We get it. Katt Williams is zany, and outrageous, and will do anything for a laugh, like the comedian he is. Sometimes we can't even help but laugh at his crazy antics, like last week when he evaded police on a speedy motorized tricycle; that was pretty funny. But there's nothing even slightly humorous about new video footage that has surfaced from that day of Williams slapping a Target employee in the face.
Apparently the tricycle ride through Sacramento wasn't enough excitement for one day for him. According to TMZ, after that he headed to a local Target and for some reason slapped a worker there before making an escape on one of the store's electric carts. Sources say he then ditched that and hopped back on his tricycle. The dude certainly has a penchant for motorized vehicles.
You can't tell from the video what's being said, as there's no audio, but the employee appears pretty calm. Williams seems agitated and out of control. Check it out after the jump and see what you think.
TMZ has another video of the employee calling police and telling them what went down. So hopefully Williams will face some criminal charges here in addition to those he may face for evading police on the tricycle. It's not like these would be his first offenses, and someone or something has got to calm this guy down. This wild day comes on the heels of numerous other incidents in which he's been involved in fights and nabbed for a gun violation.
I don't know if he has anger issues, drug and alcohol issues, or just issues in general. But he apparently needs help of some kind, which may mean some serious legal repercussions and not just more laughing off of his antics.
Comedians are notorious for pushing limits and going to extreme lengths to get a laugh. And that's all well and good ... up to a point. When that point involves harming other people or spiraling out of control before our eyes then that's going way too far, and no one should be laughing.
Do you think Katt Williams should face criminal charges for slapping this employee?
