Katt Williams: Comedian released on bail after arrest in Los Angeles

- Associated Press - Monday, December 31, 2012

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Katt Williams, the comedian who repeatedly has found himself on the wrong side of the law, is out on bail after being arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of child endangerment and possession of a stolen gun.

Police Officer Norma Eisenman said Mr. Williams was taken into custody Friday after the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services did a welfare check at his home. Authorities found more than one firearm, one of which had been reported stolen.

Officer Eisenman said the family services agency did not specify how many children lived at the home or whether they were removed.

The 41-year-old Mr. Williams was arrested earlier this month on a felony warrant related to a police chase. In November, he was accused of hitting a man on the head with a bottle during a fight.
