Katt Williams was arrested outside his home near Los Angeles Tuesday (Jan. 8) night, for skipping a court date in Sacramento. The troubled comedian was taken into custody  and held on $105,000 bail.

He was released early this morning, and was aware of his pending bench warrant stemming from an incident in which he led police on a chase by way of a 3-wheeler.


From TMZ:

As we previously reported, a Sacramento judge issued a bench warrant for Katt’s arrest yesterday when the comedian failed to show up for his arraignment, stemming from his wild 3-wheeled police chase back in November. He’s been charged with evading a police officer while driving recklessly, a felony.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the LAPD was aware Katt was a wanted man and when detectives spotted him outside his Los Angeles home, they placed him under arrest.

We’re told Katt was fully cooperative with police.

Williams claims that his failure to appear was due to his inability to make all of his pending court dates at the same time, forcing him to prioritize.

Late last month the 39-year-old’s children were removed from his care amid claims of child endangerment. “No I actually don’t [have custody],” Williams told TMZ, stating that the children are in the care “the lady who tried to take ‘em and lost in court twice,”  referring to his ex.
