Just after 10 p.m. Wednesday, East Point police responded to a call about a fight inside Spondivits restaurant in the 1200 block of Virginia Avenue, Capt. Cliff Chandler said in a statement.
“Once at the location, the officers found an individual bleeding from an injury to his upper lip,” Chandler said. “Interviews of this victim and witnesses were conducted and Katt M. Williams was identified as the alleged perpetrator of this incident.”
According to Chandler, Williams asked the manager for special seating. The manager said no and Williams allegedly threw a salt shaker at the manager. The shaker hit the manager in the lip.
Williams left before police arrived; he was found a short time later at a nearby Waffle House.
“After being interviewed about his involvement in this incident,” Chandler said, “Mr. Williams was taken into custody without incident.”
He was taken to the East Point Law Enforcement Center, where he was booked on a battery charge. He was released at 12:30 a.m. on $1,000 bond. Katt has yet to comment.
