Katt Williams arrested for beating, threatening to kill bodyguard

ATLANTA — Troubled comedian Micah "Katt" Williams has been arrested again for beating and threatening to kill one of his bodyguards.

This comes just days after Williams was arrested for assaulting a pool supply store employee.

According to officials with the Hall County Sheriff's Office, deputies executed a search warrant March 8 at Williams's home on Lake Breeze Lane in Gainesville after it was alleged Williams and several of his associates held Coery Dixon, a bodyguard to Williams, against his will and assaulted him. The alleged incident happened Feb. 28.


Deputies say that Williams, along with 24-year-old Tatiana Smith, choked Dixon and beat him with a baseball bat after he refused to take part in a criminal act at the direction of the comedian.

During the course of the search, deputies say they found large quantities of marijuana along with several firearms.

Authorities have charged both Williams and Tatiana Smith with aggravated assault charges, among others. Another woman, 40-year-old Lena Smith, was in the home while the deputies executed the search warrant. They have charged her with felony counts of possession of marijuana.

All three were transported to the Hall County Jail where they remain without bond. A hearing is set for March 9 at 2 p.m.
