Comedian Katt Williams pointed gun at 5 women in Atlanta
New allegations surfaced Wednesday against embattled comedian Katt Williams, who was arrested Monday on a battery charge in Georgia after a Gainesville store employee told police Williams punched him during an argument.
At a Wednesday afternoon press conference in front of Atlanta police headquarters, attorney Loletha Hale accused Williams and about 15 members of his entourage and security team of physically attacking and stealing cellphones from five women visiting Atlanta for the weekend. She also took aim at Atlanta police, claiming they have failed to adequately investigate the incident.
“The police should have conducted a thorough investigation,” Hale said as four of the five women stood behind her. “They should have retrieved these young ladies’ cellphones at the very least.”
