Katt Williams Gets His Punishment In Suge Knight-Related Assault Case
By Mike Winslow.
(AllHipHop News) Troubled comedian Katt Williams has one less legal problem to worry about as his assault with a deadly weapon case has been dismissed.
The 45-year-old allegedly pulled out a firearm during an altercation with an unnamed man after his set at the The Comedy Store in West Hollywood in 2014, but the felony case was thrown out by a judge yesterday (April 25).
The dismissal is tied to the plea deal Williams accepted last week (April 23) for an unrelated robbery case.
Williams and jailed rapper Suge Knight were charged with felony robbery in 2014 for allegedly attempting to grab photographer Leslie Redden’s camera during an incident outside a recording studio in Beverly Hills.
Both had pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
However, Williams recently cut a no-jail plea deal and pleaded no contest to one felony count of second-degree robbery, and was given three years of formal probation and ordered to attend 54 weeks of anger management classes.
