( 4UMF NEWS ) Katt Williams To Be Charged For Sucker-Punching Teen:
Troubled comedian Katt Williams will be charged for sucker-punching a teen at a soccer game last week, police said.
Warrants have been issued after the 42-year-old comic was caught on video throwing a punch at 17-year-old Luke Wash after the two got into a verbal altercation during a game in Gainesville, Ga., local police told the Daily News on Monday.
Wash then tackled Williams to the ground and put him in a chokehold before the crowd onhand broke up the fight.
Williams will be charged with disorderly conduct and is expected to turn himself in, Gainesville police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook told the News. The latest charges violate the conditions of Williams’ bond on previous charges, meaning his bond will be revoked, Holbrook confirmed.
It’s unclear what sparked the original argument, but Williams apparently told the Georgia teen to “come to the side” of the field to hash things out, according to the boy’s uncle.
“I was like, wow, that’s him,” Cedric Wash told The NewsFriday. “Why is my nephew in a grown man’s face.”
Later that same day, Williams wanted to meet up with the boy again to square off for a second time, Cedric Wash said.
“My nephew told me after the altercation happened, Katt Williams went on Instagram and he told Luke to meet at the same spot so they can fight again.”
Williams then appeared to recount the throwdown to the audience at his Barclays Center show on Friday.
“Even though we’re the same size, you’re a little boy; I’m a grown-a– man,” Williams said in a fan-recorded video. “I just want you to have a bloody mouth so you can have that lesson later — that that’s what happens when you say slick s–t to grown a– men.”
The comedian also clarified that he had thought Wash was 19.
Williams is currently facing charges from three different arrests in recent weeks, including allegedly assaulting a pool store employee and for reportedly attacking his own bodyguard.
