Katt Williams has been in and out of jail on numerous occasions for the past several months now and at several points fans have wondered when the troubled comedian would finally stop getting into trouble with the law. And although there’s not a real answer for that, it does look like Williams caught a break recently as reports have revealed that he was miraculously able to avoid jail time in Georgia.
According to media reports, Williams had a court case in Hall County, Georgia, recently over charges of terror threats and false imprisonment after a March incident in which he allegedly threatened to kill his bodyguard, Corey Dixon, for not “engaging in criminal activity.” After being threatened, Dixon claims that Williams ordered a group of people to beat him with a baseball bat and choke him.
The D.A. in the case filed a motion to revoke Williams’ bond and the superstar comedian was fighting to stay out of jail. The hearing reportedly happened yesterday and three subpoenaed witnesses were supposed to show up and testify against Williams.
However, the comedian got lucky because none of the witnesses showed up to court, leaving the prosecution with a crippled case. Because of their failure to show up, the D.A. decided to withdraw the motion to revoke Williams’ bond.
What’s also noteworthy is that Williams wasn’t even in court yesterday as the drama with the witnesses unfolded
Unfortunately, this is just one of many run-ins with the law that Williams has had recently.
Most recently, Williams was arrested in April when he threw a salt shaker into the face of a manager at Spondivits seafood restaurant in Atlanta. Before that, Williams was also arrested for fighting a 17-year-old boy on camera, and he’s also facing a lawsuit from a group of women who claim that he assaulted them.
