Uh oh. Looks like Kevin Hart isn't the only one Katt Williams is beefing with this week. The comedian was arrested in a pool supply store in Gainesville, Georgia, after reportedly punching a store employee in his face. 

Police officers responded to an assault call at Leslie’s Pool Supplies around 11:30 a.m. and found Williams outside “lying on the ground with his hands behind his back as though he was ready to go to jail,” Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said. According to the Gainesville Times, a store employee told officers that Williams, who was in the store with two women, began arguing with the employee and threw a pair of goggles at him. He then went behind the counter and punched the employee at least once.

The circumstances of the argument and the assault are still not clear. Cops said Williams "was not forthcoming with any information" since his arrest. Williams was charged with misdemeanor battery and released on $5,000 bond.
