Attorney: Comedian Katt Williams assaulted five women, Atlanta officers did nothing


ATLANTA -- Just days after being jailed on allegations of battery against a pool supply store employee, comedian Katt Williams is facing new assertions connected to a previous incident.

And attorneys are also pulling the Atlanta Police Department into the mix, alleging officers let the comedy star go without charges or proper investigation.

Representatives with Hale Law Firm held a press conference on Wednesday regarding the Feb. 28 incident alleging Williams pointed a gun at five women and proceeded to attack, detain and rob them of their cell phones, identification and bank cards. 

"We feel that clearly Mr. Williams is totally out of control," Attorney Loletha Hale said.

Hale said he and his entourage were also accused of holding the women hostage in a vehicle and "flashing gang signs."

Attorneys said the woman called 911 several times before police arrived. And when they did, the woman claim little was done despite "physical evidence showing they were physically attacked and their property stolen."

The women also contend that no action was taken to return their stolen items.

They said Williams was handcuffed but soon released after little investigation of the incident and that he spat on the women as he left the scene.

It was the next day that Williams was arrested in Gainesville for the store employee's assault and charged with misdemeanor battery.

Representatives for the five women believe this incident could have been avoided had proper action been taken in their own case.

As it turns out, the alleged run-in with the five women in Atlanta wasn't the first report involving Williams that night.

A separate report was taken not long before that. In it, a man inside a club reported that Williams punched him three times in the face and slapped a cell phone out of his hand as he was trying to record video of the comedian.
