Katt Williams Faces Michigan Judge Over Stun Guns, Posts $50k Bond

The working

condition of two stun guns will be the deciding factor for comedian Katt Williams,

who could stand trial on two counts of possession of an illegal weapon in a Kalamazoo,

Mich. courtroom.

Kalamazoo County District Judge Vincent Westra issued an order to test two stun

guns to see if they were in working order when Williams attempted to board a plane

at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport last year.The

charges spring from an Oct. 28, 2005 incident in which the two taser guns were

found in Williams’ checked luggage as he was leaving the airport. Although

the comedian (born Micah S. Williams) was not arrested, the Kalamazoo Gazette

reports that police submitted the case to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office

and Williams was charged last November.Williams,

a fixture on the hit MTV show Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out,

was unaware of the warrant until a Nov. 6, 2006 arrest in California, according

to prosecutors. In

that incident, a stolen handgun and three other weapons were found in bags the

35-year-old funnyman had checked in at the Los Angeles International Airport.During

Tuesday’s hearing, Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department deputy Lori Bittle

testified that after a security officer found the stun guns at the Kalamazoo airport

in 2005, Williams told her he carried them for protection and didn’t know they

were illegal in Michigan. Williams,

who recently hosted BET’s Hip-Hop Awards, arrived to the courthouse yesterday

in a stretched black limousine. The

comedian posted

$50,000 bond and will not have to appear for a Dec. 20 hearing.Williams

is facing up to four years in prison or a $2,000 fine.
