TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Comedian Katt Williams enjoys the attention he gets from his fans. Now it seems like he’s enjoying the attention he’s getting from the law.
Williams, whose given name is Micah Sierra Williams, was taken into custody Friday, around 8:30 p.m., after the LA County Department of Children and Family Services did a welfare check at his home, said Officer Norma Eisenman. Authorities found more than one firearm, one of which had been reported stolen.
The DCFS did not specify how many children lived at the home or whether they were removed.
Williams has been arrested multiple times in recent months, according to media reports.
In November, he was accused of hitting a man on the head with a bottle during a fight in Oakland.
Earlier this month, Williams, 41, was arrested near Sacramento on a felony warrant that allegedly led California’s state police on a wild chase through the streets of Sacramento, Calif., after riding his three-wheeled motorbike on the sidewalk.
Moments after the chase, TMZ reports that Williams was reported arguing with a Target employee before he hit him. Williams is said to have walked in Target and “slapped” an employee.
Williams had also been accused of assaulting a man at a comedy show.
