Published January 9, 2013

Katt Williams' rap sheet is getting longer by the day. The trouble-prone comedian has been arrested in Los Angeles for failure to appear in court, TMZ reports. 

Williams faced a bench warrant against an incident in November, when he led police on a wild chase through the streets of Sacramento after a show. Cops ceased the chase at the time, claiming it would have endangered citizens on the street, but vowed to press charges against Williams

Law enforcement reports that cops knew Williams had a warrant against him when they spotted him in Los Angeles today, and promptly took him into custody. They also point out that Williams was cooperative during the arrest. 

He is currently being held on $100,500 bail.
