Police are investigating a report that Katt Williams pulled a gun on a patron inside of the Comedy Store in West Hollywood on Wednesday, July 2.
The 40-year old comedian, who not performing at the club, was being heckled by someone in the audience about his race and height, according to TMZ.
Katt lost his temper and reportedly pulled a gun on the heckler. 911 was called and police responded to the scene with 6 patrol cars. When they arrived Katt had left.
“He’s being investigated, preliminarily, for threatening someone with a weapon,” Sgt. Dave Valentine with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said, according to the New York Daily News. “(Williams) wasn’t performing. He was just there, but he was gone when we arrived. The victim filed a report. Obviously we’d like to hear Mr. Williams’ side of the story. We’re not sure if it was a heckler.”
Katt has had numerous run ins with both police and fans over the years. In October 2012, comedian Faizon Love accused Katt of pulling a gun on him in a dispute over money.
Katt reached out to TMZ to give his side of the story. According to him, previous reports have been completely off base.
The comedian claims he was the victim of an attack by 4 Bloods gang members who repeatedly referred to him as a Crip by calling him "cuz."
Katt says the 4 gang members followed him to his car and attacked him, but at no point did he pull a gun. He also believes the 911 call was from one of the Bloods.
