Katt Williams Sued by Tour Manager for Assault and Battery

Claims are the comedian knocked him unconscious.

Published July 18, 2014

It must really pay to be Katt Williams' lawyer these days. The comedian is facing another brush with the law — his third in the past seven days — stemming from his violent temper. According to TMZ, Williams is being sued by his former tour manager Mark Williams (not clear if there's a relation between the two) for assault and battery.

The comedian's former employee claims Katt hit him "with such force and power that he was rendered unconscious for a period of 90 seconds." He adds that Katt was "wearing his diamond rings which served as a brass knuckles weapon."

The lawsuit doesn't detail what caused the ruckus between the comedian and his former manager, who claims he suffered a concussion, loose tooth and unspecified facial and head injuries.
