On Monday, February 29, comedian and actor Katt Williams was arrested at a pool supply store in Gainesville, GA. The “Scary Movie” star got into an argument with a sales clerk then he threw a pair of goggles at him as well as punched him in the face.
Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said that when police arrived, the 44-year-old was “lying on the ground with his hands behind his back as though he was ready to go to jail.”
The actual cause of the altercation is unclear. When police asked Katt what happened, he reportedly told officers to ask the sales clerk.
Williams was detained and charged with misdemeanor battery. He’s currently out on $5,000 bail.
Prior to this latest incident, Katt was arrested in 2014 with infamous music executive Suge Knight. The pair were charged with felony robbery for stealing the camera of a Beverly Hills photographer, Leslie Redden.
Katt and Suge have yet to stand trial in that case but according to TMZ, they could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.
The Cincinnati, Ohio native has one biological son named Micah and seven adoptive children. With the pool supply store incident, Katt has been arrested at least ten times in the past ten years.
