Police Reportedly Recovered A Stolen Gun At Katt Williams' House
Two days after Katt Williams was arrested and charged with child endangerment following a welfare check conducted by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, the comedianís perilous legal situation has somehow gotten even worse. Authorities are now saying one of the several guns recovered from his home was previously reported stolen.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Williams has officially been charged with possession of a stolen firearm, though itís unclear whether the district attorney will more aggressively move forward on that count or the child endangerment count since theyíre only vaguely related. Further, itís not even clear whether this charge will even matter given how many other outstanding charges and still being investigated cases the comedian has hanging over this head.
Since Williamsí initial arrest following the welfare check, he publically said heís a law-abiding American who is allowed to own guns and shouldnít be hassled for exercising his right to do so. This whole stolen gun allegation, however, puts a new wrinkle on the situation. Authorities havenít released details yet on who the weapon was supposedly taken from or why it might have wound up in Williamsí possession, but if they start talking in specifics, weíll let you know what the story is.
I donít know whatís going on with Katt right now. He kept his nose at least relatively clean for most of his life, but for the past few months, itís like heís been intentionally seeking out problems. Hereís to hoping he gets it together sooner rather than later.
