Legal drama seems to be following Katt Williams. On Wednesday new allegations surfaced against the controversial comedian, who was arrested Monday on a battery charge in Georgia.
According to the AJC, attorney Loletha Hale accused Williams and about 15 members of his entourage and security team of physically attacking and stealing cellphones from five women visiting Atlanta for the weekend.

The latest incident began when Salena Boston and a group of friends spotted Williams walking about 2:30 a.m. Sunday near West Peachtree and 3rd streets, according to an Atlanta police report. Boston said they approached the comedian, whose real name is Micah Williams, and he agreed to take a photo with them. When one of the people with Boston began filming Williams, he got angry and started fighting the women, Boston said in the report. He punched Boston, pointed a gun at the group and took the women’s cellphones at one point, she said.
According to the police report, Williams refutes Boston’s account of what happened. He said the group of women started harassing, filming and taking pictures of him without his consent. They then “became irate” and snatched a chain from his neck, which led Williams to start a fight with the group, according to the report. His security team saw what was happening and allegedly approached the women.
At one point in the incident, one of the women said “she was going to her car to get something to pop somebody,” Williams said in the report. A member of Williams’ entourage then took a firearm out and sat it down on a concrete post, according to the report. Police later arrived and handcuffed Williams but made no arrests. An officer said there are cameras at the corner of Cypress and 4th streets, but police couldn’t view the footage because they couldn’t determine who owned the cameras. Hale and the women alleging Williams attacked them are scheduled to speak at a 2 p.m. press conference in front of Atlanta police headquarters.
