Katt Williams Arrested For Allegedly Assaulting Bodyguard
Katt Williams was arrested on Tuesday afternoon in Georgia for allegedly assaulting his bodyguard. This marks the second arrest for the comedian in just one week.
According to a press release by the Hall County Sheriffs Department, Williams was taken into custody after apparently beating up his own bodyguard because the man would not “engage in criminal activity as directed by Williams.”
Per the release, obtained by HipHollywood, it was alleged that victim Corey Dixon was taken into Katt’s house on February 28 and confined by several of the comedian’s associates. Dixon was then apparently beaten with a baseball bat and choked by the hands of 24-year-old Tatiana Smith.
A search warrant was executed at Williams’ home in Gainesville and during the search; authorities also found marijuana and several guns inside the residence.
According to court records, the comedian was booked on charges for aggravated assault, false imprisonment, terroristic threats,and is facing drug and weapons charges that will be added at a later date.
. Smith was booked on aggravated assault, possession of marijuana and possession of Alprazolam, meanwhile, another woman named Lena Smith, was taken into custody and charged with felony possession of marijuana.
A committal hearing is set for Williams on Wednesday afternoon at 2 pm.
Williams has had a string of personal woes and has shown signs of spiraling out of control. Just last week, the comedian was taken into custody after he apparently assaulted a store clerk. Over the weekend, the comedian also made headlines for his extremely bizarre behavior, which according to cell phone footage, led to the actor being jumped.
Because of the comedian’s recent antics, people have suggested that the star may be on drugs. But according to Katt’s girlfriend, Hazel-E, the 42-year-old is not on drugs.
Hazel by the way, also considered Tuesday the “worst day of my life.”
