Katt Williams will serve three years probation for punching a restaurant employee.
Almost every headline about Katt Williams in 2016 was negative and cited legal trouble. At the beginning of this month we had received news that the comedian was banned from two counties in Georgia and sentenced to five years of probation for an assault case involving his body guard. In September he was arrested for criminal property damage in relation to an incident that transpired in February. Not to mention his involvement in the infamous fight with a teenage boy or the onstage brawl at a Beany Sigel concert, William's hands have been full dealing with another restaurant incident where he threw a salt shaker at the manager.
Today in Los Angeles, the comedian was sentenced to three years probation for another incident stemming from an assault in a restaurant, back in July, when he punched a woman for allegedly disrespecting him. According to a report from TMZ, Williams pled no contest to the assault and battery charges and paid a $390 fine to avoid a three-day stint in jail.
While this is a bit of closure for the comedian, he still currently faces charges for robbery, for an incident involving himself, Suge Knight and a celebrity photographer.
We are all praying that William's takes care of all his legal trouble and gets back to being the funny comic we all know and love in 2017.
