Comedian Katt Williams Leads Officers on Chase in Downtown
Capitol Protection Officers were engaged with in a pursuit of comedian Katt Williams in downtown Sacramento Sunday.
Sacramento Police originally contacted Williams near the Hyatt along L Street. He was asked to leave for disturbing the peace. He did, but was soon spotted by Capitol Protection Officers.
Apparently, Williams was driving a Can Am (a three-wheeled motorcycle) on a sidewalk. From L Street, he turned onto 13th Street then onto the closed-off section of K Street in front of the Esquire IMAX Theatre. Driving through, he was said to have almost hit five pedestrians.
At this point, Capitol Protection Officers were flashing their lights for him to stop. Williams then was said to have taken his helmet off, turned to the officer and said “I’m not going to stop.”
Williams then ran several more red lights and was not cited, with officers worrying about public safety if they continued the chase. The Can Am did not have a license plate.
This all reportedly happened within two minutes.
Capital Protection said they will be filing a complaint against Williams for the actions.
Witness Nick Larson, who took photos of Williams talking to officers, told FOX40 that Williams looked, “really drugged out and like he had been up for a while.”
Williams has recently been in trouble with the law, having been arrested in Oakland back on Nov. 15 on suspicion of assault. Fans from a botched show in Oakland have sued Williams as well. His show at Power Balance Pavilion on Friday was said to have gone smoothly.
