Katt Williams had a change of heart and decided he was wasn't going to retire after all. Several days ago the comedian announced he was hanging up the mic, but on Thursday his management issued a statement to TMZ saying he was frustrated when he made that comment to a Seattle TV station.
"Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour ... Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama. The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward."
Despite his renewed commitment to stand-up, Katt was a no-show for his appearance in Houston last night. Toyota Center officials issued a statement late Friday stating the event was canceled "due to circumstances beyond their control."
Instead of telling jokes in Texas, the troubled 39-year old comic was busy getting arrested in Dunnigan, California. Katt was popped at a gas station Friday after a traffic stop. An arrest warrant had been issued for him out of Sacramento County Thursday for a reckless driving incident that happened in November in which he led Sacramento police on a wild chase while riding a three-wheeled motorcycle.
According to KCRA, Katt will be back in a Sacramento court in January after assault charges were filed against him for slapping a Target employee in the face on the same day he fled from police.
Snoop Dogg told TMZ that he hopes his friend gets some help.
"Katt needs some help. Somebody really needs to sit him down and get him some help," Snoop said. "I'm his friend, I can't clown or laugh at him. I really wanna see him get some help before he goes too far."
