Comedian Micah “Katt” Williams was arrested Sunday afternoon after he was involved in a fracas at a South Lake Union bar, Seattle police said.
Officers were called to the World Sports Grille near Ninth Avenue North and Westlake Avenue following a report of a dispute involving Williams and another patron at the bar, department spokesman Jonah Spagenthal-Lee said in a statement. Williams, a Los Angeles-based comedian who recently was parodied on “Saturday Night Live,” was scheduled to perform at the Paramount Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but missed his Thursday show.
“During the incident Williams exchanged words with patrons in the bar, brandished a pool cue at a bar manager and refused to leave the business,” Spagenthal-Lee said. “At one point during the altercation, Williams followed a family outside of the bar where, as the family got into their car, Williams flicked a cigarette through a car window at a woman, striking her just below her eye.
“Williams also threw a rock at the family’s car.”
“Following Williams’ Friday evening show, Williams was involved in an altercation with three fans,” Spagenthal-Lee said. “The fans claimed Williams had attacked them after they tried to take a photo with him after the show. However, Williams claimed the fans had forced their way into his dressing room, and denied assaulting anyone.”
No arrests were made in that incident.
“Following the incident, Williams told officers he planned to cancel his Saturday night show, and head out of town,” Spagenthal-Lee said.
