Katt Williams No Show For Hearing, But Only Joking About Quitting Comedy

The comedian Katt Williams, who has been in trouble with the police recently after a series of violent and odd run-ins, was a no show at an arraignment hearing in Seattle to face assault charges, The Huffington Post reports.

Thomas McAllister - Williams' attorney - told the judge on Thursday that his client was under the impression that he wasn't required to attend the hearing, citing information from an as yet unknown Seattle Times article. Municipal Court Judge Willie Gregory agreed that there appeared to be some confusion. He rescheduled the arraignment for Wednesday. Williams was charged today with three misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree assault stemming from two incidents. He also is accused of being aggressive with officers, who briefly took Williams to the ground before getting him into the back of a patrol car, according to a police report.

In other news, but still directly related to his troubles with the law, Williams recently said he'd be quitting stand up comedy and even tried to buy a massive boat to live on, but apparently, he wasn't being serious. His management, according to TMZ, said "Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour ... Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama." They add, "The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans  outstanding shows from this point forward."
