Katt Williams arrested for burglary and trespassing

By  | 

It seems that many of our favorite celebrities follow a pattern. They often tend to be good looking, glamorous, talented, rich, frequently arrested and jailed…

Wait! How is that a desirable trait? It’s really not, but somehow the celebrity’s talent always seems to overpower the wrong deeds committed—or does it? (i.e. Chris Brown)

Katt Williams, popular comedian, rapper and actor, was arrested and placed in Atlanta jail Sunday night. He was charged with burglary and trespassing after being suspected of allegedly breaking into a home. The Southwest Atlanta suburb homeowner, who remains unnamed, called the police around 9 PM and claimed that several items were taken from his residence, including jewelry.

Isn’t it strange that someone with such a successful entertainment career would feel the need to steal from someone else? After all, in 2008 he was the one who willingly handed out $100 bills to his audience members at his standup performances in Los Angeles. Nobody made him do it.

But often times a celebrity’s life isn’t as happy and glamorous as it appears to be. About a year ago, he was also jailed for driving without a license and for possessing three handguns in his car. After a series of incidents involving “erratic behavior,” he was admitted to Tuomey Regional Medical Center in South Carolina for psychiatric evaluation on November 14, 2008.

Williams is known for his role in “Friday After Next,” his appearances in “Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out,” his album “Pimp Chronicles pt. 1,” and his many hilarious standup performances. He is often dubbed one of the funniest comedians “in the game.”

So if you were hoping to catch Katt Williams in concert this month, we hate to be the bearers of bad news—but it’s unlikely that he’ll be in San Diego any time soon.

    And then, there’s the possibility that he’s innocent, which this story never considers.

    Waldo, his guilt or innocence was not considered in the story because it isn’t clear at this point if he is guilty or innocent! What is clear is that he was arrested and will be awaiting trial.

    I’m no expert on the Atlanta judicial system, but I can say that often times people are not allowed to travel during the time between an arrest and the actual court date.

    Katt has spent years claiming to be a thug, theif, and pimp, so why would you assume he is innocent?

    I can’t speak for W, but I would assume his innocence because katt hasn’t been proven guilty, not by the courts, but the person posting this story seems to know more than the police, since the writer as so arrogantly calling him guilty. Though there are no words saying “katt is guilty” just read the first part all over again and the last line, you can see that the writer does all but out-right stating that katt is guilty..

    And now the news is out that he was released from jail and was just a guest in the home, not a burglar or thief…

    People seem to forget the word “alleged”… Just because someone is held in jail, doesn’t mean they are guilty.
