Katt Williams -- I Was a Guest, Not a Burglar!

11/9/2009 5:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katt Williams was not burglarizing anyone and his arrest for same is totally bogus -- according to Katt's lawyer.

Katt Williams

William Briggs
told TMZ Katt was in Georgia shooting a movie, staying at the property of a friend and the movie's producer, Barry Hankerson.

Briggs says the reason his client was busted is because he was involved in a dispute with one of Barry's employees who lives in the guesthouse. The vengeful employee called the cops and reported a faux burglary, Briggs says. Briggs adds Katt had "full permission" to be on the property and has been staying there for the last 3 weeks.

Katt is still in custody. There's a bail hearing set for 4 PM ET.

UPDATE
: Katt's bond was set at $41,150.

I hope he sues the person who filed the false charge. If this person was in the guest house, then they should've acted as a guest and stayed in their place.
It's hard to believe that Kat Williams is on 36 years old.

Katt Wiliams is a wonderful stand up comic. He has done some movies, but to me, his true calling are his stand ups. This is not some whoever. He is well known.

I love Katt. He can get folks to come together with his routine. He is not a criminal by no means. I have a feeling this is bogus.


I love ya Katt!

The employee should be fired and be charged with filing a false report. Then he should have his testicles squeezed with a pair of pliers.
