Katt Williams faces court appearance after fight with teen


GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Katt Williams faces an initial court appearance in Georgia, one day before the comedian was to have performed in New Orleans.

The hearing is set for 2 p.m. Thursday in Gainesville.

Authorities say Williams is jailed without bond following his arrest Wednesday. Police say the 44-year-old Williams and 17-year-old Luke Wash are charged with disorderly conduct after fighting at a Gainesville apartment complex. Wash is charged as an adult.

Yvette Shearer, who is handling publicity for Williams’ “Conspiracy Theory 2016” tour, said his Friday show in New Orleans is being rescheduled to May 6. His Saturday show in Bossier City, Louisiana, is being moved to April 30. She said all tickets will be honored on the new dates.

The arrest is the latest for Williams, who’s also accused of threatening a bodyguard and punching an employee at a pool supply store.
