Katt Williams was arrested on Wednesday night in Atlanta after an altercation at a restaurant, TheWrap has learned.
“Mr. Williams was taken into custody at our agency last night as a result of a fight at a restaurant,” Cliff Chandler, Atlanta East Point Police Department’s public information officer told TheWrap.
“The arrest took place at around 11:15 p.m. … apparently some members of his family had taken some seats at [Spondivits] restaurant that had belonged to another family. An argument began, and Williams arrived and the situation escalated, there was arguing with the manager and Williams subsequently — we’re alleging — struck the manager in the face with a salt shaker.”
According to Chandler, multiple witnesses corroborated the manager’s account. When law enforcement officials arrived, “There was bleeding from the lip and Williams had fled to a nearby Waffle House restaurant.”
After William was taken into custody, the comedian/actor was charged with one count of battery, but has since posted bond.
In March, Williams got into a physical altercation with a boy who was reportedly a seventh grader, with the whole incident caught on video. A week before that, he was slapped with a lawsuit by a woman who claims she received a severe beatdown while visiting his home. In February, Williams was taken into custody once again after allegedly punching a pool supply store employee in Gainesville, Georgia.
The restaurant was not able to comment on the incident. Representatives for Williams have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
