Katt Williams

Katt Williams is back behind bars. The 47-year-old comedian was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an Uber driver during an argument about driving his dog from a private Portland, Oregon airport on Friday night.

Williams, whose real name is Micah Williams, was booked to perform in Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" comedy show in Portland when the incident occurred.

The limo driver was taken to a hospital for treatment of multiple lacerations and bruises on his face. Williams left the scene in another Uber car. He was arrested and booked in jail on Saturday.

Williams, who has 19 prior felonies, is currently being held on $2,500 bail.

He is charged with assault in the fourth degree, and he is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday. He is also being held on an arrest warrant out of Georgia.

An employee who answered the phone at Atlantic Aviation Airport told a reporter her boss instructed workers not to comment on the incident.

Williams who is best known for his standup comedy won an Emmy last month for "Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance in FX's "Atlanta".

    Oh no not again. Kat needs help, he is a huge talent but his fcuk ups are holding him back in the industry. Dang!

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    You can always tell when Katt Williams has upset the "status quo." He ends of being arrested shortly there after.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Williams, who has 19 prior felonies,

  • FukkFolks2018

    Big facts. I knew this was coming

  • ClaireHuxtable

    A tremendous talent, but not a good role model for his children. His kids...that he clearly loves...are learning what they see, not necessarily what he may tell them.
    His fame & money get him out of jail. They won't have that privilege.

    Katt needs to put his temper in check. We want to see him working...not in mugsh0ts.

  • MissHarlem23

    Wow, katt williams is on a roll, what will he do next? He will pay the $2500 bail and be out and on to his next adventure.

  • iWasteTime

    Sissss!!
    I saw this and immediately thought of you!
    I think you can click and it'll take you to it!
    His No Bi**h took me right out!

  • SweetTEE

    Evvverytime he speaks the truth..

  • iWasteTime
  • RaginB

    Yeah cuz the “status quo” gave the limo driver multiple lacerations & bruises.?

    I fw Katt but damn..

  • Blaque Mahogany

    $2500? Why is he still locked up?

    He looks healthy in that pic. Anyone know what that is on his chin?

  • tintin

    Drugs make u fight for no reason

  • OvertheMississippi

    I love Katt. The end!!

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    If you believe that this tiny man is doing ALL of this damage to grown folks but can't whoop a kid his size then so be it.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    So let me get this straight......Katt is ALWAYS successful in whooping grown folks azzes but can't whoop a kid. Yeah....ok.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I was so done when I saw this??????

  • the guest

    Love Katt too.

  • the guest

    SPEAK!

  • FukkFolks2018

    It has never been one time that he has not spoken out against something or about something in the industry, that within a week or two he is arrested. It's traceable and available to all the naysayers

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    TELL IT!!!!!!!

  • Ni Ni

    Katt just cain't get right. Folks gone still blame it on TPTB and not this grown arse lil man?.

  • Junkanoo

    He looks good in that picture don't care still like him

  • FukkFolks2018

    19 times arrested. That is no coincidence. If it IS a conicidence it's a hellava of a one

  • RaginB

    But Katt put his hands on that 15 year old FIRST....if that’s what you referring to. https://youtu.be/LdMFEhM17z8

  • the guest

    Tell it!

    The driver was probably a set up to provoke and instigate. Racism goes to insidious lengths to cut down uppity black folks speaking the truth.

  • hi-liter

    SMH ?????.....lil Napoleon Dynamite

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    The point I am making is that a child beat his azz. Now imagine if Katt put hands on a grown man as they are always claiming.....what that kid did to him would be NOTHING compared to what a grown azz man would do to him. Katt would be deceased.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    EXACTLY!!!!

  • Anonymouse

    How is it holding him back. He just won an Emmy for a GUEST appearance.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Katt scratched em up ??

  • Bossy704

    He doesn't seem like a violent person.

  • the guest

    God I just LOVE when we can see the truth behind racist targeting.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    When you've lived it you know it when you see it.

  • Anonymouse

    I wonder what ends up happening after the arrests. Is he on probation? Were charges dismissed? You always hear about the arrests but never the resolution.

