Comedian Katt Williams is making headlines again after reports alleged that Williams slapped a Target employee in the face before storming out of the store.
Local reports stated that Williams was removed by police from the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Sacramento.
Later Williams was seen at a Target taking pictures with fans after customers in the store recognized him. All seemed to be well until surveillance video apparently from the Target store showed Williams hitting a Target employee in the face. It is still unclear what sparked the assault, but police are still investigating.
A video of the confrontation was posted on YouTube and has already attracted a great deal of attention.
"He just got slapped," the video-taker says.
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.
"Katt Williams is leaving. He's leaving in a cart," the video-taker says.
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 preforming 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.
The suit was filed Nov. 21 in Alameda County and is seeking unspecified damages for what was described as "Katt Williams's non-performance," according to TMZ.
"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.
