Funnyman Katt Williams has found himself JammedUp with the law, yet again, after he reportedly attacked a woman at a hotel restaurant in California.

The famous comedian has been arrested numerous times in recent years. This time, an employee with minor injuries requested that cops arrest Williams for battery.

According to TMZ, Williams, 44, is currently in police custody and has been charged with misdemeanor battery, and is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.

Williams was arrested in February after he reportedly assaulted a pool store employee. He was charged in Florida with battery, hindering a 911 call and disorderly conduct after he flung a pair of goggles at the man and then punched him in the face.

Gainesville Police Sgt., Kevin Holbrook, said that when authorities arrived at the store, Williams was “lying on the ground with his hands behind his back as though he was ready to go to jail.” He was booked and subsequently released on $5,000 bail.

Williams run in with the law did not end there, however, he was arrested three times in March alone. Video surfaced of the man engaged in a fist fight with 17-year-old Luke Walsh–who is a seventh grader, despite his age–which led police to charge Williams with disorderly conduct.

When Williams appeared in court, Judge Elizabeth Reisman told him, “I really don’t think you want to see me anymore and I don’t want to see you back in my court.”

Also in early March, the former comedian was arrested on charges of terrorist threats, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment after an episode in Georgia where he reportedly threatened to kill an individual that police believe was Williams’ bodyguard.

The alleged bodyguard, Corey Dixon, informed police that after he refused to commit a crime at Williams’ request, he took him back to his home where he told a female friend to choke him and beat him with a bat.

According to the Daily Mail, Deputy Nicole Bailes reported that while this was happening, Williams had a gun and was threatening to kill Dixon.

Williams was arrested and posted $60,000 bail. Additionally, he was required to surrender his passport, to refrain from alcohol and drugs, not possess any firearms.

Authorities also announced that when officers searched his home while investigating the altercation with Dixon, they discovered both guns and a significant amount of marijuana.

Members of the entertainer’s family also claimed that he was naked and covered in chocolate when officers raided his home. TMZ later reported that the comedian confirmed this, saying that he “likes a b**** to lick it off him before he gets f***** to sleep.”

Williams’ is also scheduled to face trial in an L.A. courtroom sometime in the near future for a robbery that occurred back in 2014 after a photographer blamed Williams and rapper Suge Knight of stealing her camera. Knight, who is already in prison awaiting trial for murder, has also been charged with threatening the photographer. Both men have pleaded not guilty in the case.

The comedian is also facing a possible battery charge in California after he assaulted a man outside of his hotel back in April. Williams instead told authorities that he was inside his room when he saw a car crash outside and ran down to help. He then claimed a group of tall “rappers” began to make fun of his height, after which Williams told the man to shut up and was punched in the face leading him to fight back in self-defense.

The myriad of other charges that the rapper has faced since 2006 includes burglary and criminal trespass, carrying a concealed firearm, felony intimidation of a witness, assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment, and multiple others. Despite the long list of charges, Williams’ has somehow avoided serving any significant amount of time in prison.
