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.”

‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism

Published

It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.

For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.

“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.

He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”

James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”

That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”

Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
