Katt Williams

Katt Williams is apparently having trouble keeping his cool these days.

The comic was nabbed Sunday afternoon in Seattle after getting into a heated dispute with a patron at a local bar.

Seattle Police Department spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee said in a statement that the 39-year-old Williams had stopped into the World Sports Grille, where he ended up getting into a verbal tiff with several individuals, "brandished a pool cue at a bar manager and refused to leave the business."

The funnyman then at one point followed a family outside of the watering hole. 

"As the family got into their car, Williams flicked a cigarette through a car window at a woman, striking her just below her eye," said Spangenthal-Lee. "Williams also threw a rock at the family's car."

When cops arriving on the scene attempted to take him into custody, Williams subsequently resisted arrest.

After the Friday After Next star was finally subdued, he was booked into the nearby King County Jail for investigation of assault, harassment and obstructing police officers. A bail hearing was set for Monday afternoon.

Unfortunately, this wasn't the first disturbance Williams caused in Rain City. 

The entertainer—who was in town for a two-night stand at the Paramount Theater on Thursday and Friday—was MIA for the first show. But after the second on Friday evening, Seattle police were called to the venue when three fans claimed Williams attacked them after they tried to take a photo with him following his set. For his part, Williams denied the accusation, alleging the trio entered his dressing room without permission. No arrests were made.

And just two weeks ago, the comedian was collared by police in Oakland, Calif., on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after an 18-year-old man claimed Williams hit him over the head with a bottle.

A rep for Williams was unavailable for comment.
