Katt Williams Has Unretired Ya'll and Misses His Court Hearing


Just like Michael Jordan, Jay-Z, Evander Holyfield and Brett Favre ... comedian Katt Williams is officially UNRETIRING ... just four days after retiring.

Earlier this week, a very emotional Katt announced his retirement on a street corner in Seattle ... insisting that he was, "kinda done."

But now, Katt's management team says he's undone ... telling us, "Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour ... Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama."

Management adds, "The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward."

Katt has also not retired from dealing with court ... TMZ has learned Williams was just charged with 2 counts of 4th degree misdemeanor assault in Seattle stemming from a bar fight this past weekend.

As we reported, Katt was arrested Sunday after allegedly threatening the bar manager with a pool cue and refusing to leave the establishment ... then later throwing a cigarette at a woman's eye.

Police claim Katt also threw a rock at the woman's car as she left.

Of course, this is just one incident in Katt's long string of bizarre behavior recently, including slapping a Target employee and leading Sacramento police on a wild three-wheeled motorcycle chase.

Stand-up comedian Micah ”Katt” Williams was a no-show at his arraignment this morning in Seattle Municipal Court.

Williams’ attorney, Thomas McAllister, told the judge his client was under the impression that he did not have to appear at the arraignment and has returned to California. McAllister said that Williams read a Seattle Times story in which a spokeswoman for the City Attorney’s Office said that he did not have to personally appear if an attorney was in court on his behalf.

Municipal Court Judge Willie Gregory agreed that there appeared to be some confusion. He rescheduled the arraignment for Tuesday.

Williams spent an eventful weekend in Seattle that included several alleged run-ins with people and a brief stay in the King County Jail.

Assistant City Attorney Jennifer Miller said she plans to charge Williams today with two counts of fourth-degree assault.

After Williams performed Friday night at the Paramount Theatre, some fans called police, saying Williams had attacked them when they tried to take a photograph with him, according to an item posted on the Seattle Police Department’s online blotter.

Williams told officers the fans had tried to force their way into his dressing room and denied assaulting anyone, the blotter item says. No arrests were made.

Though Williams told officers he planned to cancel his Saturday show and leave town, he stuck around and got into a dispute with a patron of the World Sports Grille on Westlake Avenue North in the South Lake Union neighborhood on Saturday night, according to a police report.

Sunday afternoon, he returned to the World Sports Grille, where he allegedly screamed at patrons, threatened a bar manager with a pool cue, flicked a cigarette in a woman’s face and threw a rock at a car window, police said.

He also is accused of being aggressive with officers, who briefly took Williams to the ground before getting him into the back of a patrol car, according to a police report.

Williams has generated a lot of police attention in recent weeks.

On Nov. 15, Williams was arrested by Oakland, Calif., police after allegedly hitting a man in the head with a bottle on a tour bus parked outside a hotel, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. He was booked into jail on investigation of assault and was released the next day.

Two days after his Oakland arrest, Williams was sued by a concertgoer who said he and hundreds of fans were cheated when Williams took off his clothes and challenged people to fight during a concert in Oakland earlier in November, The Sacramento Bee reported.

On Nov. 25, Williams led a California Highway Patrol officer on a pursuit, driving a three-wheel motorcycle on a sidewalk and running several red lights in Sacramento. The pursuit was called off because of safety concerns, but police identified Williams as the motorcycle driver, The Bee reported.
