Katt Williams

Katt Williams was released from the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta Friday night.

Williams told ABC News affiliate WSB-TV his legal troubles made him a victim of his own success.

The 42-year-old stand up comedian’s hands were wrapped in gauze bandage. A confidential source revealed he suffered minor injuries to both hands punching a wall in the jail.

Williams was holding blister packs containing medications which are usually issued to inmates with chemical imbalances of the brain, such as depression.

The troubled comedian was accompanied by his defense attorney Drew Findling.

He was arrested earlier in the week in Hall County, GA. on charges of assaulting one of his body guards who refused to commit a crime on his orders.

Williams was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, and false imprisonment, in addition to multiple weapons and drug charges in that case.

On Thursday, he was transferred to the Fulton County jail from Hall County on new charges, including entering auto, theft by taking, and simple battery.

  • I Run New York

    Seems like he’s crying out for help.

  • That’s Interesting

    Well, that’s the best I’ve ever seen him look, and he seems good and medicated. He’s talking like he has some sense. The Lord works in mysterious ways. Maybe this will get him the help and meds he needs.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He doesn’t look well. Praying for him…

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Praying for him. It’s either mental, drugs or both.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Katt has been speaking out against the powers that be… “They” will continue to make him look crazy until he rejoins them or he dies :(

    Who’s watching his 8 kids?

    This ninja is ill.

  • Cricket404

    I feel for Katt, without the education on mental illness, the average person trumps it up to someone’s personality “oh he’s just crazy”- not knowing what “crazy” really is.

  • side_i

    He doesn’t look well at all.

  • Monday

    He looks defeated

    I’m telling you be recognized being too real will get you in trouble in this industry

    Paul Mooney is next

  • Monday

    He looks like they force him to take medication. He looked fine before, just very expressive like Lauryn Hill

  • Monday

    YES . You’ve seen his interviews online.

    Now it looks like “they” trying to break him, they will force him to go to “rehab”

  • Monday

    I’m working today one this beautiful day. I’m happy too ???

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.daniels.7311 Lisa Daniels

    They did. Jails are required by law to make any inmate in their facility that has a mental seek treatment via medication or counseling while there. That’s why in intake they ask you if you have a mental illness or are you suicidal? I been to jail a few times, so I know.

  • Vonn

    I do this at work with fake stupid people. They act stupid, I act like I don’t understand what it is that they don’t understand. I turn it into National Act Stupid Day.

  • Sexy CJ

    Ha, Ha………I hear ya……….

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I saw him Valentine’s Day weekend, he was NOT funny & the tickets were ridiculously over-priced….FOH Katt with all this bullsh$t. Though I do think he would roast Kevin Hart’s a$$.

  • Justforfun

    I personally don’t think anything is wrong with him katt Williams is free meaning he is living life his way he has money he is independent it’s almost like when that one slave got tired of being a slave he broke free and went thru hell to get to a place where slaves were free and that’s katt Williams to me he might look crazy but when you live life by your rules people will think you are crazy to me he going thru hell so he can be his on man we really don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes all we know is what’s reported this man isn’t acting out for nothing that’s just my opinion

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I used to be a nurse in a jail. I ordered medication in blister packs for inmates with mental disorders all day long. He has 2 blister packs in his hand. That’s a lot of medicine. Maybe the nurse thought he was staying in jail for a while?

  • Li

    How is this man still working?

  • Brook York

    He really needs to get his life together.

  • That’s Interesting

    Sometimes you need to be forced. Lauryn is another one in serious need of a psych eval…lol.

  • Fendi

    Katt is 42 again. Brotha is aging in reverse.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    *From what I have seen, the majority of the meds are in blister packs, minus the topicals, solutions, etc., just because…nevermind

    You get the picture.

    Happy Saturday. Thanks for the weekend posts @SandraRose ?…?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    If you don’t say this stuff right HERE!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I will look at you just as dumb as I please.

    “Ok. I’m stupid. Keep on believing what you need to believe. If it works for you.” ?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I’m sure I know those people. I’m confident I do. They’re in every workspace, school, social group, church. Whuuut? Yeah, I said it. That’s what’s wrong now.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Funny thing about “intake”, unless one has a history of illness or is demonstrating some behavior that may have them restrained or sent for a consult, their response is what it is. Many don’t seek help or tell someone, “Hey, I’m suicidal” or “I am baby Jesus”.

  • Finding Forever…

    Cold World…Same ISH happened to Martin Lawrence & Dave Chappelle–OR THE CRAZY LABEL or is it just a COINCIDENCE, LOL…Dave was just at Oscars…MAYBE he had to come “back”, if your theory is correct…HURT POCKETS CAN MAKE YOU DO A LOT, I GUESS…

  • product of 79

    He looks a whole lot betta… Jus hush Katt… You to real for some and those who can’t respect the real will make it look like you are ill, crazy, doped up… What ever it is take it to GOD… Praying ? for you my G..(513? )

  • Finding Forever…

    EXACTLY…Just a week or so ago, one co-worker kills another @ work with a gun. Was on the run for about 3 or 4 days & then FINALLY turned himself in. He gets placed at “City Jail” & thee next day was FOUND HUNG…The FIRST thing the news reports based from DOC was during initial physic evaluation he showed no evidence of mental or suicide threat–SOOOO CLEARLY HE SLIPPED THROUGH THE CRACKS OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, I GUESS…

  • Finding Forever…

    Whatever the issue is, may he PLEASE seek help for it ONCE & FOR ALL…Usually gotta hit rock bottom, so HOPEFULLY this is his & he will want to seek HELP…

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    My mama in her 50’s not a winkle or gray hair in sight. Katts 42 in Yt people years , in reality he’s 50 something.

