Katt Williams Arrested For Child Endangerment
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Dec 29, 2012 - 10:44:39 PM

WOODLAND HILLS—Comedian Katt Williams was arrested on Friday, December 28 at his Woodland Hills home due to suspicion of child endangerment and possession of a stolen firearm.

Williams, 39, was arrested at approximately 8:30 p.m. after a welfare check was done at his home made by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. Authorities stated that more than one firearm was found one of which had been reported stolen. Additional reports indicate there were illegal drugs found at Williams' home by police.

The comedian was held at the LAPD's Valley Jail in Van Nuys with a bail set at $100,000 and was released on Friday night. Authorities placed Williams' four kids in protective custody and the case will allegedly go to court next week for possible felony child endangerment charges.

In the past few months, Williams has had a number of run-ins with the law.  In November, he was accused of hitting a man on the head with a bottle during a fight in Oakland. He was arrested again in December near Sacramento on a felony warrant that alleged he led police on chase while he was riding a three-wheeled motorcycle and nearly hitting pedestrians.

Recent reports have also indicated that Williams was notified that the IRS issued tax liens against him for over $4 million. The IRS states that Williams owes the federal government $3.2 in taxes from 2008 and $829,352 from 2009.

Hours after Williams was released from jail, footage was released of the comedian caught up in a club fight with Suge Knight on Saturday, December 29. The fight occurred outside of Club Eden with Knight involved in the brawl while Williams attempted to avoid the commotion by walking behind a dumpster. Knight continued to fight as Williams made his way to a black SUV while being chased by someone, but he managed to get away. Soon after, Knight leaves the scene in a white SUV and drives off nearly hitting multiple people.
