    Katt Williams Jailed After Being Arrested on Suspicion of Child Endangerment

    This has not been Katt Williams' year. Heck, this hasn't even been his day!

    The possibly retired comedian was arrested this morning at his Los Angeles-area home on suspicion of felony child endangerment and remains in custody, police confirm to E! News.

    Details of alleged wrongdoing involving minors are pretty much always kept confidential; his booking sheet notes that he is being held at the LAPD's Valley Jail in Van Nuys in lieu of $100,000 bail.

    2009 wasn't Katt Williams' best year, either

    Williams' attorney, Thomas McAllister, had no comment at this time.

    The bust went down at 8:30 a.m., right around when news outlets were learning that the IRS filed a $4 million tax lien against the Friday After Next star on Dec. 18.

    Williams has had the following brushes with the law during the past few months: parking infractiondriving issuebar fight, hotel disturbance and gun violation.

    At least this year is almost over. May he get the fresh start he seems to need.
