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 see that some of the people here just read as see what they want to read and see, Katt has had problems in the past but it WASN'T HIM that was suspect it was one of his idiot friends. Why is it when the person is black his friends are his POSSE or his CREW not just a bunch of buddies. If the person was white you'd read "one of his friends “or "one of the acquaintances" with him was questioned and so on. These are just typical words that perpetuate the stereotyping of black people so some can feel justified when they say "these people" and "that's just what they do" When Shia Labeouf got in to one of his many scraps not once was the colour of his skin mentioned, when Winona Ryder was picked up for shoplifting her race was never an issue, when Ben Roethlisberger was accused about RAPE the colour of his skin was never mentioned and they questioned his "friends" not his POSSE, but when Katt's Dbag friend gets questioned we will find groups of people that somehow feel it's an indictment of the entire black race. Blacks can never do anything as individuals, their issues always seem to reflect and entire group of people. When a black person gets into a fight "they all get into fight" When a black person steals "what do you expect they all steal" Some people accuse blacks of playing the race card like racism is a thing of the past. All people need to do is read ANY story that appears on TMZ with a person of colour as the subject and within 8 - 10 comments more often than not the persons race will be made an issue yet other than the odd "white trash" comment made once in a blue moon race is NEVER an issue if the person is white. We have idiots and criminals in every colour and race so let’s stop condemning all for the actions of a few.

MY SON & I WERE THERE WHEN THIS ALL HAPPENED, WHAT ALL THE STORIES HAVE FAILED TO MENTION IS ALL THE STACKS OF KATT'S MONEY 1 SHERIFF WAS CARRYING. IT LOOKED TO ME THAT HE HAD MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING IN THERE.
