Yet another celebrity has been arrested. Except this time it’s not for drugs or a DUI, it’s for burglary.
Funny man Katt Williams, real name Micha Williams, was arrested Sunday night in Newnan, Georgia and booked into Coweta County Jail on suspicion of burglary and criminal trespassing.
Today Williams posted the $41,150 bail and says his arrest was just “a misunderstanding between me and two stupid detectives.”
Williams (Friday After Next, Norbit) has been in Georgia for the last three weeks, staying at producer Barry Hankerson’s estate. Hankerson is currently producing a drama written and directed by Charles S. Dutton (Roc) called “The Obama Effect.” It has not been established whether or not Katt Williams had a role in the movie.
Apparently the Katt Williams drama started on November 3rd, when police received a call saying Williams was threatening someone on the property. Then on November 8th, an employee at Hankerson’s estate, Daniel Broach, called the cops; telling them Katt Williams had broken into the guest house on the property and had stolen some jewelry, along with coins worth $3,500.
Katt’s lawyer William Briggs says the robbery never happened and even made the accusation that the comedian was thrown to the police by someone at the estate, with whom Williams was having a dispute.
