What the hell has this guy been on this past month?

Comedian Katt Williams was once one of the funniest people on the planet. Now, he's in a very bad place. Yesterday, a judge in Seattle issued two warrants after Williams failed to show up to court there. This was just the latest event in a protracted timeline of highly ridiculous incidents, many of which have ended in Williams' arrest. Let's look at all that Williams has done to terrorize the West Coast this holiday season.
On Nov. 9, Williams was sued in L.A. court by his assistant Melissa Ishage, who alleges that the comedian attacked her in his house in early October, causing injuries that required her to be taken to the hospital. Police were called to the scene at the time but no arrests were made. Ishage is suing for $5 million. Six days later, Williams was arrested in Oakland after a fight at a club called Kimball's Carnival. According to police, Williams struck a man over the head with a bottle. He was released pending further investigation.


Two days later, Williams took the stage at the Coliseum in Oakland to perform to a sold-out crowd. That quickly devolved into a complete mess after Williams began his set with an elongated (and often hilarious) freestyle rap. After the crowd got hostile, Williams threatened a heckler to a fight before he was pulled offstage by his security. The show's emcee then came out and implied to the crowd that Williams was on cocaine. Nine days after that, a class action suit was filed in Alameda County by a man named Brian Herline over the aborted performance. Herline's suit says that Williams "confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members." On Nov. 27, Williams was arrested in Sacramento after leading police on a chase. Williams was driving his three-wheel ATV on the sidewalk when police attempted to pull him over. He took off, driving wildly — including down the wrong side of the road — before the police called the pursuit off for public safety reasons. Williams was charged with felony evasion and a warrant was issued for his arrest.


Later that day, Williams went to a Target in Sacramento. There he slapped an employee on the face before fleeing as cops were called.


Three days later on Nov. 30, Williams was performing in Seattle when he whipped his microphone at an audience member, striking him in the head. The victim, Carlos Castro-Lino, earned Williams ire because he was recording the show. After hitting the man, Williams addressed the crowd: "It could happen to you. Record me and see what happens to you. Go home and get your raggedy pistol and bring it back. I already got mine." Two days after that, while still in Seattle, Williams held up a chair and threatened to attack two fans that attempted to take a photo with him after his show. On Dec. 3, he was arrested after inciting another fight at a bar. This time, Williams allegedly threatened the manager of the restaurant with a pool cue when asked to leave. He then followed a family out into the parking lot and threw a cigarette at a woman, hitting her in the eye. Also, he threw rocks at the car. Two hours later, Williams was bailed out of jail by one-time hip-hop mogul Suge Knight. If Suge Knight is your last lifeline, you're in serious trouble.


The next day, Williams was kicked out of a hotel in Seattle for the fourth time. KOMO news in Seattle caught up with Williams, who announced that he was retiring from stand-up comedy. He also said that he was offering $301,000 to buy the Washington State Ferry so that his friends and entourage had somewhere to stay as he awaited his court dates in Seattle. Lastly, he added that he was suing the city of Seattle for $50 million. The same day, Forrest Liebenberg, the Target employee that Williams slapped was fired. The company said that it was unrelated to the incident with Williams, but Liebenberg said it was "obvious" to him that his termination stemmed from the incident. Liebenberg said that the confrontation with Williams began when Williams attempted to buy a motorcycle helmet off him. In the meantime, Williams missed a court date in California stemming from his earlier arrests. On Dec. 6, the man who was hit in the face with the microphone, filed suit against Williams. The man says that Williams told him to go home and get a gun — effectively threatening him to a duel. On the same day, Williams announced that he was no longer retired from comedy. Aaaaand here we are today, with Williams a wanted man in Seattle after failing to appear in court on charges stemming from the pool cue incident.

Sure sounds like he's been doing quite a bit of blow. I hear people get irritable when high on coke.

That's the comedian's life for you. You have to have a certain mind to be one and you're going to burn out.

He needs a serious intervention or he's going to be dead in a few years which would be a tragedy.

I don't think he makes it to 2014 at this point. Whats even scarier is that apparently he is being managed by Suge Knight. How can anyone think that is smart business move?

Katt Williams is Such an enigma, you would never know it because of his comedy act, but the guy is really smart, he has a masters degree in communications I think it was, he also once scored at like genius levels in an IQ test, and I believe it was him that could play Beethoven songs on the piano flawlessly. However he gets caught up in a lot of dumb stuff. I think he is going down the same path that Martin Lawrence went thru for a while. I hope he gets himself together before its too late.

I'm going to see Louis on tour in Philly in January. I'm so pumped about it. I saw him at Bonnaroo years ago before his shows and fell in love. He added shows to his tour recently. There might be some left. Check out his website. Tickets are relatively cheap. Every seat is $45. First come gets best seat. So front row pays same as nosebleeds. (at least that's the impression i was left with from his site)

i've never heard the genius/piano/masters degree stuff before, but i do know he's adopted something like 7 children. he's like brangelina. i always thought he was a really decent guy with a huge heart, but damn... those kids might be taken away....should be taken away.

I used to be a part of Katt Williams’ camp and I would like to remain anonymous. I am really hoping you post this. I know his girlfriend (who needs just as much help as he does) searches for this stuff online and shows it to him. Katt has outcasted EVERYONE who cares about him for trying to help him. He is NOT on drugs which is what the public thinks. Katt was diagnosed Bi-Polar Schizophrenic back in 2008 after he did a two week stretch in the mental institution.

If you do your research as to when things start happening with him every year it’s around the same time. Oct – Jan he is in a MANIC DEPRESSIVE state and he is not on any meds. Don’t get me wrong he’s mentally ill 365 days a year however starting around October and ending around January he goes through SERIOUS trouble. There is NO ONE around him who will get him any help. Everyone with him is either just as crazy as he is, or milking him for his money because he spends frivolously when he is like this then blames other people for stealing after he semi-snaps back to reality!

We are all still rooting for Katt. But until someone puts out there what’s REALLY wrong with him he’s going to keep denying it. His girlfriend needs just as much help as he does. She left a job she got as a personal assistant to Paula Abdul when Katt kicked her to the curb to come back to being by his side upon his request. She’s been totally brainwashed by him and does whatever he tells her. At one point he had the people around him calling him “MY Lord.”

Never really thought he was all that funny to begin with, I'm more of a Kevin Hart kinda guy. That's completely beside the point. Anyway, dude needs to get help, and quick. Would hate to see him ruin his life over something fixable.

He needs help?????the guy needs to be put behind bars. Can't have a physco with millions of dollars running around headless with no type of punishment endangering everywhere he goes. He's a pro an icon and a lot of people look up to him. Nothing less then 3 years since he is disrespecting the potential punshinent he can serve by continuesly putting others in danger.

He lost his mind years ago. Remember when he broke into someone's home to steal jewelry?

Chappelle handled the pressure pretty good if you ask me. Thought it was getting too big for him, disappeared and went to Africa to clear his mind. The whole crack/cocaine/mental institute BS was invented by media and people speculation, but Chappelle just got out of the industry as soon as it became overwhelming. Very down to earth guy and I really admire him for that.

Or sooner if he keeps on picking fights, he's not very big, sooner or later somebody is gonna take him down!