  • Fendi

    He isn’t 42, though. Per Google, he was porn in 1971. I thought he was older than that, but that definitely makes him > 42.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I keep telling people Katt isn’t crazy THEY just want us to believe he is. THEY did the exact same thing to Dave Chappelle . Dude went on Oprah to clear his name and in directly call “the unseen hand/s “out.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    So he’s really 45 then. That’s sound more realistic than 42. I guess all the stress from “the industry” aged him.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Katt Williams has unfortunately become a victim, of the unseen hands of Hollywood. Katt’s a perfect example of when keeping it real goes wrong. Unless Hollywood only employs mentally Ill people, something sinister is definitely going on behind the scenes. People in Hollywood usually end up in “rehab” ( reprogramming) when they wake up to their real reality and not their programed and or drug induced one.

  • JennyJazzhands

    Funny, no other celebrity is “targeted” this much.

  • JennyJazzhands

    They’re allowed to take it like that when they get released? All of it?

  • shell

    He’s holding his medication in his hand…

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.daniels.7311 Lisa Daniels

    At the rate he is going, they probably put a hold on him.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    They send you home with meds? I’m confused….. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    If an inmate is on psychotropic meds or they are diagnosed with a mental disorder while in jail, the medication arrives from the pharmacy in blister cards with the inmate’s name printed on them. When the inmate is released, they are given their meds because their name is on them. Otherwise the meds are thrown away. They can’t be given to other inmates.

  • whitty hutton

    Chile please…ain’t nobody tryna “make him look crazy”…that nigga been ignant from jump. We just hear about it more because he’s ‘famous’. That’s the problem with addicts…until they hit the proverbial “rock bottom”, it’s everybody else’s fault. He needs drug treatment, the appropriate psych meds and Jesus…in that order.

  • Tammy Westmoreland LaFon

    Praying for you Katt, Im looking forward to you making us laugh again.

  • Mel

    This dude is on something but all his yes men wont tell him so out of fear that the money will stop being thrown their way

  • Justforfun

    Exactly just like tupac when he was alive he went thru the exact same thing people couldn’t stand him now we celebrate him …..katt is like a modern day black panther he will not be controlled he is strong and he fighting back now if we as black people started fighting back it would be on we might go to jail we might get killed but shid would change that’s for sure

  • Carmen Jones

    No Words.. Just Universal Prayers for Mr. Williams.

  • Ssik am

    Every wonder why so many Americans are crazy and need meds to be “normal”…

  • Baron

    Hey, Katt actually looks pretty good in this photo. Shyt, he looks refreshed! Perhaps periodic trips to jail could do him good. Time to get away from it all and just reflect.

  • socaligirl99

    I’m currently a nurse at a jail in one of the major cities in the southeast and we give 30 days worth of mental health medications when inmates are released in hopes they continue to take their medications regularly when they leave. The 30 day supply is to hold them over until they can follow up with a provider outside of the jail. This does not include any controlled substances like Ativan or Xanax. Some are actually grateful for the supply, some don’t care.

  • Canary Red™

    Unfortunately, Paul Mooney was first! He was in the era with Richard Pryor & Redd Foxx…notice they went on to do movies etc…not Paul, he was blacked ball from jump for keeping it real with them yt folks.

  • Canary Red™

    PREACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Canary Red™

    SEXY CJ…dont start nothing…got me over shouting!!!!!!

  • Canary Red™

    both for 500…

  • Paige

    42? Can’t be. He looks every bit 60!!

  • Meme81

    Katt, if I were you I would take a hiatus from standup or hire a bodyguard to take the L for me in fights. Either you are looking for the fights or the fights coming to you. Either way, please stop making yourself a target.

  • JennyJazzhands

    Ah ok. That makes sense and is very nice. I was thinking what if they take it all when they leave and overdose or something? But I get it.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Ok that makes sense…. I hope he continues taking them.

  • Sk8board T

    This nigga like lil kid. Aggression and acting out for attention and shit. Nigga need psych help. Kinda sad.

  • Bonny

  • mela.reign77

    That hat though! But anyways I was watching some stuff of him and I swear when that hair started going left so did he. I don’t know if he got a bad perm or what but his hair went from a bouncy wrap to a layered bob , then a miniature mushroom now a fade shag of some sort. Jesus fix it! But seriously praying for him.

  • Satin Panther

    Katt is wearing black nail polish?? Oh my..

  • tynamight

    I want Katt to win, but his shenanigans are making it hard for me to root for him.
