Comedian Katt Williams just can seem to stay away from legal trouble as the actor has just been named in another lawsuit- this time by a used car salesman.
Reports indicated that a Los Angeles used car salesman identified as Khosrow Gharib sold Williams a used 2002 Ford Expedition SUV on Oct. 30, but Williams has yet to completely pay for the vehicle.
After repeated attempts to get Williams to pay up, Gharib decided legal action was the only option left, and filed suit against Williams for $7,500, the stated value of the Expedition.
This is the most recent legal trouble that has plagued Williams in the past few months after several high profile incidents made national headlines. Williams was part of a high speed chase, he assaulted a Target store employee and threatened fans at a comedy show.
On Jan. 8, Williams was arrested at his Los Angeles home after failing to appear in court for his part in being involved in a police chase in Sacramento, Calif. An arrest warrant was issued and reports indicated that Williams was cooperative when police arrested him.
The suit filed was also the second lawsuit against Williams, who was sued by members of the audience during a show he walked out on in November.
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 reports from 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.
