Katt Williams NOT Retiring, A No-Show For Court Appearance

Katt Williams was a no-show in court for his arraignment hearing in Seattle after a string of strange behavior has left him with a few assault charges.

Being a no-show to a few comedy shows is bad enough, but now Katt has decided not to show up for court either.

The comedian’s attorney claims that he wasn’t in court simply because he didn’t think he had to actually attend the hearing. He also revealed that Williams has already departed for California, ready to leave what he felt was a disrespectful tour stop.

Lucky for Katt he won’t face any consequences for his absences this time. The judge rescheduled the hearing for next week, and this time it has been made clear that the comedian needs to be present in the courtroom.

The hearing is pertaining to the 2 charges of 4th degree misdemeanor assault that the 39-year-old racked up after his short stay in Seattle for his comedy tour.

The charges came after he hit one fan over the head with the microphone at his comedy show, throw a bar stool at others, and later got into a bar fight that ended in him threatening the owner with a pool cue and throwing a rock at woman’s car.

These aren’t even all of the crazy incidents that went down over the past few weeks.

The “Norbit” actor was also caught on camera slapping a Target employee before riding out the store on a cart. After the incident he led police on a high speed chase on a motorized three-wheeled vehicle – a grown up trike if you will.

Apparently he was just as frustrated of all the nonsense as everyone else he was assaulting so he decided to retire… for four days.

The frustrated comedian stood on a street corner in Seattle to make his retirement announcement. He described himself as being “kinda done.”

We’re sure his fans are “kinda done” with getting hit with bar stools and microphones as well.

A mere four days after making the announcement, however, his management came out to explain that Williams will actually not be retiring.

“Katt is definitely NOT retiring,” his management assured. “He will be moving forward with the tour… Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama.”

His management also tried to explain why the “Friday After Next” actor wanted to retire in the first place – apparently he felt “unappreciated.”

“The reason he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle,” his management added as if fans had not also been disrespected along the way. “He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from his point forward.”

Well, he certainly won’t be earning much sympathy for feeling “unappreciated,” and if he fails to show up in court again the way he has been failing to show for his comedy gigs the consequences are likely to get more serious.


Rapper Snoop Dogg now known as Snoop Lion has voiced his concerned over Katt’s recent incidents. Snoop implored those closest to the comedian to get him some help fast.

“Katt needs some help man,” Snoop told TMZ cameras in LA. “Somebody needs to really sit him down and get him some help.” Snoop continued, “I’m his friend man … I really wanna see him get some help man before he goes too far. Whoever really got love for Katt that’s around him, you need to take him and go get him some help.”
