Katt Williams was detained along with his longtime friend and tour manager Suge Knight. According to Zap2it,
“Katt Williams and “tour manager” Suge Knight were both cited by police outside a Subway restaurant in Los Angeles. The details are sketchy, as they tend to be when Katt — or Suge, for that matter — is involved.”
E! provided more clarity,
“A spokeswoman for the West Hollywood Police Department tells E! News the 39-year-old comic was detained by authorities on Thursday night for parking too close to a fire hydrant. He was subsequently given a citation.”
Katt Williams told reporters on the scene he was “standing around, minding hos own business when cops rolled up and snatched him. Katt was all smiles as police confiscated his marijuana and handgun. Both were returned because the comic had a prescription for the weed and a permit for the gun.” Meanwhile, Suge Knight was busy getting a manicure/pedicure. He too received a citation for outstanding warrants.
Williams, ever the comedian, joked with reporters that he may contact famed attorney Gloria Allred to represent him in a lawsuit against the police department. According to Williams the events were “racially motivated”.
Earlier this week, Williams revealed his decision to slap a Target employee was also racially motivated.
