Katt Williams Denies Drawing Gun at Comedy Club

Comedian reportedly got violent with a heckler on Tuesday night.

Published July 3, 2014

Reports of Katt Williams's gun battle at a West Hollywood comedy club aren't what they seem, the comedian tells TMZ. According to Williams, who allegedly pulled a gun on a heckler at Los Angeles comedy hot spot, he was actually the victim of violence, rather than the perpetrator.

Williams claims he was threatened by a group of gang bangers who followed him to his car and assaulted him, even calling him "Cuz" (slang for a member of a rival gang). The actor and comedian claims he never pulled a gun and, in fact, wasn't even carrying a weapon at the time of the incident. 

As for who placed the 911 call that drew six armed police cars to the scene, Williams thinks it was the gang members themselves.
