TMZ is currently reporting that Katt Williams was arrested in L.A. after blowing off a court date in Sacramento. This guy just can’t catch a break…
As previously reported by the popular gossip site, a Sacramento judge issued a bench warrant for Katt’s arrest yesterday when the troubled comedian did not show up for his arraignment! Williams has been charged with evading a police officer while driving recklessly, a felony.
LAPD was reportedly aware Katt was a wanted man and was arrested by detectives who spotted the comedian outside his Los Angeles home!
We’re told Katt was fully cooperative with the LAPD, but is currently being held on $100,500 bail!
UPDATE: 6:14 AM PT — Katt was released from jail last night, and explained the situation to TMZ….
According to Katt, he was only arrested because he couldn’t be in two courtrooms at once … and chose the case that was more important to him — the case involving the custody of his children.
But when asked if the judge awarded him custody of his children, Katt explained, “No, I actually don’t [have custody] … the lady who tried to take ‘em and lost in court twice, they gave ‘em to her.
