Katt Williams Released From Jail, Won’t Be Extradited To Georgia Over Warrant

Katt Williams is no longer behind bars after an alleged altercation with a driver over the weekend. As reported, Williams allegedly assaulted his driver in Portland, OR. which resulted in his arrest. It was later discovered that Williams had a warrant for his arrest in Georgia for failure to appear in court. TMZ would share that the veteran comedian had no idea he had a court appearance as we would travel to Los Angeles to pick up an EMMY for his role in season 2 of ‘Atlanta FX’.

Katt Williams is a free man again — and it looks like it’ll stay that way for the short-term, ’cause he got a pass from prosecutors in Georgia … TMZ has learned. Law enforcement in Multnomah County, Oregon tells us Katt was released from jail at around 2 PM PT. He’d been cooling off in a cell since getting arrested Saturday for allegedly assaulting a driver. We’re told he was cut loose after authorities in Hall County, GA declined to extradite the comedian for failing to appear in court last month….It’s unclear why the Hall County D.A. decided not to drag him back to GA, but it’s a stroke of good luck — for a change — for Katt.
