Comedian Micah "Katt" Williams was arrested in 2014 along with former rap producer Marion "Suge" Knight on charges that they stole a photographer's camera, leading to both being charged with one count of robbery. Williams has been arrested for various other reasons through the years.
In 2013, Williams was arrested in what the New York Daily News reported was the fifth time in two months after missing his arraignment for charges stemming from a police chase in Sacramento, California. Williams said that he couldn't appear in court that time because he was already due in court for a child custody case in Los Angeles. Police said that the police chase involved Williams riding a three-wheel motorcycle on a sidewalk and running red lights as he fled from police pursuit. Citing public safety concerns, police halted the chase. Officers later arrested him without incident at his home.
Williams had been arrested the previous month after another man accused Williams of hitting him on the head with a bottle in Oakland. Other arrests include one for allegedly starting a fight at a bar in Seattle and one on charges of child endangerment in Los Angeles.
Williams began his career in comedy as a stand-up comic, eventually gaining fame from television appearances on networks such as BET.
