Katt Williams Arrested For Child Endangerment, May Face Felony Charges

katt williams child endangerment arrest 2012

Katt Williams has been arrested for child endangerment in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Police Department sources say.

Katt Williams’ child endangerment arrest comes on the heels of several other unpleasant circumstances for the diminutive comedian, who is having a very bad month overall.

At the start of the month, a video of Williams slapping a Target employee before escaping on an electric cart went viral, and Williams said that the incident occurred because the clerk used a racial epithet to refer to him. (In late November, the comic was also involved in a police chase.)

Before the child endangerment arrest, Katt Williams was also implicated in a bar brawl, kicked out of a hotel, detained by police at a Subway restaurant, and it was revealed the stand-up also was hit with a $4 million tax lien.

According to TMZ, sources at the LAPD say Katt Williams’ child endangerment arrest may lead to a felony charge, and involves the actor’s four children:

“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … LAPD cops picked Katt up at his Woodland Hills home this morning, after an investigation from the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services concluded there were numerous guns and illegal drugs in the house that created a safety hazard for the kids …”

“Our sources say … during the arrest various items were seized.”

Per the TMZ report, Williams is still being held on $100,000 bail, and all four of the kids have been placed in protective custody.

It was not initially reported what may have led to Katt Williams’ arrest for child endangerment, and the precipitate may remain undisclosed by law enforcement due to the involvement of minors.

    I think Katt Williams needs some jail time to dry out away from the drugs and think about what he's been doing.We live in the same town Woodland Hills.And now he has four of his children in protective custody because he had illegal drugs and unsecured weapons around the house.I hope he gets his act together but he's behaving like a fool.Not paying taxes and getting into police chases and slapping people.A few months in jail would calm him down or a couple of years in prison if that doesn't slow him down.At least a rehab center for 90 days.
