Report on Katt Williams' alleged outlandish driving to go to Sacramento DA

Comedian Katt Williams' legal problems continue as CHP officers prepare reports related to his alleged strange behavior in Sacramento over the weekend.

Williams, an actor and stand-up comedian, has been in trouble with the law before. He was found in 2006 with a stolen gun in his briefcase at Los Angeles International and recently had troubles in the Bay area.

He 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 this month.

The aborted performance came two days after he was arrested on charges of attacking an aspiring rapper on his tour bus outside a downtown Oakland hotel, according to the Associated Press.

Now, a report is being compiled to submit to the district attorney about his actions in downtown. Williams was in Sacramento for a Friday concert.

Then, on Sunday at 2:30 p.m., a CHP officer stopped near Capitol Park noticed a three-wheeled motorcycle driving on an L Street sidewalk. The driver then hung a left on 13th onto K Street.

The motorcycle driver went onto K Street where motor vehicles are not allowed. The motorcyclist, later identified as Micah S. "Katt" Williams, allegedly almost hit five pedestrians.

That prompted a now-pursuing CHP officer to turn on lights and siren. Williams then made his way back to L Street, stopping a red light at 10th Street.

According to the CHP Officer Sean Kennedy, Williams then took off his helmet, turned toward officers and proclaimed: "I'm not going to stop."

Williams is then said to have accelerated to 35 mph and run several red lights. Once on Capitol Mall, he drove eastbound in the westbound lanes, Kennedy said.

Shortly after that, the officers discontinued the pursuit of the motorcycle, which had paper license plates, for safety reasons. Moments later, CHP officers were contacted by Sacramento Police Department bicycle unit officers who told them they saw the pursuit and knew the motorcyclist's name.

They told CHP officers that Williams had earlier been contacted on a disturbing the peace call at the Hyatt Hotel. He was not charged at the time, but he was kicked off the premises.

"Our officers gathered the Sacramento Police Department's information and they are in the process of completing a complaint to be filed for an arrest report for felony evading against Williams," said Kennedy.
