Comedian Katt Williams allegedly leads police on a tricycle chase in Sacramento
Comedian Katt Williams is under investigation after allegedly leading Capitol Protection CHP officers on a hot pursuit chase in downtown Sacramento on Sunday, according to TMZ.
Williams was spotted driving down K Street when he almost hit five pedestrians on a tricycle. Officers are not amused by the incident, and this most recent escapade could land the comedian behind bars in a Sacramento jail cell.
Sacramento police were first called to the Hyatt hotel Sunday afternoon after a complaint was received that Williams was disturbing the peace. Police arrived and decided not to file charges at that point.
Later in the day, Williams went on to ride his motorized tricycle down the L Street sidewalk and when officers tried to pull him over, he turned down a section of K street closed to traffic.
The comedian just narrowly missed hitting pedestrians and continued down the blocked-off street. Around 10th and L street Williams reportedly stopped his bike, took off his helmet, turned around and yelled, “I’m not going to stop!”
Williams went on to drive down Capital Street at speeds up to 35 mph when CHP called off the pursuit for safety reasons. Williams now faces the possibility of felony evasion.
This particular incident comes as no surprise, as the comedian has been involved in a number of altercations recently.
Williams faces a lawsuit over a recent comedy show on November 16 in which the comedian reportedly, “confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members,” according to the suit.
The show went on to end within ten minutes of it beginning. On November 15th, Williams made headlines for reportedly getting arrested in Oakland, California for his alleged involvement in a club fight.
Earlier in November, Williams was arrested and charged with burglary and criminal trespassing of a Georgia home, according to Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Major James Yarbrough.
Finally, on October 17th Williams was arrested for one of several gun violations he’s racked up, this one outside of Supper Club in Los Angeles earlier that morning.
Williams now faces jail time, multiple lawsuits and an image in serious need of rehabilitation.
