Comedian Katt Williams, who was recently arrested this past weekend, has come forward to explain what exactly happened that night. Katt explains that he has no reason to steal due to his substancial wealth, saying:
“I did not steal when I was homeless, if I did not steal when I was starving, then I certainly will not steal $3,500 worth of jewelry, while you are wearing $250,000 worth of jewelry. They misunderstood. They thought that I was an average typical negro. I am no such a thing. I don’t talk like it. I don’t act like it. I don’t walk like it and I don’t hang with people that do…Now if there is some crime that I committed then I will be locked up but if not you are assaulting someone that shouldn’t be assaulted and I think you are picking on the wrong one…They said I was bankrupt. The same day they said I was bankrupt I got a check for “Pimpin Pimpin” for 1.4 million dollars. I haven’t cashed it. I still got it! Then last week Katt Williams “Pimpadelic” sold 1.6 million dollars. I’m trying to figure out how a n**ga with 3 million dollars is stealing $3500 worth of jewelry in Coweta County, Georgia, while he rides around in a Bentley. I don’t understand it.”
Katt was charged wtih burglary and criminal trespassing and his bond was set at $41, 150. He was arrested after a man named Daniel Broach told police Katt used a crowbar to break into his home and stole $3,500 worth of jewlery.
Katt’s attorney also issued a statement on his behalf saying:
“The case is still under investigation. We believe this is a — contract dispute. Katt is actually leasing the property he has been accused of burglarizing as well as trespassing on. We are sure this will be worked out.”
