UPDATE: 10:25 a.m. | Stand-up comedian Micah “Katt” Williams was arrested in Seattle Sunday afternoon after he allegedly got into a dispute at a bar in South Lake Union.
Williams’ arrest came after his no-show Thursday for the first night of a planned two-night engagement at the Paramount Theatre.
On Sunday, Seattle police said Williams, 41, was at the World Sports Grille near Ninth Avenue North and Westlake Avenue North at about 2:30 p.m. when he allegedly exchanged words with other patrons, brandished a pool cue at the bar’s manager and refused to leave. Police also allege that Williams followed a family out of the bar, flicked a cigarette through the window of the family’s car, and threw a rock at the vehicle. The cigarette hit one of the family members just below her eye, police said.
