Katt Williams arrested for alleged battery

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Katt Williams, a comedian, was arrested Wednesday evening in Oakland, California.

TMZ reports that funnyman Williams was arrested in conjunction with a fight which took place at Kimball’s Carnival East in the early Thursday hours.

According to the report, details surrounding the case are unclear. What is clear, however, is that Williams was brought in for questioning and currently remains in custody. The 39-year-old comedian has had a troubled past.

In October, Williams was detained after he allegedly pulled a gun on Couple’s Retreat actor Faizon Love. The altercation was allegedly over Love owing him $50,000. Shortly after the gun incident, it was reported that Williams would take on a role in Scary Movie 5, costarring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.

Williams also had a warrant out for his arrest in Atlanta in 2010 for alleged battery at a 4 Seasons Hotel as well as arrested in 2008 on gun charges when police spotted three guns in lying inside of his vehicle.
