Stand-up comic Katt Williams arrested outside Seattle bar

(LA Times) –

What the heck is up with Katt Williams? The comedian on Monday told a Seattle TV station that he’s quitting his chosen profession.

“I’m just going to go ahead and announce my retirement from stand-up,” he told KOMO News in an interview as he exited what he said was the fourth hotel he’d been asked to leave in two days. “I’m kind of done.”

The 41-year-old, whose real name is Micah Williams, said he hadn’t planned to give the news on a Seattle street, but rather back in L.A. at the offices of ICM or concert promoter LiveNation.

He also told the station’s videographer that was going to offer $301,000 cash for a state ferry, so he’d have somewhere to stay in Seattle until a Thursday court date.

Williams was arrested Sunday afternoon, according to seattlepi.com, after a bar fight in which police said he’d brandished a pool cue at a bar manager and followed a family outside to their car, flicking a cigarette at the face of a woman in the car and throwing a rock at the vehicle.

Williams has been having a rocky time of it as he tours the West Coast.
