Comedian Katt Williams in bizarre police pursuit in Sacramento

Katt Williams

Comedian Katt Williams led police on a bizarre chase Sunday on the streets of downtown Sacramento.

Authorities originally contacted Williams near the Hyatt along L Street. He was asked to leave for disturbing the peace. He did, but was soon spotted by Capitol Protection Officers.

Williams was allegedly driving a three-wheeled motorcycle on a sidewalk, coming close to hitting pedestrians.

At this point, Capitol Protection Officers were flashing their lights for him to stop, according to Fox 40.

Williams then ran several more red lights and was not cited, with officers worrying about public safety if they continued the chase, police said.

Capital Protection said they would file a complaint against Williams, who has appeared in several movies.
