Katt Williams released from jail after fight with teen


GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say comedian and actor Katt Williams has been released from a Georgia jail.

Hall County sheriff’s Deputy Nicole Bailes says Williams was released from the Hall County jail Thursday. Police say the 44-year-old Williams and 17-year-old Luke Wash are charged with disorderly conduct after a fight between them at a Gainesville apartment complex. Wash is charged as an adult.

Williams’ attorney Drew Findling says Williams was granted a $500 bond after his arrest on Wednesday.

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.