  • Yardgirl

    Exactly what I mean by holding him back. He is soooo talented and every time he rocks the boat something happens. No coincidence.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yoni7

    What did he do/say/speak out against? I may have missed it. The last thing I remember is him being chased by that lady's husband. Did something else happen after that?

  • the guest

    I'm telling you, that Uber was a set up to make sure he didn't get to his show.

    I wonder if his Uber account is in his real or stage name? Or did the venue order the Uber for him? If Katt was identifiable, then this was a set up.

    No one likes to talk about it but Uber DOES racially profile and keeps tabs on black folks.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    I am sure "Big Brother" keeps a close eye on him and know his every move.

  • Yoni7

    Oooohh ok. I remember that now. I never listened to his (or Kevin's and Tiffany's) interview, but I remember the buzz about it. Thanks.

  • the guest

    Katt's only fk up is being a highly intelligent, conscientious, articulate, conscious, independent, outspoken, and very rich black male entertainer in America.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    Well you know what's coming next for Katt.......look for him to be caught up in some type of rape allegation. This usually works every time when it's alleged against a black man. ALL SUPPORT WILL BE WITHDRAWN. They will effectively cut his resources. WATCH AND SEE!

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    No problem.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    SPEAK!!!!!!

  • Yardgirl

    He is more talented than a lot of the "steadily working" comedians out there, that is what I meant by "holding him back".

  • iWasteTime

    I watched it too many times ... lmao!!

  • KLove

    Correction, as per Katt: 19 felonies...NO convictions LOLOL

  • Hater

    He got a tattoo on his chin

  • the guest

    Dared to call out Hollywood's tokens of the moment for being tokens of the moment. Especially calling out Tiffany pandering to white men, that set off the white male Hollywood establishment.

  • Yardgirl

    He is all of what you stated above yet mediocre comedians are out there steadily working. THAT is what I meant.

  • CookieMobster
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If you're a millionare many times over, and yet you keep finding yourself in handcuffs sitting in the back of a police car, you probably need to seriously examine your life.

  • the guest

    Only use "foreign white" fictious names on Uber and only give proximity of destination and then direct to the nearby real address when you get nearby.

    It should have been picking up "Thor" going to the "Starbucks near the venue". Not Katt going to the venue. Katt has to outsmart big brother because the targeting is very real.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Kat is already prepared for this ... many like himself have been through the ringer spiritually ..... his resources are already stored ..... his awareness to what these folks are doing is all he needs and he knows ..... these folks make me sick .... the industry is a beast if you don't bow to them and he want .....

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He pays high-powered attorneys to get him a light sentence, or get the charges dismissed. When you can afford the best lawyers money can buy, that's what usually happens. The system doesnt treat rich people the way it treats regular folk like us.

  • Marlika

    What’s so hard about getting out the first Uber and calling another one? ??

  • Kanyade

    smh. cocaine leads to receding hairlines.

  • the guest

    The more mediocre comedians and the more successful comedians aren't a threat to the Hollywood establishment like Katt is.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Most of us wouldnt even accept this kind of behavior if we had a teenage son acting this way. For a nearly 50 year old man to be acting like this is ridiculous.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Oh you mean like the high powered attorneys.....Bill Cosby, Tupac, Tyson, OJ, and the many other convicted black stars had. Uhhhhh.....high powered attorneys only works in the cases of white folks.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, I could come up with examples too, like Puffy, Jay Z, OJ (got off on the first murder case), Chris Brown and others... in addition to Katt Williams here. Katt himself says he's been arrested like 18 times and never went to prison. You think Tyrone from the 'hood would have gotten the same treatment after multiple drug & assault arests? Nah. Having an expensive attorney is a big help. It might not protect you every time, but it definitely helps.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    and I tell folks all thee time .... there are no coincidences in this world .... None https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif Stay Woke bew !!!

