Well, that's not very funny, now is it, Katt Williams?

The famed comedian was reportedly arrested by police Wednesday night on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in downtown Oakland, Calif., (he was in town for a Friday appearance at the Oracle Arena), after an 18-year-old man, whose identity hasn't been disclosed, told officers that Williams had hit him over the head with a bottle.

Police initially got a call about a man bleeding from the head, and proceeded to look for the funnyman after hearing that he was involved with the alleged assault, which took reportedly place in a tour vehicle. 

About half an hour later, authorities found Katt at a nightclub and proceeded to take him into custody.

The relationship between the comic and the 18-year-old Berkeley man and what caused the assault is not known, but police say they were initially told that the young gentleman was a part of a group that got invited back to the tour bus before the confrontation happened. 

Police said Katt was cooperative when taken into custody and was subsequently interviewed this morning, but had not been booked into jail.
