Comedian Katt Williams arrested on battery charge in Georgia
GAINESVILLE - Comedian Katt Williams has been arrested on a battery charge in Georgia after a store employee told police that Williams punched him during an argument.
Gainesville police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook says officers responded to an assault call at a pool supply store around 11:30 a.m. Monday. Holbrook says officers found Williams outside "lying on the ground with his hands behind his back as though he was ready to go to jail."
Hall County sheriff's Deputy Nicole Bailes said in an email that Williams faces a misdemeanor battery charge and was being held on $5,000 bond. It wasn't clear what started the argument.
Janice Lee, a publicist for Williams, didn't immediately respond to phone and email messages.
Williams has starred in comedy specials and appeared in films, including "Friday After Next."