  • RaginB

    ?talkin bout it’s a conspiracy cuz he talked about Tiffany and Kevin...Chile.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Did R. Kelly have a baby with his cousin or no? I really just need to know if he has a 21 y.o cousin/son out here.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Thank you. Ninjas want to be blaming "the system" for every thing, and making excuses for bad behavior. smh.

  • Tlowe89

    Millionaires and non millionaires suffer mental illness too, and both sets of groups sometimes refuse to get treatment

    these are just facts, sir lol.

  • Gloria

    Whoa. I didn't hear anything about this.

    (goes to google)

  • Gloria

    Ummmm,

    If his bail is only 2500, why is he still locked up? lol

  • FukkFolks2018

    WHET?????

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    You can NOT be moonlighting and not give them their cut Katt done say there’s and bragged on the airwaves about how He produced and made all this money off his own tours with no middle man and that he has booked his own shows no middle man all that money and they ain’t getting a cut!! And now you telling others how you cutting deals god forbid they get the notion to do the same. NOW with that being said I still feel like katt has some issues because knowing what he knows he should move differently and avoid the bs at all costs . Also when being targeted spiritually and otherwise you should keep a sober mind meaning no alcohol no weed no nothing cuz those things lower your inhibition and you won’t be fully aware of the evil that’s lurking during your time being lit!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Allegedly. Started sleeping with his cousin when she was 14. She had the baby at 17. Son is now 21 (and he might be fine couldn't really see the pic).

  • Ang

    The most surprising thing in this story is that his real name is Micah. ?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He is mental health.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    I wonder if a conviction will stick with this charge. I'm sure it doesn't matter, they know he's done in the court of public opinion. We love our own, but only until their propaganda tells us not to. Everybody loves Dave Chappelle, but listened and learned nothing from his dealings with these people. I wonder if he is still on the crack they claimed he left money behind to go smoke.

  • imright

    hes so nasty

  • Judge Mental Will

    Surprise Surprise! Nothing new here people so lets just move along. History shows once he's released he'll be back in jail within a month.

  • imright

    all the bags he gets from his constant touring he spends on his high priced attorneys.got it????do better Katt

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Lmao facts

  • Karen Brady

    Was the dog his or the Uber's?

  • Karen Brady

    HAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHA.

  • Lady_Elle

    I thought the same. lol

  • Mielle Downey

    The truth hurts. Every time this man speaks his truth people are sent to mess with because the know he the type to press buttons.

  • Li-Wright

    Somebody explain this to me. If you have a history of violence, doesn't your insurance cost go up? I thought that the rappers, actors, comedians who had a history of bad behavior and violence couldn't be insured. How is it that Katt is on a tour with Nick Cannon? Doesn't that cause insurance to go up?

  • WhoKnew

    Right. Bye short little "crazy AF" ninja.

  • Trace da Ace

    damn...this dude has more arrests than success.......like being arrested doing dumb shit is now his remain claim to fame...smdh....Katt, I'm going to need you to get on the good foot and stop acting like a asshole....

  • Junkanoo

    That did cross my mind when you piss off the Hollywood machine they the ramp up the bad press on you with a quickness

  • Reenaface

    This is part for the course for Katt, he knew the risks of putting the elites bought and paid for puppets on blasts.

  • the guest

    Modern Lynching.

  • millz

    Kat my friend you done upset “them” again...
    I knew after that Wanda Smith mess something would happen... and right after his Emmy win... he’s one of the real ones ?
    I definitely will be purchasing a ticket to his next show!

  • the guest

    So many brothers and sisters live through it and STILL can't see it. Consciousness is the exception not the rule. Thank god there are those of us who are conscious.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Katt is Katt and what he said still stands, he's had a problematic past, and this incident is no different!

    We can vividly see Katt's flaws and missteps, while others are more concealed and or of not of a legal nature, but still flaws!

    This will be fodder for his next standup routine, the dog and the uber driver!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Same thing I'm wondering because it wasn't clear in the write-up.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I second that.. WHET???????

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    He snorted so much, it "blew his wig back". That's a whole lotta blow, he was Scarfacin it!

  • MsChocCookie

    Free Katt!! I love Katt, and is he 47 or 50 because Katt, said he's 50, it came straight out of his mouth!

