Comedian Micah "Katt" Williams' offstage antics are becoming less funny all the time. In the latest in a series of recent run-ins with police, he was arrested after an alleged bar dispute in Seattle, which occurred after he failed to show up Thursday for a planned appearance 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.

Williams was booked into the King County jail for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction. Police said he struggled with officers as they arrested him …


According to TMZ,  tour manager Suge Knight bailed him out. But it got worse. Seattle police said some fans alleged that Williams attacked them after they tried to take a photo with him after his Friday show.
