Katt Williams Ordered To Pay $577,000 For Dog Attack
Katt Williams has been ordered by a judge to pay more than $500,000 to a man who claims that the comedian commanded his dog to attack his pet when he asked him for an unpaid debt.
As previously reported, producer Merion Joseph Powers sued Katt after he racked up a $28,000 bill in his studio, but refused to pay it.
Powers filed legal papers saying that when he pressed Williams for the money, Katt paid him a visit with his attack dog in tow.
According to court documents, Powers alleges that Katt gave his dog a “verbal attack signal” to go after his animal leaving it with “substantial and nearly life-threatening injuries.”
TMZ now reports that when the men faced off in court recently, the judge ruled in Powers’ favor and ordered Katt to pay the man a whopping $577k.
TMZ’ Calls to Katt’s reps were not returned.
