Katt Williams may not be working as much, but he’s sure been keeping busy.
Here’s the video of him allegedly smacking a Target employee upside the head and proceeding to “escape” via one of those electronic scooters.
Oh, and he’s been getting arrested, too.
ABC News reports:
Stand-up comedian and actor Katt Williams said he was ordered to leave a Seattle hotel late Monday, hours after he was released from jail following a dispute at a bar.
Williams was ordered to leave a Courtyard Marriott after an unspecified incident that involved a police presence, Seattlepi.com reported.
Williams didn’t say why he was ejected, and neither police nor a hotel manager immediately returned calls from the Associated Press. Attempts to reach Williams were not immediately successful.
Williams was released from jail early Monday after police say he argued with a patron at a bar, menaced the manager with a pool cue and refused to leave World Sports Grille on Sunday. He was also accused of flicking a cigarette into a woman’s face through a car window and throwing a rock at the vehicle.
Police say Williams struggled with officers who arrested him and jailed him for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction.
And now following his release he’s announced that he’s essentially done with stand-up.
He told a photographer for Seattle TV station KOMO on Monday night: "I’m just going to go ahead and announce my retirement from stand-up. "I’m kinda done."
I don’t want to make fun of the mentally ill – at least not too much anyway – but clearly Katt is going through something. Something that looks like it requires a psychiatrist, a pharmacist, and probably a nice amount of prayer.
