The day after comedian Katt Williams was arrested for burglary and criminal trespassing in Georgia following an alleged home invasion, details about the incident continue to trickle out.
Williams was said to have a crowbar when he entered a home in Newnan, about 40 miles southwest of Atlanta, according to local police cited in an Associated Press story. He allegedly stole $3,555 in jewelry and collectable coins. The victim, identified in a police report as Daniel Broach, called police around 9 p.m. to report the break-in.
The 38-year-old Williams remained jailed Monday (November 9) in suburban Atlanta after a Coweta County judge set bond at more than $41,000 during a court hearing.
The comedian's lawyer, William Briggs, told TMZ his client had been staying for three weeks with "full permission" on the property of producer Barry Hankerson while filming a movie. Briggs said that Williams was involved in a dispute with one of Hankerson's employees, who fabricated the incident.
In a recording of a 911 call obtained by TMZ, the caller says Williams wouldn't let him leave and "threatened to beat me up." The caller also said he wasn't sure if Williams had a weapon.
Williams was admitted to a psych ward in South Carolina last November and was arrested on gun charges in New York before performing hours later at Carnegie Hall. Prosecutors later dropped the charges after encountering problems proving their case. The comedian also skipped his scheduled hosting duties at the 2008 BET Hip-Hop Awards and an appearance on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien."
