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.

Of course he ran off before police arrived, that is all a ****** knows how to do other than start trouble in the first place.

That's a helluva story TMZ! Still pretty bizarre, but I beg to differ on your time lines:


The Target assault did not happen ”moments after the cop chase.” The CPO chase happened in Sacramento around 2:30 pm last Sunday. The assault in the Woodland Target store happened at 7:00 pm last Sunday.


Considering Woodland is 19 miles away from Sacramento, it is pretty unlikely Katt was able to arrive at Target 'moments later' on a Can-Am 3 wheeled motorcycle!

This guy has more legal issues than LL. He was reportedly driving 35 mph on a sidewalk full of pedestrians. The assault was terrible too, but he could have killed people. He needs to be locked up and treated for his coke addiction ASAP!

Katt Williams is a self-important, entitled, addled loser. Why is he not being charged with any of the crimes he committed that night? Because people think it's funny? It's ridiculous.

Just because Kat's a "little person" doesn't mean he has the right to go around slapping people.

I do have to say, fleeing on the electric cart is the best thing ever!

People need to quit pissing these celebs off just in search of a payoff. Yes this employee has his hand on his chest as if he's being the helpful employee but do you know the words coming out his mouth "NO"; I bet it wasn't something perfessionally said put in a nice way. Celebrities especially the ones in the constant media eyes for disrupts
