    Katt Williams Arrested in Los Angeles After Failing to Appear in Sacramento Court

    Looks like Katt Williams can officially add another arrest to his erratic track record. 

    The oft-troubled comedian was arrested on an outstanding warrant after skipping out on a Sacramento, Calif., court date, E! News confirms. He has since been released from custody after being held on $100,000 bail.

    A bench warrant was issued in Sacramento for Williams' arrest after he failed to appear in court for his arraignment stemming from his Nov. 25 run-in with the California Highway Patrol after he fled from police on a three-wheeled motorcycle.

    The Scary Movie 5 star's comedic past has been significantly overshadowed by his legal woes as of late.

    Just days before the New Year, Williams was arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment at his Los Angeles-area home, where cops also recovered a loaded gun that had been reported stolen.

    Prior to his child endangerment arrest, the IRS filed a $4 million tax lien against the Friday After Next star. 

    2009 wasn't Katt Williams' best year, either

    And even before that (mind you, we're still in the month of December), the funnyguy was arrested for a bar fight in Seattle.

    Shortly thereafter, he announced he was retiring from stand-up comedy following the endless run-ins with the law plaguing the actor's personal life.
