Katt Williams has posted bond after getting into a fight with a teenager.
The comedian, who was arrested on disorderly conduct charges in Georgia on Wednesday, appeared in court in handcuffs and a yellow jumpsuit on Thursday where a judge granted him a $500 bond. He was expected to be released later in the day, according to the Associated Press.
However, the judge wasn’t too happy about it, given the comic’s slew of run-ins with the law. Williams was already out on a conditional bond when he got into a scuffle with 17-year-old Luke Wash after a pick-up soccer game last week. Wash was charged as an adult with disorderly conduct in the case.
“This was not a popular decision to have you released on bond,” the judge said in court video footage posted online, imploring Williams and his attorney not to give her any more reason to put the actor back in jail.
Williams’ attorney, Drew Findling, told USA Today that he doesn’t expect the comedian’s latest arrest to affect any of his other open cases. The “Scary Movie 5” actor has been arrested four times in recent weeks for a variety of incidents, including allegations that he threatened to kill his bodyguard and that he held five women at gunpoint.
“You look at all of [these cases] and there’s a warning sign that he’s a target,” Findling said. “All of these allegations are just so clouded and when you’re talking about a high-visibility person like Katt Williams, you just have to be curious as to what is the motivation of the accusers.”
The comic is currently traveling the U.S. on his “Conspiracy Theory 2016” tour, but his upcoming shows in New Orleans and Bossier City, La., have been postponed, his publicist Yvette Shearer told the AP.
