Comedian Katt Williams was arrested in Woodland Hills after he failed to show up for a court date in Sacramento.

He was taken into custody around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday at his home in the 22500 block of Quinta Road, according to the LAPD.

Williams was due to appear in court in Sacramento for allegedly driving a three-wheeler up on a sidewalk and failing to stop for police. Los Angeles police were aware of the bench warrant and took him into custody after observing him outside his home.

Williams, 51, whose real name is Micah Sierra Williams, was being held on $100,500 bail. This marks his seventh arrest in the last 26 months.
