SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Comedian Katt Williams has been arrested in Northern California on a felony warrant related to a police chase.

The Sacramento Bee reports that Mr. Williams was arrested Friday night in Dunnigan, about 25 miles north of Sacramento, by Yolo County deputies.

The paper says he was released from the county jail Saturday after posting bail.

The sheriff’s department confirmed Mr. Williams‘ arrest late Saturday, but staffers on duty didn’t have details. A spokesman for the comedian didn’t immediately return a call and email.

The California Highway Patrol says Mr. Williams fled officers on a three-wheeled motorcycle on Nov. 25 after being spotted driving on a downtown Sacramento sidewalk.

The CHP said Mr. Williams was asked to stop and he refused, leading to the pursuit.

The CHP says Mr. Williams nearly hit five people during the chase, which police ended for safety reasons.
