Comedian Katt Williams' Children Taken From Him After Arrest Over Guns
Something tells me that comedian Katt Williams won't mind saying goodbye to 2012. Though the way he's going, the new year isn't likely to be much better. Katt has been arrested -- again! -- this time on child endangerment charges. His house was raided by police and reportedly numerous guns and illegal drugs were found. TMZ caught up to him after his bail and he doesn't seem very contrite. In fact, he asked, "How do you keep kids safe without guns?"
In the video, Katt says, "They took my children from me. How terrible is that?" The videographer asks about the guns found in his home and Katt says what sounds like, "They'll always find guns, I never leave without it, girlfriend." He denies that he had drugs in the home, as was reported.
The TMZ reporter then asks him if he thinks it's safe to have guns around kids. He replies: "How do you keep kids safe without guns?" And claims the guns were in a lock box that the police broke. He also alleges that the police have been to his house nine times.
Katt has one biological child and adopted seven more. That sounds like a fantastic kind of guy -- so why can't he stay out of trouble? So far, it's been a laundry list of bizarre episodes with him. A brief rundown: He slapped a Target employee, is being sued for $5 million by a former assistant who alleges he punched her, he led cops on a chase through Sacramento while riding a three-wheeled motorcycle, he was arrested after a bar fight in Seattle, has other assault charges against him with weapons ranging from rocks to cigarette butts, and, well, I don't want to be here all day. Let's just say this guy has had a busy year. And not busy in a good way.
Asked by TMZ if he has any New Year's Eve resolutions, he cracks: "Yeah, be white."
Heh. Good one, Katt. Guess you are a comedian.
Do you think what Katt says about kids and guns is true or just as screwy as everything else he's done?
