because he violated his probation by punching the teen. He’s also being charged with disorderly conduct. Plus, a warrant is out for Luke because 17-year-olds are charged as adults in Florida. We have all the details, here.
Katt may have screwed himself over royally with his viral fight. TMZ reports that Katt was still on a conditional bond, and he violated that by using foul language in front of minors and by hitting someone. He was originally in trouble for assaulting one of his bodyguards.
Katt’s lawyer was reportedly reached out to by law enforcement in an attempt to get the comedian to turn himself in. However if he refuses to go quietly, they’re totally ready to go out and grab him themselves. Katt is being charged with disorderly conduct, according to PEOPLE. Interestingly, the kid he fought is also in trouble. Luke has been charged with disorderly conduct because 17-year-olds are charged as adults in Georgia, where the fight occurred.
The shocking video shows Katt sucker punching the teenage wrestler, but an extended video that came out later showed that he was actually in town handing out money and playing soccer with children, until he was coerced into a fight. Perhaps that video will help his case in court and prevent him from going to jail.
“We hope that he will turn himself in, and we expect him to, but he is not in our custody yet,” Sgt. Kevin Holbrook told PEOPLE.
