Comedian Katt Williams a no-show in court; arrest warrant issued
Williams faces felony reckless evasion charges stemming from a November incident in downtown Sacramento, where he led Capitol Protection officers on a chase.
After he failed to show up on Tuesday, a Sacramento County judge issued a $200,000 warrant for Williams’ arrest.
LAPD officers arrested Williams earlier this month on Jan. 8 at his Woodland Hills home when he failed to appear for a court hearing in Sacramento. Los Angeles police took him into custody after observing him outside his home because they were aware of the bench warrant.
Williams announced his retirement from stand-up comedy in December after being arrested in Seattle. His most recent stand-up tour was fraught with controversy.
