Find Out the Crazy Reason Katt Williams Is Behind Bars – Again – With No Bail

It involves a young woman, his bodyguard and a hostage situation.

Looks like Katt Williams's wild streak has come to an end. The troubled comedian is behind bars, without bail, over a crazy situation that involves his body guard, a young woman and a hostage situation.

According to a news release issued by the Hall County sheriff, Williams was arrested Tuesday afternoon after allegedly beating down one of his own bodyguards after the man refused to “engage in criminal activity as directed by Williams." He was booked on charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and terroristic threats, as well as felony possession of marijuana and fire arms, which were found in his home.
Katt's bodyguard Corey Dixon was taken to Williams's house late last month and beaten with a baseball bat and choked by 24-year-old Tatiana Smith (who was also arrested), the release says. According to authorities, Williams himself also threatened to kill the bodyguard during the attack.
The attack on the bodyguard happened on the same day, February 28, Williams and a crew of 15 people allegedly robbed five women at gunpoint. The very next day, the 29th, Williams was arrested for punching a pool store employee who allegedly used the n-word on him.
If that isn't enough to deal with, the comedian also got into it at a hip hop show in Philadelphia, punching a man in the face and starting a brawl, just days after he got into a fight in the streets of Los Angeles.
