Katt Williams Appears In Court Today Over 2016 Charges

Comedy News

Comedian Katt Williams appeared at a Fulton County courthouse Tuesday for a much-delayed hearing over a 2016 charge of battery.

In the courtroom, the judge presiding over the case wanted to hear from a witness not in court at that time. The case has been postponed for the witness to appear.

Williams — whose real name is Micah Sierra Williams — was arrested on an outstanding warrant after he turned himself in for a different warrant in September 2016.

He was charged with second-degree criminal damage to property, jail records show, stemming from a man who accused Williams of throwing his cellphone earlier that year in February.

Police in East Point discovered the warrant from the alleged incident after Williams turned himself in after he failed to appear in court on charges concerning a confrontation at an East Point restaurant, police said. In that confrontation, which happened in April 2016, Williams allegedly threw a salt shaker at a restaurant manager, bloodying the employee’s lip.

The new court date for Williams has not been set.
