Katt Williams Not Cooperating with Police Investigation Into Gun Incident Involving Radio DJ’s Husband

Comedian Katt Williams has been ducking and dodging police as they investigate his run-in with an armed man outside the Atlanta Comedy Theater earlier this month.

According to TMZ, the investigation is still open. However, the likelihood of charges being filed against radio DJ Wanda Smith‘s husband, LaMorris Sellers, is slim to none, as police haven’t been able to reach Williams for questioning.

The investigation comes after surveillance footage showing Sellers chasing after the veteran comic outside the comedy club days after a ruthless on-air roasting session with Smith. Williams told police Sellers pulled a gun on him during the confrontation.

Authorities say they’ve reached out to the comedian for more info on the incident, but he has yet to get back to them. They even stopped by his home but got no answer, TMZ reported.

Sellers has since admitted to having a gun on him but denied pointing it at anyone, instead claiming it fell out of his waistband as he was chasing Williams. He and his wife insisted it was Williams who started the confrontation in the first place, and video later showed the comic threatening to “beat the brakes off” Smith’s husband.

“I told you f—king with me with me would make you go viral,” Smith and Sellers claim Williams told them.

Footage from the incident outside the club also contradicts Williams’ previous claim that Sellers pointed a gun at him.

Authorities said even if the comedian were to come forward and press charges, there likely wouldn’t be enough evidence to move forward and charge Sellers.

Speaking to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Smith’s husband said his confrontation with Williams had nothing to do with the on-air roasting.

“It had nothing to do with what was on the air,” Sellers said. “That’s what comedians do. When he came to the club, he targeted my wife. As a man, I’m not built like that. I couldn’t possibly let that happen. I have to protect my wife. I wasn’t looking for conflict. I just wanted him to keep it moving. He chose to do different.”
