Katt Williams is being sued for attacking a limo driver with his dog.

On Saturday Williams was arrested in Portland after limo driver Wali Kanani reported that he picked up the controversial comedian at the Portland International Airport on Friday and was beat up and berated because he refused to allow the funny man’s German Shepherd to sit in the front seat.

Kanani is suing for $76,000 for assault, battery, emotional distress and what he called Williams’ “unconscionable acts and his history of tortious behavior.” The driver said he has cuts, bruises, face swelling, a broken tooth and tinnitus in his ear that causes his ear to ring, according to OregonLive.com.

Williams is reportedly being held in the Multnomah County Detention Center as of Monday evening on suspicion of fourth-degree assault.

Williams appeared in court for arraignment and pleaded not guilty. He has an outstanding warrant in Georgia and won’t be released.

Comedian on the Attack

Kanani’s outlined his side of the incident in his lawsuit saying that he picked up Williams and six other people and a “large, aggressive German Shepherd,” at the Portland airport hangar around 11 p.m. Williams had returned from a taping of Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” improv comedy show.

Williams and his entourage exited a private jet, Kanani said and Williams insisted that his dog sit in the passenger seat of the vehicle.

According to the lawsuit, when Kanani refused and told Williams the dog needed to be seated in the back, Williams called him a “piece of (expletive)” and “white trash” and then punched him in the face.

Williams then chased the man with the dog into the airport terminal. Kanani locked the glass door to keep them away from him, the court papers said.

Kanani ultimately called 911 and was taken to Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center in Tualatin.
