Comedian Katt Williams' Sticky Fingers Land Him In Jail
Comedian Katt Williams was arrested for burglary and criminal trespassing in Georgia.
So I guess this "Pimp" has something new to add to his chronicles.
Williams, who is known for his off color comedy, also starred in a handful of TV shows and in a few flicks over the years.
I guess the revenue from those flicks, and his comedy act were not enough to tide ol' Katt over, since he was recently caught knocking over a house and allegedlygrabbing $3,500 worth of bling and coins from a house.
Tsk tsk. Was someone too busy putting on airs, rather than watching their cash flow?
Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) — Comedian Katt Williams was arrested on burglary and criminal trespass charges in a west Georgia community early Monday, according to police.
A police report said Williams, 38, used a crowbar to force his way into a home in a rural area about six miles west of Newnan, Georgia, late Sunday.
About $3,500 worth of jewelry and collectable coins were stolen, according to the report by the Coweta County, Georgia, Sheriff's Department.
Williams, 38, smiled broadly while posing for a mug shot photo at the Coweta County jail.
His first court appearance is set for 4 p.m. ET Monday, when a magistrate will decide if Williams is eligible for bond, said Deborah Matthews, a Coweta County magistrate court spokeswoman.
Williams' manager declined to comment.
Williams began his career as a stand-up comic, gaining attention in 1999 for comedy club appearances. Television appearances on the BET Network led to more success.
His 2006 HBO special "Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt.1" raised his profile.
He has acted in several movies, including Eddie Murphy's "Norbit."
His often raunchy style has drawn comparisons to comedy legend Richard Pryor.
His DVD set — "It's Pimpin' Pimpin'," — is scheduled for release this Wednesday, according to his Web site.Continued on the next page
