After being charged with burglary and criminal trespassing in Coweta County, Georgia, on Sunday, comedian Katt Williams was released on $41,150 bond on Monday afternoon, according to TMZ. The "Wild 'N Out" alumnus reportedly had a crowbar when he entered a home in Newman, Georgia, from which he allegedly stole $3,555 in jewelry and collectible coins.
A lawyer for the comedian (born Micah Williams) told TMZ that his client had been staying at the home of producer Barry Hankerson while filming a movie in the area. Attorney William Briggs added that his client was involved in a dispute with one of Hankerson's employees, who fabricated the incident, Briggs claimed.
In a recording of a 911 call obtained by TMZ, the home owner, Daniel Broach, 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, shortly after being arrested on gun charges in New York. 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."
