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.

Wow ...    

Maybe that woman who is suing for 5 mill does have a case. This guy should not be free to roam the streets until he gets some serious help.

First off it happened around 8pm, not 3am.
Second, Kimball's Carnival is NOT in East Oakland. It is in Jacklon Square.
Third, it wasn't in the actual club, it happened on his bus that was parked at the Marriott. Where a guy was hit upside his head.
Fourth, Kat was cooperative with OPD and hasn't been charged.
Fifth, who really cares? It happened in Oakland, we got like 110 murders to worry about.

I seen and spoke with Mr. Williams at 7pm in a Walgreen's store in Downtown Oakland and asked him the reason he was in Oakland and asked did he have a show he stated no (did he forget his show scheduled Fri Nov16th?) that he just came from a Warriors basketball game o_O...he was visablly high....After my loud mouth recognized and spoke to him then the crowds gathered and he mingled outside with his fans..he had no security, car or entourage with him only a very young girl who had a blank look on her face like she was a robot in tow by Mr Williams....he continued walking down the streets of broadway criss crossing back and forth like he was looking for something..Mr Williams you have disgraced yourself in public and I am quite sure this is not the first time...I was glad to have met and hugged you, but you need help. It would be sad to lose you to drugs. Please get well...

Word around the industry campfire is that there is something wrong with Katt, and not just "he's a douchbag" wrong...

This dude moved into my neighborhood, a few houses away. He has his "boyz" living in a motor home on the street, loud music, guys hanging outside the house, and Hummers (entorage style) several times a day. I hope he stays in there. I'm talking West San Fernando Valley in the Hills, not Compton.

Ok, We got like 110 murders to worry about. So this really isn't news. But if you are going to report on something get your facts straight.
First it did not happen at 3am. It was like 8pm.
Second, Kimball's is NOT in East Oakland but in Jack London Square.
Third, it didn't even happen at the club. It happened near the Marriott.
Fourth, he wasn't even arrensted. He was cooperative and no charges have been filed.
