Comedian Katt Williams is in trouble — again.
Just after 10 p.m. Wednesday, East Point police responded to a call about a fight inside Spondivits restaurant in the 1200 block of Virginia Avenue, Capt. Cliff Chandler said in a statement.
“Once at the location, the officers found an individual bleeding from an injury to his upper lip,” Chandler said. “Interviews of this victim and witnesses were conducted and Katt M. Williams was identified as the alleged perpetrator of this incident.”
According to Chandler, Williams asked the manager for special seating. The manager said no and Williams allegedly threw a salt shaker at the manager. The shaker hit the manager in the lip.
Williams left before police arrived; he was found a short time later at a nearby Waffle House.
“After being interviewed about his involvement in this incident,” Chandler said, “Mr. Williams was taken into custody without incident.”
Williams was taken to the East Point Law Enforcement Center, where he was booked on a battery charge. He was released at 12:30 a.m. on $1,000 bond.
The investigation into the alleged fight at Spondivits is ongoing.
Since February, Williams has had multiple run-ins with the law in Hall County and in Atlanta.
— an arrest over an altercation at a pool supplies store in Hall County;
— charges of assault involving his bodyguard, also in Hall County;
— an arrest over accusations that he attacked and stole cellphones from several women in Atlanta;
— and an arrest after a scuffle with a teen in Gainesville that was captured on a video that went viral.
After he bonded out of Fulton County Jail in March, Williams said, “I am just like most Christians, under daily attack, but somehow holding up well.”
