Katt Williams

Slaps Target Employee

IN THE FACE [VIDEO]

What did the 5 fingers say to the face? Ask the guy who got PIMP SLAPPED by Katt Williams.

Katt
wasn't done after leading cops on a crazy three-wheeled chase through Sacramento on Sunday -- because moments later, he hit up a Target ... where he belted an employee IN THE FACE ... and TMZ has footage of the face-to-hand contact.

There's no audio, so we can't tell what the argument is about -- but by the looks of the employee's body language before the wallop (placing his hand on his chest) the guy wasn't looking for a fight.

Then out of nowhere Katt winds up and slaps him in the face -- at which point the employee pulls out his phone and, according to an eye witness, he calls police.

Video of the aftermath surfaced on the Internet this week, showing Katt making his getaway in an electric cart ... before police arrive. We hate to say it, but it's hilarious.



According to sources at the store, Katt then ditched the electric cart and got back on his three-wheeled motorcycle. He was not arrested.

We spoke to a rep for the Yolo County DA's office, who tells TMZ, the case is currently under review ... and charges have not yet been filed against the comedian.

So far, no word from Target or Katt's people.

Why does TMZ think this is hilarious? No, seriously. What kind of f*cked up, juvenile, elitist a**holes work there that think it's funny to hit a service employee working near minimum wage but love and make excuses for Lindsay Lohan (and then trash Phillip Phillips, a local boy who done good). Honestly. You need to fire 50 twentysomething boneyheaded turd guys working there.

Hilarious? Hardly. Sure, assault employees who make barely minimum wage yet have to deal with guest abuse is hardly "Hilarious". Obviously, you people have never worked retail. We deal with this chit constantly. Why wasn't he arrested for assault?! pos

Katt was stoned and I bet it wasn't from weed. He's on the fast track to becoming a permanent D-Lister(he's B-List right now).

Does this look like he's on a Dane Cook-like career trajectory path? He's definitely used up 14:45 of his 15 minutes.

Ummmm....I watched the video like three times. I know a "pimp slap" when I see one. He hit dude more in the shoulder/arm area. Doesn't justify it though. Mr. Williams clearly needs help. Hope he gets it before he it's too late.
