Comedian Katt Williams was arrested by police in Oakland last night ... in connection with a fight at a club ... TMZ has learned.

Katt was arrested outside Kimball's Carnival in East Oakland around 3 AM. The details surrounding the alleged battery are unclear.

Sources tell us ... Katt was brought to a police station for questioning. He has not yet been released.

Williams is no stranger to the police -- he was detained in L.A. back in October after allegedly pulling a gun on actor Faizon Love. He was released from custody without charges.

Cops in Atlanta had also issued an arrest warrant for Katt back in 2010 over an alleged battery at a 4 Seasons Hotel.

Such a drag - used to really like this guy. His standup is hilarious, but too much crap in the news about him. Get your **** together, Katt. Did they take his kids away from him yet? I used to respect him for raising his kids, but I hope they're not exposed to this nonsense. C'mon, Katt ... we're in your corner, dude.

Katt Williams needs the see a doctor. Everybody knows this man needs medication. He has more issues than "Napoleon syndrome". It's so sad to see another one biting the dust. SMH!

These kind of comments make me sad. People don't just act a fool and risk their entire lives because they have nothing better to do! People hurt! Having money obviously doesn't change that. Not a fair-weather fan. Wishing, hoping & praying that it all works out.....

This is hilarious. Not only does Katt choose Oakland to get arrested, but over @ Kimball's?? I go to that bar all the time. This is too funny.

Oakland is NOT a good place to be after dark. And many areas aren't safe during the daytime either. Lots of homicides within 10 miles of here every year. WTF are you doing there at 3am??

Americans need to control themselves. You are living in a communal civilization, try and be a bit civilized about it.

When ya really get down to it...he's simply another uncivilized black guy running around on the loose. All you have to do is just listen to 5 minutes of his so-called standup comedy (supposed) routine. Notice any vulgarity? Overwhelming vulgarity. The character associated with the skreet coming through loud and clear.

Get your facts strait. First of all, Kimballs Carnival is not in East Oakland. It's downtown near Jack London Square (NO WHERE NEAR EAST OAKLAND)
Also, He was questioned at his hotel. No arrests were made! I was there! Where do you get your information from, or do you make your money on spreading lies? Get your sh!t together... Parasites!
