Comedian Katt Williams has been released from jail following his arrest for an altercation at a Seattle bar in what is the most recent development in a string of recent bizarre events.
Reports indicate that Williams was at the World Sports Grille bar in Seattle and began to argue with another person at the bar. When the manager approached Williams, police revealed that the unhinged comedian threatened him with a pool cue while refusing to leave.
He is also alleged to have thrown a lit cigarette into a woman's face and threw a rock at the same woman's car as she tried to leave.
Police say Williams struggled with officers, who arrested and jailed him for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction. He was released from King County Jail early Monday. An attempt by The Associated Press to reach Williams for comment was not immediately successful.
This incident is just the latest in a string of rash events involving Williams. Last week, Williams was seen on video hitting a Target employee in the face in Sacramento; police are currently investigating.
Video of the confrontation was posted on YouTube and has already attracted a great deal of attention.
The store employee, who was unhurt, is seen calling police on his cell phone, and Williams gets on a store cart and begins rolling away.
Williams has made the wrong sort of headlines lately, causing some reports to speculate that he is having some kind of breakdown.
The comedian was recently sued after he walked off stage after only a few minutes from a show he was performing in. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of those who paid for a good time and ended up watching a short "non-performance."
Williams and promoter Live Nation were named in the class action lawsuit, which was filed by Brian Herline on behalf of all who bought tickets and went to the show on Nov. 16, according to TMZ.
The lawsuit claims Williams "confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members," before ending the show after a few minutes, court documents showed.
"Williams failed to perform … The audience members deserve their money back. Therefore, Plaintiff brings this action on behalf of himself individually and on behalf of all others who paid money for a show and got nothing but Katt Williams's non-performance," the lawsuit read.
