Comedian is expected to turn himself in to address charges of disorderly conduct, police say
There is yet even more legal trouble for Katt Williams.
Comedian/trouble magnet Williams has been charged with disorderly conduct, after fighting with — and losing to — a teenager, a representative for the Gainesville, Georgia, police told TheWrap on Monday.
Luke Wash, Williams’ 17-year-old adversary in the skirmish, has also been charged.
In a video that made the social-media rounds last week, Williams can be seen talking to Wash before suddenly striking him in the face.
Unfortunately for Williams, Wash quickly took him down and put the comedian in a choke hold.
During a Friday performance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Williams, 44, told the audience that he was playing a friendly soccer game with a group of kids when Wash threw some trash talk in the comedian’s direction.
“I said, ‘Listen, you know I’m in trouble with the motherf-king law. You see all these people recording?” Williams said. “But just understand if I can take your ass around this motherf-king corner, I’ll explain to you that you don’t talk to grown ni–as like that.”
Williams went on to say that he was attempting to teach Wash a “lesson.”
Williams is expected to turn himself in, the police representative said.
