Katt Williams

Questioned By Police

After Alleged Theft at Best Buy

11/16/2011 5:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

katt williams arrested
More legal drama for Katt Williams ... TMZ has learned the comic and a female companion were questioned by police in Ohio today over an alleged shoplifting incident at a Best Buy store ... but this time, Katt was NOT arrested.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops were dispatched to the Best Buy in Coleraine, OH after receiving a call about a person, who appeared to be in Katt's crew, pocketing several items off the shelves.

Once police arrived to the scene, we're told cops questioned Katt, his female friend and other suspected posse members.

We're told .... after a brief investigation, Katt was NOT arrested -- neither was the woman -- but someone in the group was cited for a "minor misdemeanor." 

Katt has a long, storied history with cops -- earlier this year he was arrested after a standoff with a tractor driver ... and before that, he faced off with the boys in blue in Beverly Hills after getting into a shouting match with another dude.

A rep for Katt had no comment.

I'd give him 90 days based solely on that chain Katt's got around his neck.


Another week or so, and for the ear ring (s).


Men with ear rings on confuse me.


Cuz I don't know what they're trying to say.

You would think Katt Williams is paying his "so-called" EMPLOYEES more than enough money so they "WOULDN'T" have to "STEAL"!!! I love this man's comedy but "HE" shouldn't allow those around him to "TARNISH" his "somewhat" QUESTIONABLE reputation!!! Katt "ISN'T" in the same comedic "STRATOSPHERE" with Eddie Murphy, so "WHY" does he need an "ENTOURAGE"??? Kicking the "RIFF RAFF" to curve would actually SAVE him some "MONEY"!!! WAKE UP KATT!!!

Lisa Lampanelli had the best line ever on Kat - "man, it's hard to be a pimp when you gotta stand on a phone book to smack a bitch"
