Katt Williams Pleads Not Guilty To Allegedly Attacking Hired Driver
Katt Williams has reportedly pleaded not guilty in connection with an alleged assault that happened over the weekend, on a hired driver at Portland International Airport.
On Monday, the 47-year-old comedian was charged and pleaded not guilty to fourth-degree assault. As previously reported, he had come to Portland to perform in Nick Cannon’s “Wild ’N Out” comedy improv show Friday night.
He is said to have gotten in an argument with the driver about taking him and his dog to the show. He was accused of striking the driver.
The driver allegedly sustained minor injuries to his face, including swelling and cuts.
Williams remains in custody on an unrelated arrest warrant as an alleged fugitive from Georgia. He’s currently on supervision for pot possession there.
According to a separate report, Williams was unaware that he had a warrant out of his arrest and his team hid the information from him, so that he could attend the Emmy Awards last month.