  • Kayke

    Because he’s 19 felonies with NO convictions. He is never found guilty and he doesn’t seem to be having to make payouts to his “victims”. According to the law, he’s no criminal, he just has lots of misunderstandings lol.... some I believe are orchestrated.

  • Kayke

    His dog, that the Uber driver didn’t want to carry.

  • Kayke

    The arrest warrant from Georgia is why he’s being held.... I wonder what that one is for.

  • dontgetblocked

    19 prior felony arrests? He's a career criminal

  • dru and neil

    You’re right but what’s sad is a lot of folks are like “oh that’s just Katt being Katt!” But maybe it’s time to grow up because a 50 year old man getting arrested over an Uber and a dog isn’t actually funny or cute.

  • dru and neil

    People will try to explain away anything..

  • Browneyes

    no convictions to date

  • Notatall

    At all

  • Applebootay

    The limo driver....is also an Uber Driver?

  • And then there is that!

    People always want to make excuses for this man. He is the typical loud crazy family member that blames every body else for their troubles and momma and nem making excuses for him. Which means he never has to be accountable for his shit. Katt is not that important where people are internationally taking time, money and resources to make him fall. He does that by himself pretty good. I guess this is K.Hart and T. Haddish fault too?????

  • Mielle Downey

    they like shut down when you start messing with their money. Dave was called a crackhead that went to Africa to smoke crack lmao, martin Lawrence running through the streets after he was on arseno speaking truth was found running through the street naked and are perfect examples.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Maybe his nephew is an attorney so he keeps it all in the family.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Funny people can sometimes snap.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    I love me some Katt but I could always tell something was a little disturbed about him...like what he says holds some truth. He's like that drunk auntie that's always fucked up at the family dinners but she will take you down with pure facts slurring and all if you test her lol.....

  • Kimocha

    A combination of drugs and short man complex in full effect!... Smdh

  • Anonymouse

    lol... your comment still doesn’t make sense.

    Nothing is holding him back.

    He’s still making money and is an Emmy winner to boot. At most, those steadily working comedians get BET awards or something silly like that.

    Katt Williams is doing better than them. What’s Kevin Hart doing these days? Running marathons?

  • the guest

    Yep.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Orchestrated! I will #vouch for nxggxs testing u, intentionally, simply bc u attained any level of success YOU comfortable with. & can #Respect a person/entertainer that defends themselves from the ppl who only want to be slapped instead of getting an autograph /free ticket/tfo/etc

  • Goodii2Shoes

    That would be awesome

  • Goodii2Shoes

    lol, I don't ride Uber but every story in the news has been exactly what I imagined ridesharing would result in. & that is the question I ask every time I see the Uber stories: "Can you get out&call another 1?"

    But then, I remember that a lot of taxis don't/didnt pick up ppl they discriminate against (young or "looks" unable to pay or "dangerous") & wonder if the old cabbies had a point? lol, they're jumping off bridges & ish now so I guess it rly doesn't matter what they thought .......

  • Goodii2Shoes

    If we need a role model, I nominate Katt. Make them M's, slap nxggxs who sign up for it & keep ur private life mostly private w/no convictions

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Ha! Ur teenage son bring home a 7 figure payday, tour & sell .... he can do this & everybody in the household minus who ever designated to post bond JUMPING anybody who start somn

  • Kayke

    Exactly. I’ve got a cousin that’s Katt’s stature but broader, and he’s no celebrity, but I swear since we were young he is unnecessarily disrespected by other men because of his size. People always try to test him, then try to call him crazy when that Jamaican come out and he’s ready to kill something. I can only imagine what it’s like for small dudes with money and recognition up against these nobodies trying to get a lawsuit.

  • HelloToni

    I hope it wasn't a woman.

    Time to slow-down BO-BO! I'm praying for him!

  • monique

    I thought he didn't have felonies or was it no convictions. His bail is awfully low for a 19-felony black male. Who cares for his 7 kids while he's locked up?

  • HelloToni

    Thank you
