Katt Williams Questioned by Police Over Best Buy Shoplifting Allegations (Report)

The comic was not arrested, though a suspected member of his party was cited for a “minor misdemeanor.”

Katt Williams had yet another run-in with the law on Wednesday, Nov. 16 over an alleged shoplifting incident.

The comic was questioned by police outside an Ohio Best Buy, regarding suspicions that a member of his entourage had attempted to steal several items, reports TMZ.  Though Williams was not arrested, one member of the group was cited for a “minor misdemeanor.”

Williams has had a number of legal woes over the years, including a June 2011 arrest in which he allegedly assaulted a tractor driver.

Williams is perhaps best known for a series of stand-up specials, and roles in Norbit, Friday After Next and The Tracy Morgan Show. He most recently lent his voice to Warner Bros.’ 2010 family film, Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.
